Yes, angler skill will always be a greater factor than the hook type used.
Exactly... The unskilled angler is more likely to do a "long distance release" with a barbless hook, minimizing the opportunity for improper handling. :evil:

Re: truck chasers disappointment

If after the current restrictions are lifted, they wish to resume utilizing volunteers to "bucket stock" up and downstream from the easy vehicle access points, they'll have to notify someone. My local TU chapter normally solicits volunteers, via their website, their newsletter, and email. You don't ...

Re: Opening Day with Joe Brooks

I don't recall him although you seem to be a few years older than I am (born '65). .... He died when you were about 7 years old. In his prime, he was a popular outdoor writer, who wrote for the Baltimore Sun, and the big name outdoor magazines. He was one of the early pioneers popularizing fly fish...

Don’t see anything on the F+W website yet.
That's why I asked.
Their Facebook page is still talking about bats.

BTW: It's occurred to me that they may be waiting to announce until after the 1st, so they don't inadvertently create a new "opening day".

Re: Changes to NJ trout season about to be announced

Are they going to announce it?
It's not going to do much good if the general apathetic public, still thinks there's going to be a traditional opener on 4/11.

Re: Flyfishing Catskills

I used to fish Charlotte Creek in the 1970s. Just about any fly worked so well that I had to relearn fishing if I went elsewhere. I kept count once, 20 brookies in an hour while standing in the same spot. Has it changed? Thanks for all responses guys. I appreciate the help. And Pete, that's great t...

After transporting fishing tackle on an aircraft, check all the screws on the reel(s).
There's something about the vibrations on a plane that aren't good for keeping little screws tight.

Probably the only benefit of being 75 years old: no license required.
I don't consider it a benefit.
It's not only an insult, it's age discrimination.

Re: Andy B

Andy Brasco (screen name Andy B) was a wet fly specialist.
Especially good at Bergman style flies.

He stopped posting at NEFF in 2013 when Beetle was posting a lot of nonsense.
I haven't heard anything since.

Re: Idiot Governor Ignores Science, Bans Bear Hunting on State Land

Have you ever read any of the anti-hunting Facebook pages (especially the ones about bears)? That isn't politics, it has all the trappings of especially intolerant religion. If they could get their way, there would be an inquisition, burning at the stake, torture, stoning, beheadings, and especially...

This was already explained to you during the McGreedy/Corslime era.
Am I the only one who remembers?

People in "Bear Country" vote predominately Republican.
Democrat Governors want the bears to eat all the Republican voters.

Re: WTS surprise tenant

American eels can slither out of water and over dams very easily which is why we see them well upstream of even the largest of dams in rivers connected to the ocean. We had them spilling (more like slithering) out of the bucket up in Hampton on the Musky many years ago before either Finesville Mill...

Re: Musky "A Frame restoration" project starting soon

Wait, what? EPA stopped the project because of Native American weirs? I thought I made it clear that I was going slightly "off topic" with concerns about a different river. I believe google earth/maps has a time feature so they can see if the weir existed in previous years. If the weir had historic...
