Quick Trip To Cabela's - No New Rod

I took a quick trip to Cabela’s today. Before any shopping could be done, there was an urgent need for some good ol’ fashioned “health” food.  A buffet was in order! I went to Cabela’s to try and find an 8wt  TFO Clouser and some line. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any in stock.  Looks like […]

Twisted up a few bugs tonight

Did a little work at the fly tying bench tonight.  It was a great way to end a short work week.  Nothing like banging out half a dozen flies to calm the nerves. Tonight I focused on two chenille intensive patterns.  The first, an old standby, the San Juan worm and a new fly (to me) […]

Best 8wt Bass Fly Rod For Under $300

To continue the discussion I was having over on Google Plus with some heavy hitters of the online fly fishing world… After being a good boy for 12 whole months it appears I might have enough Christmas cash (along with change from the couch cushions) to buy a new heavy duty fly rod. In order to keep […]

End Of Year Clearance - Fly Tying Symposium

As we draw 2011 to a close I’m forced to think about all of the things I didn’t get to do this year.  Regrets?  Perhaps. I’m going to do a few quick and dirty rapid fire posts.  Good news is you’ll get some great pictures to look at.  Bad news is there won’t be much […]

Brown Trout On Valley Creek?  No, But I Did Catch This...

So my last trip to Valley Creek for wild Brown Trout was a bit of a strikeout but I did catch something special… Yep, you read that caption right.  I caught this Caddis Larvae on my good old 5 wt rod.  (In his defense he was doing his best to hide in a big clump […]

Functioning Friday -  Sh... On Wheels Edition

Fall is in full swing in Southeastern PA.  The leaves are starting to turn, water temperatures are dropping, and lately it seems the bugs are growing in size…  but before we get to that, have you ever seen one of these? Looks like a sh… show on wheels to me!  If I can’t get a […]

Pennsylvania State Parks - Why Can't I drink?

Why can’t you drink in Pennsylvania state parks or other local PA parks?  I mean, who doesn’t want to sit on the shore and put down a few beers while catching some fish? You’d think the home of Yuengling, America’s oldest brewery would be more progressive in its stance on outdoor drinking.  Right? So what’s the […]
