Neeeeaaaaaaaaa (that was my plane leaving New York)

Well, I am back from my trip to New York and most enjoyable it was too if absolutely freezing. It was so cold I think I might have got frost bite on my legs (Claire says this is impossible but I am convinced I am damaged in some way)I picked up a new rod and reel (more on that when the season starts) and gained around a stone in weight.

I think I will point you towards a little site I stumbled across in my travels through the forums. It is a post by a chap who is webmaster of He detailed the fly hatches of the area in which I live and I think is a lovely guide for those people just starting out or for those brushing up (or people who just call em bugs )

Read his post over at

Edit: The link will not work as that part of the forum is invite only. You will have to wait until I convince pale watery to put th econtent on his site. 


It is 22 days to the opening of the trout season.

    Great site you have. Glad you got to visit the colonies. Saw your link on the smallstreams and thought I would have a looksee. Nice to see different parts of the world and how fly fishing is done in your region of the world.

    Thanks Terry 🙂

    Where abouts do you live yourself ?

    East Texas: Longview, TX. About 170 East of Dallas, TX. No trout streams in my immediate area but I can travel 3 hours to Broken Bow, OK and fly fish for Rainbow & Brown Trout in the Lower Mountain Fork River inside Beavers Bend State Park. In fact, I’ll be there this Friday-Sunday to get my fix. And yes, I do believe Fly Fishing is an addiction that I cannot get enough of.

    Keep up the good work.

    Stick around Terry, once the trout season gets going i start to actually make postings of fishing trips which can be………fun 😉

    If you are ever in my neck of the woods make sure you look me up !

    Gald you had a swell time in the good ol u.s. of a ! Alex and i had a cracking session for the grayling on another river while you were away, with fish to just shy of 2lbs, you must try this river when you are available, the potential is huge
