A Guy Fishes Streamers & Get Skunked;

Posted 04-27-2015 at 02:40 PM by Hardyreels

I found a post today that was about a fellows first day fishing streamers and he ask where to try the next time. I couldn't tell him where to fish so I tried to help him understand how.

Hi,

Although I no longer live in the North East I may be able to offer advice anyway. If you like fishing streamers there are almost always a few fish you should be able to get interested in your flies. If I were on the stream you were at last week first off I would want to know what...

The 2012 Bear Encounter;

The Bear Encounter

It was August and as summer wound down the season had been pretty much a total bust for salmon. Almost every river from the Yukon in Western Alaska to here in my region was closed for the poor king salmon returns. Our Silvers were closed on many rivers as well.

During July I had became so desperate for fresh salmon I drove all the way to Chitna on the Copper River to try my hand at dip netting for sockeye. All I can tell you about this adventure is...

Fishing Streamers, Where & When Part 1;

Posted 03-14-2015 at 01:47 PM by Hardyreels

Sometimes I don’t know what will be the best way to explain something about fishing to other people. Should it be a nuts & bolts ‘How To’ kind of message or should it be related through a story. I can become easily bored with either methood and I worry when I start off writing something. Will it make sense? Like everything I write into the threads here this will be something that represents an opinion. It is my opinion but I reach this type of assessment through years of practice so I'll share...

Streamers, Where & When Part 2;

Posted 03-14-2015 at 01:47 PM by Hardyreels

So, where was I............

One of my best examples would come from history, my own times fishing on Pennsylvania’s famous Penn’s Creek. There is a very large pool, I mean long, wide and deep that exists about ¾ mile below where little Cherry Run dumps its freestone water into the big limestoner. This pool was a favored place for a friend of mine some 16 years ago and he always ask if I wanted to travel down there with him when the Green Drake’s were on the water. On my second years...

So what was it I was going to write about in this thread? Oh yeah, where & when. The where is almost always those places you and very few others bother to fish. These places are often like I described in the remembrance here, pretty deep and swift. The when can be as it was for me that June evening but I really liked fishing the crack of dawn for brown trout. Getting into position to fish downstream before it is light enough to see to cats usually ensures that you’ll have at least a couple hours...
