Re: GST Fishing Camaraderie Day 5/22/22 @ the lower KLG

Hopefully we can get a confirmation that the lot is open. As we know, it’s busy on the slowest of days. I’m hopeful the cool nights will keep the temps fishable, but as Joe said, crazy we have to talk about this in May!! Unfortunately the temperature function for the gauge is off now. I have it on ...

Re: GST Fishing Camaraderie Day 5/22/22 @ the lower KLG

Bump. The weekend will bring air temps in the 90s--with afternoon T-storms--but I plan on fishing the Lower KLG Sunday morning if the water temps are still under 67 degrees.

all it takes is a mere 150 feet away from the stocking point. thats a no go for some.
No doubt, couldn't agree more. As long as I'm ambulatory, I'm going to use it to my advantage.

Re: Is this the new fly that everyone is raving about ?

What ever happened to "fly" fishing"? We are supposed to be representing aquatic insects in all stages of life, not a canned corn kernel, I mean, I am even against egg flies and squirmy worms. Fur and Feathers only, maybe some carpet material....Ya'll should go back to powerbait and worms... :D :D ...

There is something written on the handle of that net, can anyone make it out?
I think it reads, "Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes."

Nothing fancy and I'm not a big 'boo snob by any means.

You are a dry fly snob so it would be fitting if you were. 😄
Hardly. I've seen Brian tie--actually, "smudge-smash" would be the better verb--a glob of neon powerbait onto that bamboo...

Re: Unnamed Brookie WTS

These responses are making me think back to the 'Boofests from years ago. Drossi, Rollcast, and whoever else out there with a bamboo rod--let me know if you want to hit a stream together.

Sweet stream. Very sweet stick, love the darker cane. What taper and weight is the Elser? I have a 7' 3" Recker done on a Garrison 204e taper that fishes a 4wt, my small stream rod as well.
The taper is a Payne 98 which the builder tweaked just a little. It's a 4 wt.

Re: Unnamed Brookie WTS

A funny thing happened on my way back to the parking lot. Three young African Americans were walking towards me. One was wearing an Easy E t shirt. Now depending on when you grew up, you may or may not recognize that name. If you don't know, Easy E was known as The Godfather of gangsta rap. He died ...

Unnamed Brookie WTS

My family ventured out today to a trail where my sons rode their bikes, my wife went walking, and I brought my bamboo fly rod built by Bernie Elsner. It is a beautiful two-piece seven foot three inch rod. I tied on a small white Cahill and had a blast on this unnamed wild brook trout stream that is ...
