Re: First...

Hi Ed, Can't remember the first trout, my Dad and I used to catch and kill many, using bait. I remember the first trout I caught on a fly very well. Canisteo river, flows through my hometown and gets stocked fairly well. It's generally a put and take fishery until it gets too warm in the summer. I w...

Re: OUT WITH OLD IN WITH ?

Hi Teddy, Glad you got out on the first day of the year. The Cape Cod kettle ponds were always fun to fish, as you never knew what you were going to hook up with. I made my "traditional" New Year's Day outing with my friend Walt. We decided to try a new spot, really only having two options as most o...

Re: Fly Fest 2019

I'm trying to talk a couple of guys into attending and sharing the drive down to Roscoe. Fly Fest is always such a nice event, and always good to see so many great people. Hoping for good weather!

Re: the other chuck = the other trout

Well done, Chuck!

I miss saltwater fly fishing.

Watch out for those Clouser Minnows in that wind...they can knock the stuffing out of you! Whaaaaack!!! Ouch!!!

Enjoy the sunshine and great fishing.

Best,

Tim

Re: Zebra midge

Hi Ed, Late to the party, as usual...all work lately, and not much play. That was a tough day on the water...the day before was one of the very best I'd had there. "You should have been here yesterday", almost as frustrating as the sign at the saloon stating "Free beer tomorrow"! That was a good cou...

Re: The Carrie Stevens Archive

bb, Such a shame. I remember when you started this project. This is just unbelievable. Although it would be normal to name call, politicize, or any number of ungentlemanly responses, it is best to stay the course and let the authorities try to handle it. It's hard not to be disappointed when you hea...

Re: Sally Hansen hard as nails

Hi Ed, I don't get too carried away with "repairing" split jc eyes. As Bill said, sometimes I'll put a dab of Dave's Flexament on the back side, and then let them dry on a piece of waxed paper...sometimes I just tie them in as is. I learned how to glue up the wing components for classic streamers by...

Re: Tedd Ward

Hey, Teddy! The facing Page 98 in Sylvester Nemes' book Soft Hackled Fly Imitations is a full page of pattern photos titled "Flies for Eastern Waters by Tedd Ward". Dressings are listed on pgs 104-106, along with a paragraph on how Mr. Ward designed and fished these flies for Catskill streams. Tom, ...

Re: Muddlers

And Thanksgiving dinner came early for Ed and his family! Speaking of Muddlers, the younger birds and hens have much softer/smaller feathers for winging. I feel they offer a bit more movement in the finished fly. Also easier to tie standard wets with the smaller feathers, such as the March Brown, Mo...
