Re: Guides icing up

Vaseline is petroleum based and so are fly lines. So I doubt it would do any harm and might just work. My solution to icing guides is a 100% fix. I leave the fly rod home and go hunting this time of the year. Haven't had a single icing issue since! :D Just your fingers from poor circulation though....

Re: Guides icing up

Get a stick of Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm and use that on the guides. Works great and doesn't hurt the fly line. Does vaseline hurt the line? I could see Burts working as well, any waterproof product..chap stick, carmex? :D Vaseline is petroleum based and so are fly lines. So I doubt it would do ...

Re: Guides icing up

Put a little Vaseline on the guides, it won't stop it, but it will help slow the buildup of ice.

Re: Rhinehart Brook brown trout removal...

@NJangler They're trying to divide streams into three different classifications, Native Brook trout streams, Wild brown Enhancement streams, and the combination of the two, just called 'wild trout streams'. The later two classifications are going to be left alone, they want a healthy population of ...

Re: Trees, trees and moe trees....

Hi, How come when I’m fly fishing there are no trees around but as soon as the trout start to rise all the trees come down along the stream side and all you do is catch trees. Does anyone else have this problem? Everyone have a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year. Bill the mailman. PS. I have not caugh...

It's only a half hour drive to the KLG from the Green Brook, think about that.
But there are no fish in the KLG, no point in making the drive. :)
