  1. Live From The Water 2018 Edition!

    i will be headed out shortly,looking for browns or brookies with the fly rod. Just have to go back to the creek after having a great day earlier this week.
  2. New to fly tying

    You are on the rigjt track AT. Keep tying a bunch of the same flies so you get those particular skills mastered,then do a different one. I switched too much in my early days. And trout do eat all sorts of things,i had one eat my strike indicator once,not my fly. I kept yelling,not that!!!
  3. great mid day outing on schenevus creek

    Grampy,you are so right. The creek does hold some monsters. I saw pictures of two browns some friends caught last fall,they were both well over 20 inches and fat.
  4. great mid day outing on schenevus creek

    culver,i have not had much luck with that fly before. But it sure worked that day...
  5. I had some time to go fishing around noon yesterday and wasn't convinced it was a good time. When i got to my parking spot i saw a few rises upstream from the bridge. Maybe not so bad after all. I suited up and got close. The fish were feeding on something beneath the surface,as there was no obvious hatch on. I used a dry as an indicator and put an emerger as a dropper. The fish didnt like my first choice,but when i switched to a hares ear nymph they started hitting. I caught a bunch without having to move at all. It was great!

    Couple hundred years ago that is what people cooked over,open fire with a hole in the gable for the smoke to exit.

    I shot a little buck,he had lost one spike and was in the brush. Not ideal,but he will be tender. Then went for a still hunt and now I am laying down waiting for some bedded does to get up so I can shoot one. Hopefully soon....

    I will have to go out tomorrow. I only bagged a buck and a doe and three deer are a years worth of meat for me,four are even better. I buy no meat in the grocery store. Hopefully i can connect,it has been proven difficult this last week.

    Get your azz up!!!
  11. Live From The Woods 2017 edition!

    I am going out tomorrow for sure... Went for a stroll this afternoon and spooked some deer,got down on one knee quickly and there was a spike that had no idea why everyone scattered,but he went into lightspeed mode. Only thing was he was coming straight at me. Too fast for a shot,but he passed me close enough for spear work. Made me think of moog for some reason,one of his arrows would have worked. I could have stabbed that spike. Next time maybe...

  13. Live From The Woods 2017 edition!

    Was out yesterday with two friends,one shot an 5 point buck,4 on the left and only a brow tine on the right,the rest broke off. Weighed inun at 145 #. Then we did a little drive in the afternoon and the other friend got a nice doe. I just saw tails. I am not going out today or tomorrow,but will try hard on Friday and the weekend.

    Thanks mohican,i am headed out again. We got maybe 3 inches overnight,fresh tracking snow. I am going to try to fill a doe tag today,but won't be upset ig a decent buck comes along.
  15. Their back...

    And here I thought i stopped playing in the sandbox a long time ago. Maybe not...
