Re: New Fly Shop

Just wanted to thank you all for the kind words. Shop is off to a great start. Still getting stock in and doing renovations little by little. We appreciate all the support. It's been really rewarding to hear people talk about how happy they are to finally have a dedicated shop in the area again. Ple...

Re: Brook trout in the Willow

Now, more to the point... just recently I caught a brook trout in the Esopus, where I normally never do, so your "high water" theory of brookies washing downstream is a good, IMO... ;) Ed My neighbor said he caught a brookie in the Esopus a few weeks ago. I figured he was tipsy. I'll hit you up for...

Re: Stonefly, fishfly?

Re: Some early season, some late season

Wow. You guys are brutal. Just brutal... Well I guess I have to take my hits while learning from the masters. So I stand humbled... but wiser.

Re: The Broken Esopus Creek

From the TU front (and in happy contrast to a comment I made earlier in this thread) all state and local agencies have reached out to us for help. So... we've been invited to the table. It's going to be a long recovery, but I do get the sense that those in power (who are friendly to our cause) WILL ...
