Fall Fishing Memories & Maintenance

Fall Fishing Memories and Maintenance

Fall fishing brings a close to the fishing season for many of us living in areas where winter is just around the corner. We move the gear bag back into the house for the winter, put the rods back in the closet, clean our waders, dry out our boots, and dream about next spring. Maybe we'll clean up the tying table that has been neglected and collecting dust, getting it ready for the long winter evenings that will have us restocking our fly boxes.

In addition, we should also take a close look at our fly rods, checking tip tops and guides that need to be replaced from either wear or accident. Line friction can wear sharp edges in the guides over time and these edges will cut into expensive fly lines ruining them quickly. A little steel wood or brillo will make worn dirty cork grips look like new and a Pledge wipe can clean and pretty up even the oldest dearest rods in our arsenal.

Fly reels and lines should be carefully examined and cleaned before putting away for winter. Back off the drags, touch any screw heads in the reel foot area with a bit of WD40 and use the Pledge wipe on the reels too. Discard the leaders and prepare to put on fresh next spring.

And thinking about reels, we came across an interesting article in The Fiberglass Manifesto awhile back about reviving old classic fly reels. Talk about bringing new life to an old reel, a classic.
We hope you enjoy it. There may be an old reel in your closet from years passed - maybe you can bring it back to life again too.

Come fish our Home Waters this Fall

There's no place prettier in the fall than the northeast, particularly so on o09 Huge Brown Trout0022ur freestone streams.  Our home stream, Fishing Creek, is heading into fall with excellent water levels and lots of healthy fish.

Terrestrial fishing will stay good until the hard frosts come - along with baetis and cinnamon ants.  It's a beautiful time of year to be on the water.  We still have a few days available for guided fall fishing.  It's a short season and winter is just around the corner.  Treat yourself.  View our Guided Fishing page here and contact us for available dates.

Rods Available - September, Alaska

 

We seldom have rods available this late in the summer for our September Alaska trip. As the photos show, the rainbows are fattened up from a summer of feasting and are in great shape getting ready for winter. The tundra landscape is beautiful, fresh cool mornings, often with fresh snow on the mountains.
