    Fly rod for new guy

    Awesome, good luck with it. You need anything just reach out to me and i will help anyway i can. Shannons will set you up with flies to use now and going forward. They dont just push to sell stuff, they are good people. Some good areas for nymphing and not many guys out this year. Although not a traditional fly I have been murdering stockies on size 12 and 14 rainbow warriors. Do you tie? If not its one of the best parts of the addiction, i tie for trout, steelhead, salmon, largemouth, smallmouth, hybreds, shad and saltwater. So if you enter that realm let me know Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    50 Jersey foods to try before you die

    I would rather eat my wifes cooking too but if i would have to say going elsewhere it would be Uncle Vinnies in Raritan Borough. Simply the best seafood anywhere. Any dish you order is fresh caught and spectacular. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fly rod for new guy

    Yes the clearwater is good, Lamson makes some nice reels also. For NJ trout any reliable reel will do fine but that faster pick up of the large arbor reels help when you get a good one on and want to get line back on the reel to utilize the drag. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Any MMA fans?

    No, tapping out because your arm is about to be broken is a bit differant than saying no mas because your tummy is upset Btw, i watched and was a fan of boxing for years, my favorite fight was Hagler vs Hearns. They both would never say no mas LOL. But i also spent 14 years doing MMA before it became a noted sport. I can hold my own with a good boxer but when you get in with a good MMA fighter its over pretty quick Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fly rod for new guy

    Very solid set up, i have three Clearwaters and they fish like rods that cost twice as much. Last year i picked up a ten foot 7wt for my son. As a relatively new flyfisher he was able to roll cast big indicators with alot of lead with ease, he landed steelhead and kings on that rod with ease. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fly rod for new guy

    The Encounter is a solid starter set up. You can also check Ebay for used Orvis Clearwater, a very good rod that has a lot of feel. I just won a bid two weeks ago for $79 which is a third of the price new. Honestly for nymphing i personally like a 5-6wt overlined one line weight. It will let you roll cast indicators and weight much easier. Do you plan on using the fly rod for bigger rivers as time passes? Possibly some summer smallmouth? If so definitely go up to a 6wt, for nymphing a delicate presentation isn’t really as important as being able to roll cast and mend and 6 is much easier to handle than a 4 IMO. Whatever you choose, get some flys and go have fun Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Two flys and 30+ trout

    Those squirmies sure catch fish, especially in fast water. I no longer fish San Juan worms, squirmies all the way Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
