    Re: PA in August from Milford advicr

    I fished the Milford area of the Delaware many years ago chasing shad. You're probably about an hour or less from the Broadhead, and about the same distance from the Bushkill. I just googled the...

    Re: detachable fighting butt

    I had a Dave Lewis rod, many years ago. It was a 5 wgt so it didn't have a fighting butt. The only rods I have a fighting butt on are two of my three 8 wgts. I ordered a kit, I don't remember from...

    Welcome to the board. Not sure how much help I can give you. The majority of my fishing in Ontario has been a lodge on Lady Evelyn Lake which is a good 6 to 8 hour drive north of where you're...

    Re: What have you been tying today?

    I've been working on a trout box for my niece and her husband who just moved to Vermont, but I decided to take a break and tie up a couple of poppers and bass bugs. The poppers are a variation of...

    Re: Hollow Head Clouser Minnow

    Interesting pattern, though I wouldn't call it a Clouser. It's sort of on the lines of Bob Popovics Siliclone in shape. Definitely would make a nice finger mullet pattern. Does it ride in the...

    Re: Does size matter

    Depends on what I'm fishing for. I just enjoy fishing and the locations I end up in. If I'm fishing for bass I'd rather catch a 20 inch fish but I'm happy to catch smaller ones. There really...

    The second video is good. Unless I missed it no clear close up picture of the finished product. Definitely not a bugger, more of a large soft hackle. There is a least one bugger pattern that I...

    They don't really start spawning up here until May. I won't target bass sitting on a nest. Don't have a problem targeting bream though. I caught this one the week before Memorial Day last year. ...

    Winter's been a bust in the immediate Philadelphia area. The biggest storm we've had officially was 3-4 inches back in November. As I get older, I've lost my taste for a lot of snow and cold. So...
  19. Re: Fly rod weight for Bass and Trout and some good starter flies for each species.

    I've used a 6 wgt for trout at times. If you're dealing with 3-6 inch brookies it might be a bit of overkill. I caught a couple of brookies that size when I stopped to fish the Upper Credit River...
