Warmwater Fly Fishing Is Warming Up
Hadn't checked the neighborhood ponds in about a month, so I snuck out for an hour or so on Sunday. Happy to report the fish seem to be waking up from their winter slumber.

The bigger ones appear to be on the move too. I had a really nice sized largemouth come up to smash a fly on the fall...but it got me hung up in the dense weeds lining the bank. I had to break it off, I was using a tenkara rod and I didn't want to horse the fish out of the thick tangle of ...

Proposed Changes to Pennsylvania's Delayed Harvest (DHALO) Regulations
...I stumbled upon several people voicing their displeasure about some potential changes to the PA Fish & Boat Commission's Delayed Harvest Artificial Lures Only (DHALO) regulations for 2016...

I'm headed back up to Pennsylvania toward the end of March. I'm going to try to get some trout fishing in, even though many streams are "closed" for the month for stocking. (I fish some wild trout streams that are not impacted by the closure). Pennsylvania has some confusing rules when it comes ...

Fly Fishing The Florida Shad Run
I lived in Philadelphia for 35 years, and outside of one aborted attempt, I never tried to go shad fishing. Not once. Many do, and look forward to the annual event, to the point that there is even a Shadfest in not-too-distant New Hope (PA) & Lambertville (NJ) that celebrates the rite of spring...

The Top Selling Fly Fishing Item On Amazon.com
I never really thought to use Amazon to acquire fly fishing gear besides maybe books...you know the mantra, "support your local fly shop"...but I was curious to see what they offered.

#flyfishing   #ecommerce   #amazonprime  
I'm an Amazon.com junkie. My wife signed our family up for Amazon Prime a year or two ago and I just haven't looked back since. Honestly, it's just so much easier to have something show up at your door in 2 days then drive wherever to find whatever. Every single Christmas present I bought for ...

The Paradox of the Fragile Trout... http://goo.gl/fb/578aXZ #flyfishing #conservation #oddsnends
In concept, this all sounds good to me. I'm on board. I already use barbless hooks and make sure to wet a hand first when handling fish in an effort to protect the slime coat. Plus, anyone that's fished with me knows that the fish I do photograph sit in my net in the water until I'm ready to ...

Is The Goo The Poo? So Many UV Resins To Choose From
One commodity I haven't acquired to date, but am kinda intrigued by is UV resin...you know, the epoxy-like stuff that gets hard really fast (without help from special pills) when you shine a special flashlight on it. I'd like to get my hands on some, especially since I'm starting to tinker with saltwater flies, but I'm not sure where to sink my $20 or $30 (before UV flashlight, of course).

#flyfishing   #flytying   #UVresin  
I really don't care for fly tying. I don't do a ton of it, but there are a handful of patterns that I've become pretty competent at lashing together, and have become the core of my fly box. Tying really is somewhat of a necessary evil...sure I could buy flies, but I've accumulated so many hooks, ...

Tenkara Rod Co. / Backcountry.com Goat Tenkara Kit
Appears the guys over at the +Tenkara Rod Co have partnered with +Backcountry.com on a special make up (SMU) tenkara rod kit called the Goat. 

#tenkara   #gear   #flyfishing   #retail   #goat  
Appears the guys over at the Tenkara Rod Co. have partnered with Backcountry.com on a special make up (SMU) tenkara rod kit called the Goat. Maybe this isn't a new revelation, as I don't frequent Backcountry.com all that often, I just happened to see it there last night and I don't recall ...

Tenkara Tuesday - Big Rods & Saltwater Tenkara #flyfishing #florida #tenkaratuesday http://ow.ly/INHEr
I receive a lot of emails asking me for a recommendation on which tenkara rod one should use to target saltwater fish. I think the assumption is that since I live in Florida, I use tenkara tackle on larger "Florida" species like redfish, snook, speckled trout, cobia...who knows, maybe even jacks ...

Silence Is Golden...False Albacore On The Fly http://ow.ly/I8VVZ #flyfishing #video
Due to lack of original content, here's a video I'm lazily embedding off of Vimeo. It's fly fishing for false albacore by New England on the Fly. Who knows...maybe I even beat Moldy Chum to posting this video...because it seems like two thirds of their posts these days are Vimeo videos.

Tenkara Tuesday - Jersey Natives
The Winter 2015 issue contains all of the usual conservation content you'd expect to be in a magazine published by TU, but the article entitled "Jersey Natives" really caught my eye.

Story
Tagline
...is most likely a waste of your time.
Introduction
While mainly about trout fishing in Pennsylvania, don't be surprised to see other fishing musings reeled in from across the web, some logic dropping on pop-culture past & present, and most importantly updates on my daughter Lilly for the fam-at-large.

This is an environment for equal-opportunity angling, so lure chuckers, bait dunkers, tenkara tossers, and fly slingers are all welcome. Get over your stereotypes, fishing is supposed to be fun!
