Re: What’s up with the Esopus?

northcountryman - Not to sound like a jerk, Given what I know about fishing for Atlantic Salmon would fit behind your eye (absolutely nothing.) But through reading about it over the years, I think you would want to maintain a philosophical attitude about the odds of actually hooking into one on your...

Re: What’s up with the Esopus?

St Froid, Because I live in the Catskills with limited time and resources for travel, heritage water is pretty much all I know. I don't know the Salmon River, but it's certainly on my bucket list. I get the impression that for the most part, it's a fall and winter proposition ? Anything happening th...

Re: What’s up with the Esopus?

I find the Esopus to be too tempermental, to say any single area is fishing well. Depends on when you happen to be there. Sometimes it's ok around there, other times more challenging. Last evening after the tubers went home, I was between the bridges above town and there were Sulfers and Light Cahil...

Re: What’s up with the Esopus?

I can say one thing about the Esopus this year. Water clarity has been much better than most seasons, for that I am thankful. Last week on a rainy afternoon, oddly with no one else around, I had a ball on a well known location, swinging and dead drifting Soft Hackles. Three Brownies around 15' to 17...

Re: Landing net recommendations?

I shopped rubberized C&R nets recently and found the best prioces to be on Frabill and Eagle Claw at $25 and $35 respectively. The down side of those nets is they are heavy compared to the more pricy ones. I heard a funny story about nets some time ago. An older gentleman who said he fished with Art...

Another Head Water Post

A special thanks to Bamboo & Brookies Head Water post. It inspired me to get my old butt and head up in the mountain mist and drizzle today. A wonderful afternoon on one of those secret steams that my son's friend introduced me to. Nothing better than Small fly fishing with a 2Wt fly rod. Sorry no B...
