Guide  extraordinaire John Kopy had a free day so we took a trip with him down the Salmon River. With the estuary not frozen we were able to float through the Douglaston Salmon Run. It was an amazing day with a ton of smiles all around. We caught quite a few fish and lost some nice ones as well. We passed up one pool, where we didn’t catch ONE and saw at least TWENTY… we stink This was the last trip to Pulaski New York before the fly fishing shows, but it was the most fun one yet of the year to date. One of the steelhead was over the 15 pound mark. Great day with an awesome...

As you all know my aunt is not doing well at all. It’s quite stressful at times, but I have still gotten out for a few hours here and there over the past few weeks. I was looking through my pictures and found some steelhead that have never made it to the blog. The last trip up there with Bob and his son Mike was spectacular. We hammered them on indicators and egg representations. It was steelhead crazy! The Salmon River in Pulaski, New York was taken over by three weirdos It was a great time and the photos made me smile, it’s what fishing is all about… fun. It allows you to escape from all of your problems for a little while. These are not even all of the pictures!!!! IT was a great time and made me forget about my aunt for a...

I could not get up until 9:30, so after hitting up Fat Nancy’s in Pulaski, New York for some supplies, I was on the river by two. The crowds were VERY light so we had our choice of spots. We all did excellent. The Salmon River did not disappoint! We did very well with switch and Spey rods with indicators and egg patterns. We had some fresher steelhead in the mix along with some older “holding” fish. Who cares what they look like when you are having fun with two great...

I got out on New Years Day to a small limestone stream in eastern Pennsylvania. The water was slightly high, but the fishing was decent. I fished a dry fly with two dropper nymphs. The trout were all wild brown trout from 6 to 12 inches. It was not a bad start to a New Year! From the pictures that you will see from the past two weeks you’ll see that it’s been really good so...

….you have Umpqua Shimizaki dry fly shake in you bathroom. Dry fly Floatant in with the toothbrushes, shaver, and the other toiletries looks a little weird but it means that you are really hardcore 😉 Or maybe it means that I can’t wait to cast dries to rising fish???

I made another journey up to Pulaski, New York as the steelhead bug has bitten me hard this year.

We have doing great using egg patterns fished under strike indicators using spey and switch rods. Here are are you a “few” fish for your enjoyment...
