Re: opening day strategy
It's always a circus in PA...I stay home.
But if you have to go and can't make a trip away from the crowded streams, there are ways. Take a roll of yellow caution tape and a can of white spray paint. Once you have located a prime spot to fish, head out at midnight with a friend. Tape off an appropriately comfortable area on the stream. Next, lie down in the middle of the taped off area and have your friend spray a white outline around you, preferably in a contorted position. Please, no fake blood as that would be tacky. If done correctly, this should clear a stretch of stream for 50-100 yards on either side of the "scene".
