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...

This blog......

Posted 03-13-2015 at 12:50 PM by srs2782

So I just found out that members can create blogs on this forum; making this the ultimate “one stop shop” for anyone interested in the world of Fly Fishing. Something I have thought about repeatedly over the past year as my passion for fly fishing has consumed me is how fun it would be to start a blog. The thought I had was I would like to chronicle my own exploits as I attempt to navigate this world of the fly angler and my journey into this lifestyle. My goal is to write about each monumental...

Baptism by Steelhead. A beginner’s narrative.

Posted 03-13-2015 at 12:18 PM by srs2782

It was a Sunday just after Christmas and it was an unseasonable 40 degrees in Western New York. The morning arose and it was a grey, overcast scene. A few days earlier I had skillfully (in my opinion) invited myself along on a trip down to The Big River to chase some Steelhead on the fly. Let me be honest I tagged along under the guise of taking pictures fully knowing I was going to watch two seasoned anglers do what they do best. The first, my Uncle who aside from my Dad has had the most influence...
