Thread: Hi from NW Connecticut

  1. #1

    Default Hi from NW Connecticut

    Hi!

    I got back into fly fishing last July after a 10 year layoff. Took an Orvis 101 class which was held down the road from me, by the Blackberry River.

    I learned a lot.....got some new gear and have been whipping the water to a froth!

    I have tons to learn and am looking forward to being an active member of this forum.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    Thanks Dave and Larry.......Larry, niiiiiiice fish!!!!

    I've learned so much in the last few months that my head is gonna bust!

    The best part is I've got all kinds of different fishing options here, and I mean right here. In ten minutes, I could walk to a trout management river that is stocked with 9,000 trout each year (6,000 yearlings). Everything from pasture pools to white water. It's about 6 miles long, starting from springs up in the mountains. The mountain rises 1,200ft above the river(It's the view from my house).

    There are two lakes in the next town stocked with trout and salmon with a river stocked with trophy trout bordering our two towns.

    Where do I start?

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Joe

    Thanks Eddie!

    You certainly don't have to go far for some great waters.

    Do you have a favorite "home" stream or lake?

    Hi Joe, moved to Sherman in June last year, so still checking places out. I do love the Housatonic, great river.

    Welcome Joe

    I'm right down the road from you, walking distance to East branch of the Naugatuck.

    Just got "into" fly fishing after trying poorly to learn some time ago.

    Always open to meeting new people and exploring new fishing holes, I have always wanted to hit up the Blackberry.

    Feel free to get hold of me

    John
