May’s Bounty

May’s Bounty

May is an awesome month for the fly fisher.  It offers the wonderful angling conundrum of too many choices and species to chase.  This is especially true in New York State.  It’s the time of year when Spring fully awakens, water temperatures rise and fisheries come more active. ...

Al and the Three Bears

Al and the Three Bears

Al wasn’t one to miss quality dry fly action.   It surprised me that he wasn’t in his usual spot, targeting risers.  We were fishing a productive flat of the West Branch of the Delaware and our day was going well.  We enjoyed considerable fishing success and things looked...
Salmon River Craziness

Salmon River Craziness

Many fly fishers won’t fish the Salmon River in September and October.  It’s tough to fault them, as it can be a crazy, crowded scene.  Over nearly two days of fishing, I witnessed fish snagged, angling space invaded, fish illegally possessed and way too much trash left stream side. The...
Warm Water Big And Small

Warm Water Big And Small

if you are seeking a muse for warm weather fly fishing, just consider the many species that will give your fly reel a noisy spin. Perch on a 3 weight fly rod, large Carp with a 7 weight, Largemouth Bass with a 5 weight or Inland Trout can all be good fun on a hot summers day. I caught both of these fish...

Smallies, not Steelhead

Smallies, not Steelhead

Darn, they were in there just a few days ago… Fortunately,  we managed...

Dandelion Time

Dandelion Time

“Wait for the dandelions.”  Once they start blooming, expect quality fishing.  It’s a mantra that a fishing friend espouses.  It’s not bad advice.  Dandelions are something that you can set your Springtime clock to.   We’ve been pulling them in my yard for about a...
Hendricksons on the Main Stem of the Delaware

Hendricksons on the Main Stem of the Delaware

Nothing shakes off the cold of winter more than sun shining and trout rising to mayflies.  The vision of trout slurping down early springtime mayflies is a thing of beauty.  If you are dry fly fisherman and you target trout, it’s only a matter of time before anticipation builds.  Excitement for...
