Re: Bassin

Nice streamer!
That pond looks like a cesspool. Be careful you don't fall in.

Re: my cousins 14lb largemouth!!

McFly,
That is one, big, beautiful fish! And your cousin actually used pretty light tackle and caught the fish in two feet of water.
In no way did I mean anything bad about your cousin with my...

Re: Finally good Jig Heads

DryFly,
I am just being honest. Why should I have to lie? I am a Patriot, but when I see what is happening to our country, it makes me throw up!!
It is embarrassing to me that American made stuff...

Finally good Jig Heads

I stopped at Bass Pro Shops today to pick up a couple fly tying things.
For catfish at night, I like to use a 1/32oz Jig Head and tie a Wooly Bugger on it. Perfect for a 8wt. The round head doesn't...

Re: smallmouth reels

I also use a 9' 6wt for smallies, sometimes a 8'6" 4wt.
I like the Orvis Battenkill Large Arbor reels the best. They have a great drag, very light, and modestly priced!!
Like Frank said above, when...

Re: Orvis blows.

Only kidding, Frank!!
I have a BS and a MS. Some would say that is a bit higher than a MA! Science used to be a higher calling than the arts!
Is your wife a doctor? I had a feeling with the pic you...

Re: Orvis blows.

Re: my cousins 14lb largemouth!!

Sounds like me, Frank! I would much rather catch a 10" bass on a light flyrod then catch a 14lb hog with heavy tackle!
It still makes me laugh when I see people like Bill Dance yank fish out of the...

Re: Largemouth & Sunfish

McFly, my late night vampire friend,
Thanks for the tip. I have found the same thing with the woolybuggers.
I don't even "palmar" the hackle anymore, I just put a couple wraps at the bead head....

Largemouth & Sunfish

I gave the trout a rest, and the Susquehanna is still high and brown, so I tried for some small largemouth bass and some sunfish.
Lot's of fun with my 1wt. All the bass were between 7" and 12". The...

Re: Native or Stockie?

I live in York. That's south central PA just below Harrisburg.
I fly fished the Susquehanna one million times. I think I know every rock in the river from Duncannon to Wrightsville! LOL

Re: a mouse for bass

Re: Dry Fly Fishing is hard work!!

I meant that a 6X tippet has a diameter of approx .004. With a small diameter line, especially flouro, even a size 16 tungsten bead head will sink pretty fast. I would say about 8 in per second.........

Re: Native or Stockie?

Sasha,
So true, but when I go fishing, I like to catch some fish.
There are some tiny wild trout streams here in PA. And with my 1wt I will have a great time there.
But .......... I would rather...

Re: Native or Stockie?

Thanks Mark,
I release everything anyway, after a pic, but I wondered why the trout here look so different.
Another thing that I've noticed is: the trout with a lot of yellow seem to be much more...

Native or Stockie?

I assume that these trout are native, or wild. But, how can you tell?
Some have a lot more yellow color and have vivid red dots. The stockies seem to be a washed out silver color.
Please chime in...

No bragging here, but every time I go fishing anymore in any stream I fish I always C&R trout in the "double digits"

Re: A quick and fun trip to the river 6-13

I think just like you do. Solitude in a beautiful clear stream is the best fishing IMHO!
And I must say that after using UL gear for a while, I'll never go back to the heavy, thick line carp tackle...

Re: help me with reel for 8'6" 5wt CPS

I also have a CPS. I got a 9' 4pc 6wt just before they stopped making them.

Dry Fly Trout - Nothing Better

Today I fished a "Fly Fishing Only C&R" creek with my Superfine. All the rain we got recently, so the water was still a little stained.
