Short Streamer Report

Recommended Posts

Dang. I can't make it down there for a couple weeks yet and you are not helping me become more patient.

Weren't we writing that river a eulogy a couple weeks ago? Fishermen are weird.

Nice olive color scheme on the D&D. Had a nice brown charge a white/grey/silver combo last Sunday, He just butted the streamer and left. Had another flash the same pattern thru a riffle. That was it for the streamer action. Landed some decent 'bows and browns on various nymphs. Decent day. Glad some rain is coming.

I don't know about a eulogy, but definitely a great discussion about stream ecology and trout.

Nice slabs, fellas.

I enjoyed that conversation too.

You will admit that fisherman tend to overblow things every once in awhile, and I was poking fun at that. One time I posted a fishing report basically stating that an entire (long) stretch of the Current was no good and it was because it needed to be managed differently. Based on one mediocre trip. And I did well the next time and promptly forgot about it. It's how (many of us) are wired.

So I'm not singling you out if that's what it sounded like.

Yes, I'd agree. In addition to overblowing things, I think we also tend to get overindulged.

You must too admit though, that there's nothing wrong with wanting to make a great thing better.

Your thoughts.

After talking to people that have fished the Current for 30+ years, what anglers have posted on here thought out the years and my experience.

If I have to use just one (major) color for a big streamer to fish on the Current, it would be a Dark Olive.

What do you all think?

Later,

Most certainly not. If anything, we just have slightly different views of how that happens .

Ok, so I'm impressed. When you guys are talking Current what part are you referring to?

Going to hit Montauk next week and love stripping Cracklebacks and Wooly's make me happy happy happy.
