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:

Re: stuck in a rut

Confidence is key , but the bottom line is you got to go where the fish are , you always increase your chances when you go some where you know the population of trout is high. Yes that sounds simple , but it might be a factor . Very true! I learned to nymph at the KLG. Lots of hungry fish there mos...

Re: I Need Some New Waders

I hear you on the Simms price tag, I used to be the same way but then I gutted it up and bought a pair. Best thing I ever did. They paid for themselves twice over since I get them, wore them 10 years then off loaded them on to my son and got a newer pair. I used to go through waders every season or ...

Re: Bamboo Fly Rod over Fireplace Mantle?

OK, you asked for opinions, so here is mine: NO, fish it, or sell it to someone who will. If it is in bad shape, and not a viable rod then give it (or sell it for a smaller amount) to someone who will fish it. Then buy a cheap piece of crap that you would never fish, or is un usable and hang that o...
