Re: Fishing

Swimmers now on the Gunpowder? My favorite was always the freaking canoers on that tight little stream. I took a peak at Theaux's website the other day and see the flows are down to I think 37 cfs. Reminds me of the good old days. In later years I didn't fish it but once or twice a year, but the lar...

Re: Hi-Viz winging material availability?

I don't know where you hail from, but one of the guys affiliated with the Catskill Fly Fishing Center had some old packs of Hi Viz at the Art of Angling Show there last November.

Re: Genesee New York State Fishing Contest

Assinica's and another strain were the fish Wright raised and stocked. I believe Valla's mentor/professor (or perhaps a brother?) is working with Assinica's in the Adirondacks. Seems he talked about it at a museum show, Art of The Angler I think at the Wulff gallery last fall/winter. If you hunt dow...

Re: Fly shows

I was just told the CFFCM is considering having a scaled down Summerfest. I would love top go but do not dare. As much fun as I have there, you literally are taking your life in your hands. Look at California, etc. Just because we are tired of this doesn't mean we can ignore it and pretend that noth...

Re: Hi-Viz winging material availability?

The commonly available spooled Antron yarn in white was actually fluorescent white, though I cannot say if that is still the case. You may find out from one of the many shops that carry it.

Re: Fly shows
