Re: 1st River Trip of the 2019 Trout Season

Nice fish. I fished the FB Saturday morning. Water was brown and moving, wasn't expecting it to be so high, must of received more rain then projected. Managed six, a couple were nice size. When the sun came out late morning I saw a few Hendrickson coming off. Not enough surface activity to switch fr...

Anyone Hit A No Kill Stretch This Weekend?

Did you find it stocked?

As for myself I was working around the yard, best to get it out of the way ASAP. More time for fishing during prime bug season.

Re: Sink Tip Fly Line

Thanks all for the replies. I was thinking our streams may be to shallow under normal conditions, needed others thoughts experiences before investing in a sink tip line. Need to sleep on it. I have a spare reel, may be worth the investment for the Upper Delaware. I see some really inexpensive sink t...

Sink Tip Fly Line

Do you use one? If so on which streams and how do they work?

Just wondering if truly useful for fishing streamers on Jersey streams.

Re: I Need Some New Waders

I was impressed with the high end Chota waders I saw at the show in Edison, and they won't break the bank. The Hodgeman H4 and H5 waders were also nice with reasonable prices, especially if you shop online and know the size you need. The new Orvis lightweight waders were also nice, higher price but ...

Saw LBS and Beatis on the Musky yesterday. The warm temps got them popping for a few days anyway.
Fishing or surveying? Haven't been to Musky or any of the "larger" NJ streams since the rains blew them out. If fishing any luck?

Re: Next on your purchase list

Most likely waders. My current set is still fine, but not sure will last the season. I do need a packable lightweight wading jacket. I like the one offered by LLBean but they don't have my size in stock anywhere. I have time, if it doesn't come into stock i'll probably get the Simms or Patagonia. Wh...

Re: Edison Fly Fishing Show this weekend

The show blew its chance to fix the first year's layout which EVERYONE complained about last year (and now again this year). The stupid casting pond needs to be jammed up against the wall and out in the middle of the flow of foot traffic. Just like it was in Somerset They set everything up the exac...

Re: Edison Fly Fishing Show this weekend

I was there Friday as the doors opened, hate the weekend crowd. Always a good show, lots to see and buy, which I did (buy) little of, only stocking up on the few essentials. I primarily use Tenkara gear so there is little I need, and I did adopt the minimalist approach of Tenkara. That being said I ...
