Pt. 2 - Each Winter Is Different Things Are Changing.

Posted 03-17-2016 at 06:18 PM by Hardyreels

It's been three years now since I got serious about handling my own freight needs. In part this was driven by fuel expenses which drove the cost of having someone haul heavy loads for you up to 32 cents a pound. That's 320.00 per thousand pounds........... So I bought into a sled build, this is kinda like a kickstarter thing. I put up the seed money which bought the materials for 2 sleds. I got my sled for the seed money invested and the second sled sold for 2300.00 so I got the deal.

Finally Got Something Done ..........

Posted 02-16-2016 at 06:17 PM by Hardyreels

I do wish that I had some pictures of the cabin when it was a log shell. No windows, no insulation, just a stack of spruce logs surrounded by trees and Devils Club that you could hardly see from out on the lake.

Netting Fish

Posted 01-01-2016 at 03:42 PM by Hardyreels

In concept the use of a net to capture a fish already hooked by a fly is supposed to make the final stage of catching that fish easier. In my many years of fly fishing and I can now get away with saying many at this point so I have.

While the concept is good and can work very well to your advantage there are some things to know that will make the use of a net a better experience for both fisherman and fish. I have recently had a discussion with another guide and a very experienced...

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...
