When I awoke, I was standing on the stream bank with a 3wt in my hand and something shaking the end of the line. Realizing it was a fish, I land the beautiful ten inch brown trout. I kneel down to release her back into the water and watch the amber gem swim away.Read More Once in a Lifetime
This past week KG and I spent an evening with our old friends at the Upper St Clair Fly Fishing Club in Pittsburgh’s south hills. We chatted with them about soft hackles, streamers and some of our favorite blue lines in western Maryland. For the guys that were there and for those who couldn’t be […]Read More Hanging with the guys from Upper St Clair Fly Fishing Club

Before I tell you more about mine and KG’s time on the Delaware, I first need to tell you about something really cool going on not far from my house. What more can you ask for in your back yard, or near enough to, than a brookie stream? About a month ago I learned of […]Read More Backyard Brookies?
We got on I80 in Bellefonte and made quick time east to pick up I81 north. Once off of I81 we took a myriad of back roads overland to West Branch Angler just outside Hancock, NY.

It’s that time of year folks, the snow is gone and the bugs are going to begin popping. For the ones that have followed us from day one you know we have a thing for chasing after wild fish. Although after a long winter we need to get a little crazy to fill that void of not fishing. This […]Read More HAM BONE
This is the time of year when most Fly Fishers are going crazy from cabin fever. I have to admit I fall under this group, but we have to remember there can be a lot done before you hit the water. Being prepared and having your gear ready to go may give you a good start […]Read More Are you Ready????
My god, life gets in the way, and the weather has sucked. It has been a long hard winter, streams have been frozen solid in the negative unholy temperatures. That’s lead to virtually zero fishing…and very few posts on here. I haven’t even had much time behind the vice…that’s about to change. About a month […]Read More A Bug Chucker’s Lounge
