  1. thank you!
  2. when does the migration to spawn usually start?
  3. early in the season…march, april, …i go to local urban rivers/ponds just to air out casts. I always run into early fishermen. This year, for th first time…each spot i went (3) the only other fishermen were beginner fly fishermen..i think beard growing IPA drinking hipsters might be creeping in..perhaps its some steam punk attraction at first…but i feel younger people are so void of tangible outdoor experiences it may come back..Also, river why movie was thought to be the next RRTI…but it was a bomb.
  4. Absolutely. RIP Ray..Prayers to the Area Family.
  5. Large.Small Mouth, or Stripers??
  6. herring and tarpon have similar mouths..never knew they were related.
  7. x-select marabou hareline
  8. No need for lights and light clothing….
  9. any herring run with bass with have monsters with that extra protein..caught one like this at a herring terminus lake..
  10. Uglay flies, Ugly casts, and Ugly fisherman all catch fish…heres an ugly that caught just last night
  11. that 'line' Thats the phone, you can see his hands clasped behind that all in shadow of course.
  12. I love nettles. You boil them and the broth has a very rich, almost buttery taste. The Nettle are used many ways, on pizza, sautéed with onions in a frittata, pesto, risotto..they are very tasty made properly ..
  13. they are there in numbers 2 days ago…water was very high and fast
  14. really nice...
  15. booby fly
  16. mine hurts bad. even touching it hurts. I haven't cast in months..and started over the winter so its odd.. grabbing and picking things up ( like my laptop right now) hurts..pissed.
  17. Hows the weather in WY and MT , Colo has very good weather.
  18. I know a guy, Tony…owns a Mist guard company. Sprays pymetherin on timers like an irrigation system..i don't have problems with ticks at home..just in the woods...
  19. How about Feral Cats?? now everyone spays and neuters…so no wild cats eating the field mice..
  20. anyone think the loss of pheasant and partridge population have anything to do with this???
  21. Damn start a weather blog….lolol
  22. nice on your flatwings?
  23. All kidding aside..you will definitely see a bump from this story. It is what it is…after a couple skunks they'll go back to Canal etc. In fact, something like this will inspire some young kid to try and catch a charles river striper, and after skunks..might actually continue to the canal, plum island in search of one.
  24. This is my favorite color as well. but i never have tried on jig hooks…what do you find as the benefit?
