First Time On the West Branch of the Delaware

First Time On the West Branch of the Delaware

This past Monday my mom and I hit the road for a most memorable trip to the WBD. We were going to the West Branch Angler and Resort on the Orvis hosted trip for three days and three nights, all were spent eating, sleeping (minimally) and fishing. We got there Monday afternoon and quickly unloaded our...
Name This Fly

Name This Fly

Before I started posting, I always had wanted more posts about step-by-step fly tying. Flies that were not just the run of the mill Buggers, Adams Etc, Etc, I wanted newer or experimental patterns that still had yet to be fished thoroughly.

Late Season Steelhead

Late Season Steelhead

This week I had heard of much quality fishing to be had many places in and around Rochester. While I knew Irondequoit would probably fish well, I chose to fish Allen’s Creek. Allen’s creek is a fun summer fishery, but I had never trusted to go there for salmon, lake run browns or steelhead, as I...

A Couple of Tips for Irondequoit

Over the past 3 weeks, I have enjoyed countless 2-3 hour excursions to different parts of Irondequoit Creek, but especially Powder Mills Park. The fishing is relatively easy, but technical. What I mean is, the fish aren’t selective, but they do demand good presentation. For example, on almost all...
Smallmouth Heaven

Smallmouth Heaven

On a recent and rather unexpected trip to the Adirondacks (friends called and invited me to join them a couple days ahead) I was in great anticipation. I love to fish for anything that bites, but if I had my pick, I’d pick smallmouth. They never disappoint in just how hard they fight from ½ a pound...
