Re: Bugs.

Those look wild, are they out of pt mountain. Those are the same wild brown, and I was asking myself that same question. We do have some from a couple nearby tribs that contribute a few wild browns to Point Mountain. Unfortunately the wild browns didn't come out of Pt Mountain, I only managed holde...

Re: Bugs.

I fished Friday night and saw a few sulphurs with sporadic rises. They were taking the sulphur soft hackle (and the GRHE wet as well) on the swing. Saturday night I fished the Rockaway, no sulphurs but there were big slate drakes hatching. Did well on the GRHE wet until the hatch really kicked in, t...

Re: NJ Stockies

With streamers I like to run the hook through the sharpener 4 or 5 times before I start fishing a new fly. Then again later if I'm nicking the bottom periodically. Sharp hooks increase hook ups and holds with the larger streamer hooks.

Re: Columbia Dam removal

Hows the new water fishing? Any one checking it out I thought the area including the parking lot was still closed? If anyone knows please confirm, I usually park there to fish the D for smallies but i'd prefer not to make the haul out there if I can't park. The whole area from Warrington Rd to Rt. ...

Re: leaders - buy or diy

I mostly use furled leaders and add 24"-36" of tippet depending on the situation. Otherwise I go knotless and add tippet as needed.

Re: Dirty water wild browns

That second pic of the undercut bank is MONEY!!! Im sure a few big ones that that bank home! I still havent been out since it warmed up, I gotta change that soon.... I agree. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to find out if there was more than one good fish in there. The pool is probably 15' lon...

Dirty water wild browns

Got out Saturday 4/20 for some rainy day, small stream wild brown fishing. Went retro with a Fenwick Feralite. Stream conditions were just where I was hoping they'd be, up with some color to the flow.Managed a couple of little browns and was satisfied, then it happened. I got to a nice undercut, fli...

Re: Who Wears A Vest?

I wear a vest most of the time. It has my staff and net right were I need them plus everything I need and more (too much more). But I like it.

I do have a chest pack that I wear instead for my small stream, bushwacking adventures.

5 minutes from my house,
Probably the primary reason I've fished it twice in 40 years, it takes me an hour and change to get there. I pass a lot of productive water on the way or an hour gets me into the Pocono's. Nah not really, its more cause of the crowds of a-hole's

Can't wait. More people on the water and all of the nice sized holders end up on a stringer.
I'm going to go get me a fall stocker holdover this weekend. 6 months in the river on natural food should make them better table fare. :lol:
