Does anyone have any information on how to get these suckers in slack water or other areas? Thanks.
There's a circular for mid-atlantic fly fishing streams at every fly shop in the area. The most recent (May) issue has an article on Town Creek in Greenridge State park. I haven't read it yet, but you might try looking at it for pointers.
