  1. Glad to see you on the water, BFD! Looking forward for your future reports!
  2. Thanks a lot for the information! I had some kind of Saltwater Registration for NJ last year. Is it the same thing? If yes, I think I can just renew that online. Thanks again!
  3. I will be in Montauk NY this weekend. I’m not sure if I need to buy fishing license to fly fish there. Can I do it online? I have general idea where I want to go. But I’m not sure what flies will work this time of the year. Please PM me if you prefer. Thanks!
  4. I have upcoming family weekend trip to Sister Bay, WI. It will be only for weekend. I’m not sure what to bring and where to go. Any information will be helpful. PM me if you prefer. I can take spinning rod as well. Thank you!
  5. Best wishes to BFD and his family for speedy recovery!
  6. Good luck and wishes of speedy recovery, BFD!
  7. Get well, BFD! Hope to see you fishing soon!
  8. BFD, You beat that thing before and you will do it again! Best wishes and tight lines!
  9. Here is my setup on older OK Prowler 13. White box on top is battery. Whole setup is easy to put on and take off to transport. Works for me in the last 5 years. Thanks!
  10. Thank you everyone for good information! I fished in Sandy Hook last year. Not much luck, just couple of blues from kayak on the fly. It was fun! This trip I want to explore new places east of NYC. And I want to stay away from the city as far as I can. I just need to be in Manhattan on Monday morning around 8:30 am. Yes, I will travel in my car and I do have waders. Based on the timing, I think I can do one or two outings. May be on Sunday morning or evening or both. So, I think I need to stay as closer to the beach as possible. Thank you for the tip on AirBnB, Cman! I will check it out. This time in the year (late July), what kind of flies do I need? I’m not looking for particular species. I will be happy if I catch anything! Thanks again!
  11. Thank you, Crazybellringer and Nicknotsebastian! I guess I will be fishing in Long Island. I just need to figure out where to stay for couple of nights. Any suggestions for something not too expensive? Also, do I need license to fish there? Thanks!
  12. I need to be in Manhattan on Monday July 30th. So, I’m thinking to spend weekend somewhere in 2-hours’ drive from it and do beach fly fishing. I’m not familiar with the area and I’m looking for any suggestions from experience people. I did think about Montauk. But it’s almost 3 hours’ drive and all hotels want 3 nights stay minimum. But I can do only 2 nights. So, I think Connecticut shore will work better. All way to New Haven or even New London. Please PM me if you prefer. Thank you!
  13. I’m roof topping OK Prowler 13 upside down for 10+ years. It’s dark green. Never had any problems, even in full sun for 8+ hours. Disadvantage is extra time to mount everything back on (FF, seat, crate, etc.) and take it off after the trip. However, I had some hull deformation after leaving my kayak on the cart for one hot summer night.
  14. Sorry, Magoober! I did not see your post earlier. Laurenz is a good guy. We did not see any fish, but it’s other story. I did couple of DIY outings. There are some flats next to Ritz-Carlton. Go north and you will see old ship wreck. I got few small fish between hotel and wreck. Nothing big. I took local bus to get there. Any shrimp looking flies with a lot of flash should work. You can fish in front of any hotels. Just go earlier, during the day it will be crowded. I did see one fly fisherman next to “Baby Beach” on south side of the island. But you will need to rent a car to get there. Overall, not much fly fishing opportunities in Aruba. But I’s a beautiful place for family vacation. Good luck to you!
  15. Ice fishing time!
