Re: Any New Toys Purchased or Waiting on Delivery?

Found the reel I was looking for to match up with the rod. Wanted to keep the rig American made and Orvis. Got lucky and found a 4/5 Orvis Madison with a rare spare spool, and suede Orvis reel case at an amazing price. Christened the rod this morning with a decent brown in the first run. Water was ...

Next purchase will be in the next month or so I will get a kayak. With foot pedals will fish out of it but need to get it ready and used to it so I can duck hunt with it
pedal kayak is a game changer for sure ;)

Re: Musconetcong TCA - Penwell

Nuff said. I’ve invested in a stream thermometer and will use it diligently in the future. Thanks for all the good info. This is how we are learn from this site. I use a net more diligently now also. I just used to unhook & release while the fish was in the water. But they used to thrash somewhat. ...

Re: Musconetcong TCA - Penwell

I did not use a thermometer, but by feel, I would say 70 degrees trout fishing in 70* water is deadly for trout if your trying to C&R. I personally dont fish for trout in NJ in the summer months. But I do fish for trout in NYS @ Upper Delaware West Branch. The water in that area is about a constant...

Re: The cats meow of fishing net holders !!!!

I'll stick with my magnetic release. I just put the two magnets near each other over my shoulder and they find each other and lock together. Never have had an issue with them. I also tried the magnetic lanyard on 1 of the hooks on my wading belt. It was easier to hook up. But the net hung in awkwar...

Re: The cats meow of fishing net holders !!!!

Looks nice. I use a folding net when I need to net them, for the most part I use a release, don't even touch them. This is something new if you haven't seen it. https://livelylegz.com/collections/equipment-nets/products/netman both have the same concept . the 1 I use has a lever to release the net....

The cats meow of fishing net holders !!!!

I used to have the magnetic leash lanyard hanging from the hook on my waders on back straps . What a PITA it was to reattach after ever use. But with this system its a pleasure to use. Reminds me of holstered 9mm glock😂😂😂. All I do is reach for the handle & click the lever. The holser itself attache...
