  1. Mr. W. was a great guy. Camped there years ago when I landed my first big trout. Great times in that campground. I miss it.
  2. Very nice. Been looking at your ties on Instagram.
  3. Landed a decent rainbow last year on a streamer among the Islands, cream colored Mike Schmidt variation.
  4. Wow. Just read this on the Orvis site today, did not know it was on NFOW. Great story.
  5. Great narrative. Trying to get a coworker to come down and throw baits. He might.
  6. I've purchased all my arctic fox tail pieces form Waters West in WA state, best dyed, best quality, reasonably priced. And, I'm not a tier/spokesman for them. Here's the link:] http://waterswest.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=28_282_30
  7. Jumped back up 458 cfs at Montauk. How does Sunday look to you Gavin? Heading down to give it a try again.
  8. Been hoping for that too. Looks like they're too far east and south. 11 Pt. maybe?
  9. Glad you had success on the trip. Pat's RL rocks when they're keying on it.
  10. You have to leave a lot of room for the rabbit/collar/head on the D&D. I use crosscut rabbit. I also use longer hooks, TMC 5263. Haven't tied any this year on the jig hooks yet. It's hard to get all the stuff on the front hook--flash, palmer chenille, rattle, flanks, flash, rabbit....then the deer hair.
  11. 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.
  12. Wow. That's a great fish, and kudos for the D&D. It's a tough tie. Hopefully I'll land one with a D&D on Sunday. Nice work!
  13. Went to the Current, did fairly well. Noticed the cfs dropped a lot. I'll be there some time.
