Happy New Year

Post by Vance »

To everyone, A very Happy and Healthy new year. May all your troubles be small and all of your trout large. Remember catch and release for this year. Maybe I will meet you all on the B’kill this year. Again Happy New Year, Bill the mailman

Back to you, Bill...

And here's a New Year's Day shot of Mother's Pool, on Esopus Creek, from almost two decades ago now--- 2002...

Ray Smith's mother used to fish here all the time, hence the name... and Larry Decker caught Old Bess--- a 9 1/2 pound brown on a minnow here on 4/29/55 on a minnow, using a Jim Payne cane rod....

And using an automatic reel!--the creel looks a little small in relation to Old Bess. LOL.

Happy New Year, guys!
