Returned there yesterday. Going back today. That makes three days in a row on the Battenkill. Big hook-up yesterday---net not wet.

If think you've seen red--you've not seen anything. Wait until that Willow article comes out....

It's refreshing to see another fly fisher fishing with a spin rod and bait. Striper fishing with minnows?

One of my most memorable fishing outings I was fishing for large brown's on the Escanaba River in the upper peninsula of Michigan. I found some molting crawfish by the bank, hoked one on and BAM!!! There was nothjing subtle about the strike. That 18" brown wanted that crawfish NOW!

Doc I was fishing for sea trout and reds on the incoming tide in Mobbly Bay around Clearwater.The fish set up in this largely unfished metro area on the incoming tide.I was using live shrimp
dead drifted just as if you were nymphing with a fly rod.In fact I was using a Leisenring drift and the takes were quite vigourous.There are some lady fish around and I think they could be caught on a dry fly.I have never heard of dry fly fishing in the salt(I have done it in brackish) but I believe it could be done with a dry stonefly/shrimp pattern for these fish.When hooked they are acrobatic to say the least.
Got to go the Shuttle is taking off in 5 minutes.

It costs approximately $450 million dollars to launch a space shuttle.

Have a good time--you've been a great taxpayer, Tom...so enjoy it ;)
