I've fished the Swift River that runs through the village there (not to be confused with the Swift on the Kancamagus) in other years with some luck; the Bearcamp is near there too, but I think both...

Attractant Oils

Does anyone actually use this stuff on their flies? (That's a rhetorical question, I don't imagine it would be admitted.) Seems to me like the next step down the slippery slope toward bait-fishing. A...

I guess what I've been practicing with is the French method, where I keep the nymph moving downstream rather than let it tumble. The only issue I've had is making sure I keep the fly deep enough. I...

Dead-drifting Techniques

As I understand it, the idea of dead-drifting is solely to prevent the fly line from inducing drag on the fly so the latter doesn't move unnaturally in the water. With nymphing, the high-sticking...

I would tell you but then I'd have to shoot you (or my fishing buddies would shoot me.) Hint: read my reports, there's some salmo trutta in there somewhere :).

I got in trouble Saturday because I was letting it dangle in the current on its tether and forgot about it. The holster came apart a while ago, so now when the staff is folded I keep it together with...

All Good Things . . .

. . . must come to an end, I guess. I've been using a basic White River Fly Shop folding aluminum wading staff for the past 5 or 6 years. The thing has been bullet-proof, with a suprisingly rugged...

I was at Home Depot last year and at the check-out counter I saw some coiled clip-on lanyards (they look like old-fashioned telephone cords). I replaced all of my retractors with them, one each for...

Felt Soles in VT?

Anyone else heard that there's a "grass-roots" movement afoot in Vermont to reinstate use of felt-soled wading boots? The argument seems to be that didymo has been present in VT rivers for 100 years,...

I once went into the Connecticut below Murphy Dam at fairly high flow, with my wader belt cinched tight as always. Never got a drop inside, but then I was so scared I almost walked (well, crawled) on...

Chuck-and-duck was how I learned, but with shot on the tippet it doesn't pick up all that well. I still use it, though, when I don't need much distance. Something about "using the resistance of the...

Thinking a bit more about upstream nymphing and strike indicators. Been reading Rich Osthoff's book, Active Nymphing and he talks about "moving the nymph" instead of just dead-drifting. I was...

Wild brook trout. I don't think I even saw a stocked trout until the early '70s, since the only trout fishing I did before I returned from military service in Germany in 1971 was in northern New...

Good observation. I was fishing today without an indicator because I was able to see exactly what the line was doing, and catching fish. I can see that on bigger water with longer casts where you...

No, just the ones I managed to catch from shore in the Connecticut, quite a few years ago now. I know they grow a lot larger. We should do a bit better this year when we get the bass boat out on the...

Thanks, I didn't think of that, and I do have some of that tape. Will have to see if I can do it without the tape bunching up.

Nutless 3WT

My inexpensive 3wt TFO rod doesn't have a locking nut on the reel seat, and I noticed that the single nut backs off while I'm fishing. I was trying to think of the best way to stop that (other than...
