Re: New Member

Hi, Scott. It's good to see a Gettysburg reference come up. That's where I spent my college years (though I didn't do much fishing in the area itself).

Re: Has anyone ever caught a Sturgen on a FlyRod?

Eh, I think I was wrong. I don't think it was on a fly rod:

Re: Has anyone ever caught a Sturgen on a FlyRod?

I'm pretty sure one of the younger members on the forum did this last year, although he might have switched to bait at that point in his trip. I can't remember the details, but a quick search ought...

Re: a question on casting

That's a good point. And take it from a highly mediocre caster, that it can be that you're starting your forward cast too soon. Make sure your rod loads on the back cast. When I lose my timing (esp....

Re: How to keep your rod outa the water

I ought to just make that plan, instead of my result. That way, when I've got the rod tucked under my arm and turn around and see the reel 6 inches down in the current, I can smile with the...

Re: Hooked by a pike

I'm not sure how it happened to me (it's been close to 15 years ago). I've always used needlenose pliers for the small pike and muskies we'd catch (up to about 24 in) and that always worked fine. I...

Re: Hooked by a pike

Ooh -- sorry to see that. I once caught a pike on a crankbait that thrashed right when I reached for the lure, and somehow a hook on the same treble that was in the fish went into my thumb. I was...

Re: Native or Stockie?

Where are you in PA? Many parts of the state have good warmwater fishing, for sunfish, fallfish, and different bass.

When I lived in south-central PA, I always hated seeing the summer die-off in...

Re: Native or Stockie?

I've always thought coloration was a key part of it. Around here, there's a sharp distinction between the markings on native and stocked brookies -- it's unmissable. Pics I've seen of native rainbows...

Re: warmwater species advice

Darkcahill, what is the fish in the third picture? Doesn't look familiar to me at all.

Re: Big fish eat little fish!

That's incredible. I remember a few years ago a picture coming out (in Field and Stream?) of a northern pike that had tried to eat one of his barely smaller cousins.

I've never managed to land a...

Re: Have you doubled up?

I've had this happen a number of time with panfish, but rarely with anything else (never with trout).

The most memorable occasion (and also the first) came when two small smallmouths got on. It...

Re: Dry Fly Fishing is hard work!!

I'm interested in responses to this post, because a friend and I were just discussing this very issue. He prefers dries, and things that nymphing is much harder work. I'm not sure that nymphing is...

Re: How competitive is your fly fishing?

I will say that a streamside lunch is almost a necessity. One of the finest meals I've had it the past few years was simply a protein bar and some water while sitting on a rock in the middle of a...

Re: How competitive is your fly fishing?

I think that's good advice, and, for me (and probably a lot of us), a love of nature was a big part of what got me into fishing. At the same time -- and I'm willing to look like a goon here -- there...

Re: How competitive is your fly fishing?

I don't think I'm very competitive exactly anymore (although my Dad and I and friends and I used to have plenty of contests when I was a kid). Dad and I still joke about it when we're out, but I'm...

Thanks, Frank and Neil.

I'm glad to see I might not have to spend as much as I thought I might, but I'm wondering if there's any significant advantage to something like the Brodin when compared to...

Been fly fishing for about 17 years, although I took about 5 years off from it -- the stupidest thing I've ever done.

Re: Bluegill Bully's Review

This is good to hear. I've tied a few of these up recently, but hadn't considered fishing them under a popper. I'm anxious to get them out on the water.

Re: Which one?

I'm satisfied with my Prestige Plus (on my 4wt), but I've primarily used it for small brook trout, so I can't give any feedback on the drag or anything. I would think it would serve you fine.
