Seen on the door going into work this morning and now in the spider web. Some small brown mayfly with two tails. No big streams in the area but a large pond that is fed by a small creek and then has an outflow. IMG_0506.jpeg I have also seen dobson flies on my building so I know hellgrammites are ne...

Not to worry, I've got your back as your sole moderator. But it's going to cost you. I am demanding a 40% raise!
Will you accept payment in IPA or whiskey?

Re: Funeral service?

I thought this was about me for a second!! I'm alive, even if my site is on life support.... As Rusty mentioned, other forms of social media have taken over and left forums behind. If its not app based on your phone, its lost to time at this point. I'm more guilty than any of you for not posting or ...

Re: cold feet ? while wading in the winter ?

Late reply but… Size up! Get a boot a full size bigger and wear only polyester and pure wool. My feel stayed warms for years of steelheading this way. I used a thin polyester sock liner and a single pure wool sock. Don’t tighten your boots too much and you will be good. Also, sound obvious but, keep...

Thank You for 15 Years of GST!!

Hi everyone, 2023 marks 15 years since Garden State Trout was started back in 2008, while I was still just a kid in college drinking Appletinis (long story)… As many members know, I started GST to fill the void after NJ Trout announced that the forum would be shutting down. Back before BookFace, Ins...

The rubber mats used for opening a jar may help. Also try behind your back. Pull straight, do not twist!!

Back Up and Running!

Hi Everyone!

Sorry for the down time this week! My auto-renew with the hosting service didn't go through so the site was suspended until they got their $$$. Thanks for your patience!

To Jim: I am happy to have called you a friend. Even it that just meant hanging around Shannon’s for nearly the last 20 years. Getting fishing advice. Tying flies in the back room.

Fixing Flies

Is anyone else a cheap bastard like me and fixes flies back home? If I notice the head wrapping on a fly starting to come undone after catching a few, I will put it aside and take it the vise when I get home to glue or re-wrap it. Maybe its not because Im cheap but rather see tying flies as a chore ...
