Fly Fishermen


Beaverkill

Any pocket water on the South Branch of the Raritan I enjoy fishing. Nothing like hooking into a big rainbow. Also the west branch of the Delaware is always great hooking into big browns. Wish I wasn't so central in the state making most trout streams a half hour + from my house. Wish I could get out everyday, maybe some day I will be able too!

I prefer trout fishing.. Dry Fly fishing is my favorite game and I consider the Beaverkill and East Branch of the Delaware my home waters even though I live on the Musconetcong River...

 

I have yet to fish the beaver kill or the willowemoc but I plan to this spring being that my cabin is right down the road from the 2 rivers.

Hey Dan. You know I'm a trout guy, both NJ and upper Delaware, but I also love the salt. Big bass, blues and Albies on the fly are a blast. And I grew up warmwater bass and panfish fishing with the fly rod in addition to trout. I do most of my NJ trout fishing on the SBR and Musky with some time spent on the Flat Brook, Peqeust, and others, but working on the Musconetcong River for TU keeps my focus on that river over the others. When I have some spare time, it's the West Branch of the D for me for big, wild browns and bows.

I start and end my fishing season fly fishing for trout. mostly KLG and Point Mt. This year I'm going to put some time in to fly fishing for bass and pike when it warms up. I just got a new Hobie Outback kayak and can't wait to get out!

I fly fish if you want to call it that. I pretty much tie on a fly and let it drift down small streams. I have no idea what fly to use or why,hell I don't even know what the flies names are. No idea when to use a dry or a wet fly,I'm not even sure if I know the difference. However,I've caught fish and it's fun,so it is what it is.There is a guy that is a guide for Shannons that was supposed to take me, but we never end up getting together.

fly fishing can be as complex or as simple as you want to make it. as long as the end result is having a good time you win. I have 5 types of flies in my box for trout. if I can't get it done with them better luck next time.

Was that me, DBuck? If so, you can PM me here and we can work out a date in spring when fishing is not as tough as it is now. Our specialty is getting newbies all set and gaining much needed confidence so you can catch trout on your own.
