    CT Shore
  1. I have slip or mooring space near my house. That said, I drive a full size pick up that can handle most towing issues. I am thinking used 17-19 should fit the bill.
  2. OK .. liking this Forum. I have a 44 ft Jeanneau DS Sailboat in Mystic, pristine condition , and selling her, listed on Selling her so I can get a Powerboat and a smaller fishing boat. Love going to Block, Newport, Nantucket, best part of the World IMHO. Always in Boston, kids are there, we have a small house outside of Mystic, CT. Love it up there. Oh and Foulhook, I accept, lets's go fishing dude! Thx
  3. Nice boat!
  4. Not sure what I need on length, I would think at least 17 -18ft. Center console seems logical.
  5. Starting to look for used boats for fly fishing in the CT/ RI area. Will be in the Watch Hill, Race, Fishers Island Sound area. Not sure exactly what I should be looking for. ( Sailed for years and always fly fished in streams...until NOW) Any help appreciated.
  6. Thank you all. I'm getting psyched! Let's talk about used boats if possible. I have a sailboat in Mystic, so I know the waters fairly well and have the CT license , etc... Are we thinking: 17-19 ft. Boston Whaler type boat? Center console?
  7. Thanks everyone. Looks like a 10 wt may be the logical choice. My new neighbor showed me pics of monsters caught locally. For sure shore fishing would be a good idea for now. I'm close to Bluff Point State Park , CT so may try that first. Now to figure out lines, leaders flies, etc.. Is there a local fly shop along the CT shore that people recommend?
  8. Hi, I just joined the forum. Been fly fishing for many years, mainly trout. Done some salt here and there but all in the Keys and Bahamas for tarpon and bones. Anyhow, just bought a summer place in the low tax state of CT ... Looking to do some striper fishing there, pending the boat purchase. For now, I will beg the guy down the street to take me on his boat. Will be fishing Fishers Island Sound, The Race, Watch Hill , etc.. I have a couple of 8 weights. Should I be moving up to a 9 or 10wt rod?
