Re: My first day of fly fishing (with a guide)

Re: Really fly fishing?

Funny.. When I just started fly fishing 2 years ago, I too thought that Fly Fishing was only about drifting a "Fly" on the top of the water.
I found out about nymphs from the local fly shop. I...

Re: Beginner

Just from my experience, you can get an extremely inexpensive reel and it will do just fine for what you intend to fish for. It's not until you need to get into larger fish that you need to worry...

Re: odd question

I think BY FAR the BEST points made in this post are those surrounding "Where did the fish come from?"

If you are fishing a heavily stocked lake or stream, IMHO the intent of those fish being...

Re: Safe for a Trout?

OK.. I feel better. I did put him in the slow water and rock him a few times.... and he swam away from me with a pretty good burst.

Safe for a Trout?

Some of you may think this is a dumb question, but I'll ask it anyway. Is it safe for a trout to be laid on the grass for a quick picture, and then returned to the stream or is this detrimental to...

Now that the long cold winter of Northeast Pennsylvania is nearing it's end I am back into fly fishing mode. I have a quick question. As some of you may have read, I made a recent...

Re: Newbie

Welcome aboard Trixie. I started right around the same time as you (July '07). I fished more during the late summer and fall with my fly gear than I had the previous 5 years put together with my...

went to Cabelas

WOW. That's a fly fishermans candystore. I know it's like the Lowe's of fly fishing and it stresses all the local shops, but it's still quite impressive. I spend $500 in the matter of an hour on...

Re: Your home/favorite Fly Shop?

Re: tie or buy?

Since I dont know how to tie 'em, I buy 'em.

Eventually I think I will get into fly tying, but for now, being new to the sport, if I'm not having success and I know I'm using the right flies, I...

Most of my fishing is done within a 20 mile radius of where I live, so it wont have too much of an effect.

Re: What's your "bread and butter" species?

Smallmouth Bass fishing on the Susquehanna river in late summer is some of the best fishing anyone can ask for. Trout streams in northeast PA are abundant, but I love the fight of a big 'ol smallie....

Re: "Hooked on Fishing"

Re: Newbie needs recommendations

Take it from another "newb", you'll most likely want to go 5 or 6wt. Stillwater bass fishing will require you to be able to throw some larger terrestrials and streamers and those lightweight rods...
