    Default Hello eveyone

    I'm new to the forum but not new to fly fishing. Been fishing here in upstate ny for about 35yrs. I've noticed that no one is talking here in the northeast. What's up with that? Lots of things to talk about in Feb.

    I'm near the rochester area. Lots of creeks in the area and most are within an hour drive time. One creek is about 10 minutes from my house. I also do fly fishing and tying schools at a 4 acre trout pond in the area. We stock it with Kamloops rainbows. Some of these fish are approaching the 5 and 6 lb range. Our season doesn't open until April 1st so I'm chomping at the bit. I'll try to post some pics of our hatchery and the fish. These babies have got some shoulders. They will definitely make you drool.

    I have to get refreshed on posting pics. These Kamloops are huge. Our breeders are in the 8 to 10 lb range. When they are first stocked they take just about anything but as the hatches start, they can get tough. We have a chironomid hatch early and the fish single them out. Later the Damsels start along with a #14 BWO. On a good day, your into your backing about 6 or so times.
