re: Who's tying now

I tie a LOT of parachute type patterns. Klinkhamer types are my favorite (my avatar). Parachutes seem to be the best of multiple worlds for fishing either an emerger, cripple, spinner, or dry fly...

re: Who's Tying

Already filled one of those big plastic compartment boxes with trout flies, a couple other smaller fly boxes, and did a few Steelhead patterns as well. I haven't done so much tying in many years,...

re: Vasques

They were Vasques Clarion GTX model I think. Not sure if still made, but they were great boots. Would've lasted much longer if my pup, Abbie, hadn't chewed the soles off!:D

I had a pair of Merrell's that almost got me killed on Giant a couple decades ago. I hope they changed the rubber they used for their soles since then. They wouldn't grip for anything it seemed...

re: WCC in shambles

That section by Trenton Falls bridge was altered heavily years before Irene hit in 2011 even. Used to make a nice curve to the right going downstream with a nice deep hole where I used to catch a LOT...

Jabe Pond Rd

Was in pretty decent shape on Sunday with some erosion as expected with all the rain we've had, but easily navigable in my Forester. Found a Honda Fit that drove up there with a kayak on it too, so...

Stillwater

Don't recall there being any outhouses, or even 'thunder boxes', on any of these sites. I did find where someone left a bucket with a toilet seat on it out behind my site, but I don't believe there...

Cheney

I drive my Forester down a few times each year and kayak fish the pond. Went twice this year. Just go slow, it's not bad. The road into Crane Pond near Schroon is much worse. Leanto was more...
