Default Hello from the Catskills!

Just wanted to put up a post to say hello, and I'm glad I found this forum.

I live in the northeast section of the Catskills (NY), not far from Hunter and Windham mountains.

Been fishing for a few years, but just got my first fly rod in March. My great husband is teaching me how to fly fish and to tie flies. We've been fishing the Schoharie lately, done a little in the Catskill Creek (with NO luck at all), but I do wanna go north up to the Deerfield and south to the Esopus. One of these weekends we're going to camp and fish the Moose River as well.

Anyway, I look forward to reading your posts and gaining some knowledge.

Ang

Thanks for the welcome Ar. I'm thinking that you are from Arkansas? If so, I am too, originally. I lived over on the northeast side. I use to fish the Spring River!

But I have to say, the fishing here in the NE is better than it was there . Of course, I never fished up in the Cotter area.... I should have, just never did.

LOL yeap from North Cent. Ar, Greers Ferry Lake area. We went on a float/fish trip on the Spring River last year, caught tons of fish and had a ball. The Little Red River is like 5 minutes from the house, caught several 10+lb browns last fall/winter. Glad ya like it up north but I'll stay in the south, thank you ma'am

Many anglers feel the Beaverkill is the birthplace of fly fishing in America.

Tried to fish the Esopus on Sunday... was a little too cool and windy for me.

BUT, my husband managed about an 18" brown! I think he does it just to show me up

Welcome,
The Esopus is an awesome creek to fish. If you can get to the other side of the Hudson the Roecliff Jansenkill is also a great spot.
