Living in the "DACKS"

Hey all, I just wanted to share a little bit about living in the north eastern part of the Adirondacks "DACKS" in New York.
What can I say about the dacks? We live in a small town in the woods. We are only 20 miles from the US/Canadian border, about 60 miles from Montreal and it is these woods that I call home.
The temps have finally returned to normal, mid 40s and low 50s. Last few weeks have been in the mid 60s to low 70s. Just about all the leaves are gone...

journey to fly fishing

Well here goes my first attempt at writting a blog. I wanted to share my journey of how I became a fly fisherman. I am 43 years old and this is my 2nd season fly fishing. I am not sure if you can consider me a fly fisherman just yet as I am still learning the ropes. My journey started about 5 years ago when I married the girl of my dreams and decided to move to the Adirondacks in New York.

Hide Processing:

NOTE: Do NOT process hides if you have open cuts on your hands without laytex or nitril gloves. Be sure to REALLY wash your hands and forearms when the processing is complete. If you do manage to get an infected cut, it will grow that lovely red line up your arm rather quickly. With the warning given, I will state that I have done will over 100 times in my life with no problems and that I some woodchuck hides in my tying materials that were processed this way over...

Rods Miramichi Fishing Reports

Posted 08-07-2013 at 05:06 PM by britesalmon

Prayers being answered for Rain on the Miramichi for the 1st week of August

The hot topic on the Miramichi river is high water. Anglers were praying for rain all of July, and were their prayers ever answered for August. River levels are very high and leaving many pools barely fish-able for the most part.

Temperatures are hovering around the 60 to 65 (F) and the clairity is tea like, which is always good color for fishing.
