RIP Nelson Bryant

Growing up in a non-outdoorsy family, his columns in the NYT helped fuel my interest in fishing during my youth and early teens. I particularly like this passage quoted in the article, referring to pickerel and trout: “The thought of fly casting for a fish that bears a superficial resemblance to a s...

Re: Annual Holiday book giveaway---trivia contest

Wow! I won something on the interwebs. This is a first for me. I found two "Uncle John" references, with "the other one" connected to the Neversink being VanBenschoten. Maybe there are more, as Uncle John was no doubt a common sobriquet. I even have one of them (but not a fisherman) in my family. Th...

Re: Fishing with

When I worked in Mount Kisco, I used to hop in there sometimes before/after work. Nice small water, with some feisty little browns. Never caught any that were close to the 12" minimum, but they must be in there somewhere because they keep making babies.

Battenkill this weekend?

The wife and I are probably heading up to Burlington VT for the long weekend and if I can talk her into it, I may have her drop me off somewhere along the way (or at least not too far out of the way) for a couple hours of fishing while she does something she enjoys. Was thinking maybe somewhere arou...

Re: Rules

Nice fish, Ed!

Did you coax that brown into taking a dry? If so, even better. I've had more luck getting those bigger fish to go for nymphs.

Here's one from the Beaverkill last week, when we had a couple of cool mornings.

Re: Couple of good ones

There are many places to look for information about Euro or tightline nymphing, but I think that one of the best is troutbitten.com. Just look up "mono-rig" on Dom's site. Thanks for the recommendation, Alex. Lots of good reading for me there! Tight-lined some skinny pocket water this morning and t...

Re: Couple of good ones

Narcodog, The beauty of the airlock indicator is that it makes it so easy to change the depth. Loosen the nut, slide the indicator up or down and retighten. If I'm not getting hung up on the bottom every so often, I figure I'm not getting the nymphs down deep enough. Where the flies end up depends o...
