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.

Fall Fishing at Home & San Huberto

Fall Fishing & Fly Ants

We're gearing up for a month of fall fishing here on Fishing Creek. The stream is in great sha09 fall on Fishing Creek.0033pe thanks to last week's rain, the Insects flying ants BC BECK IMAGE 070004leaves are beginning to turn color, and the fishing is good.  We still have some days available for guiding if you'd like to get away for a day or two.  Fall is our favorite time of year and the season is just too darn short! With fall comes swarms of flying ants and if you're lucky enough to be on the stream when the ants appear you'll enjoy some exceptional fishing – if you have flying ants in your fly box! So do get out and enjoy the season and don't leave home without flying ants!

Simon Gawesworth is in town!

Spey Clinic

As we write this week's blog, Simon Gawesworth is in the second day of his spey casting clinic. After the morning session here on the pond, the group had a great afternoon on the Susquehanna River at Bloomsburg. It was a fun day with the spey master and everyone learned a lot! Today looks like a repeat of yesterday. Thank you Simon.
