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...

Re: Couple of good ones

Very nice , what kind of Indy do you like to use? In calmer waters, I’ll use a yarn indicator. In choppier/faster riffles I use the small size (1/2”) airlock. I’ve caught a couple of fish when nymphing without an indicator, but suspect I need to add a lighter weight rod to my arsenal to pull it off...

Re: Couple of good ones

Very nice ! How deep were you fishing the stonefly? 8-) Both fish were hooked at the head of a pool, right where the riffle entered. Cast ahead of that by about 15 feet, let the nymphs bounce down along the bottom. In this case, the riffle isn't that shallow, about knee-deep (and sometimes I hook f...

Couple of good ones

Dropped my son off at his job at 5 pm and headed up Rt 17. Fishing by 6:15 and was lucky enough to land a couple nice browns on nymphs before dark. One took a #8 brown stonefly, the other took a #16 shaggy caddis. Plenty of mayflies around but no rising fish, although I tried sulfur and iso emergers...

Re: May fishing

Closed out the month with a solid Neversink brown. Yesterday evening was the best outing of the year for me in terms of hookups and size of fish, but although there were tons of bugs in the air, the fish were feeding subsurface. This morning, to kick off June, I only managed a 10" brown (but it was ...

Re: Saturday opener

CJ, Thanks for sharing! Sounds like a great opener. I haven't gotten out yet myself. Getting darn itchy, though!
