BladeRunner I love to fly fish in our creeks, bayous, and farm ponds. Never have been rainbow trout fishing but I have always wanted to.

New Jersey Fly Fisherman Here

Attachment 35066

Caught this beautiful little Rainbow back in November. Spend most of my time on the Pequest River or South Branch of the Raritan. I'm tying up a few flys right now, while waiting for warmer weather. Nothing beats heading out early in the morning in my Jeep to do some casting. Best of luck to everyone

Rangluh That last picture's great. He ate that big fish and then he decided on a snaller pirtion on top of his main meal.

Chef Redfish are a blast along with bonefish in the saline. Mostly caught on crazy charlies and clouser minnows. Pyramid lake for monsters for sure sight casting on ladders

it's a sinking bug, so it is strip wait, strip wait and the current does a good job of moving the bug too. It gets pretty intense sometimes...Trout (specks) are ferocious!
01-12-2010 03:48 PM
Rangluh Yep, spottails, red drum, redfish, all the same. I've just thrown crab patterns at tailers a couple times. I wish I lived closer to the coast. I love catching me some flounder, trout, and spottails.

JIMBOX Nice fish/kids/Rubi-time

They say the fly fisherman do pretty good in Pyramid lake, NV-weather/temp/wind!

I've got an old 5 pc Fenwick, but I haven't used it for 30 years-spin casting with lures now!!

If you ever want to try Pyramid (indian country) let me know I've got some neat spots on the East side-(special permit), I'm either in Ca or Nv, so I'm not allways in Nv, but I keep my Rubitrailer/fishing gear/camping gear/firearms corraled there

In Cocoa Beach, FL, I've hooked up with a few using crab pattern. I haven't tied one yet (I purchased the ones I was using.) but this one looks promising. I only had a 6W with me, but it was fun.

RW, I am sure he means redfish... we call them spottails occasionally.

That is a nice crab. I have used the "gold" spoon pattern from our local shop but the best flies I have used was a shrimp pattern, at night! Seems to crush both trout and reds!

birdhunter Wooly anytime
hunt or fish
I fished the beaverkill for a week must
be 14-15 years ago but I was fishing for food
not sport
We also fish the spring steelie runs off lake michigan
I start in the root river and move to the northern rivers
as they warm up

Chef love your area, nice male brown
We mostly fish cow pasture or very small
tight creeks lots of brush.

RedWrangler Chef, Nice Fish and nice looking rig.

Tight lines!!!

RedWrangler WoolyBugger, I envy you. As noted, down here it's all warm water species in the Delaware. I've floated the west branch and main stem from Ball's Eddy to Trenton. It took us 10 days, but we weren't pushing. It's a great river all the way. The areas with the canoe/tube liveries get a little nuts on weekends, but the fishing is great top to bottom. Got any advice for a novice fly caster on what and where to throw up there?
01-10-2010 12:13 PM
WoolyBugger That's one nice brown birdhunter! I might have to travel to Southern Wis and test my skills.
01-10-2010 11:59 AM
flight risk Down here on the Charleston, SC coast, I occasionally sling for trout and redfish! But, I am a spinning reel guy so the 7wt sits most of the time.

birdhunter Southern Wis Brown Trout
creek caught 28" 8 lbs
Sorry for bad pic it was the
last on a roll and double exposed
I was lucky to have anything show-up

WoolyBugger Looking past the JK through the tree line is the upper stretch of the Delaware River on which I reside. It's a world class tailwater trout fishery fed by
Cannonsville and Pepacton reservoirs via the West Branch and East Branch, both wonderful trout tributaries in the own right. I'm also fortunate to be near the historic Beaverkill, Willowemoc, and Neversink rivers which offer a different blend of trout fishing. I often wade but enjoy floating the main stem of the Delaware River for native browns and rainbows. While winter wains I spend my time tying flies, chasing winter steelhead on the Salmon River, and some occasional ice fishing. This is a wonderful region for a flyrod ........ tight lines!

RedWrangler I do some flycasting, but I spend more time throwing jigs at smallmouth and stripers here in the Delaware river. On a good day, you'll get 15+ per hour. Every now and then I'll also get a walleye, a channel cat, white perch, sunny, or chub. In the spring we get a three fish run, herring, shad and striper. This usually happens from late March through May. There are year round stripers, but the run brings in big cows from the salt water downstream.

If I travel a hundred miles up river, there is some of the best trout water in the east, and they'll take dries, nymphs, emergers and terrestrials in most of the spring and fall months, but in summer you have to get out with the dawn or dusk, and the feeding window is brief because of the temperature. There are other small trout waters around, but compared to the streams out west, fly fishing here is much less productive. On a good day in Montana or Wyoming, you can catch trout nonstop. They seem to stay active from dawn to dusk.

Jeep + Feathers = Fly Fishing

Just wondering how many of you Jeep owners sling tiny curved barbless hooks with feathers on them at fish. Any fly fishers out there? If so I'm in Arizona and when given the opportunity to toss flies at scales I can usually be seen somewhere in Arizona or Mexico on the fly.
