Hi Charlie,

Welcome to Troutnut. Great bunch of guys here to chat to about fly fishing or bugs. Where do you live in NY? Are you anywhere close to the Delaware River?

hi wbranch, thanks for the welcome. I live about hour and a half north of the Delaware but I've been there a few times. I live in small town called ilion, its the home of Remington arms. I do most of my fishing on the west Canada creek and the black river. both are great trout fishing, mostly browns. the west Canada has a trophy section five or six miles long and I have taken a lot of slammers there. im planning a trip to pa this summer to fish pine creek and hope to make it to big kettle creek for a day or two. how about you, were do you do most of your fishing?

I know a fellow named Artie Loomis who also fishes West Canada Creek and has caught some very nice browns there. I need to make a trip thee someday in 2014. I mostly fish the West Branch of the Delaware as well as the main stem and the East Branch of the Delaware'

I live in PA and just wanted to mention that both Pine Creek and Big Kettle Creek are primarily stocked trout with very little naturally appearing wild fish. Also both warm up quite quickly once the air temperatures start to rise.

Welcome, Charlie!

I was all of 5 years old in '59 so you've got some experience behind you...but its guys like you who encourage 'kids' like me to better themselves.
We're all crazy about fly-fishing, no matter how or when we started though.

tight lines, and keep posting stuff...its all good!

Hey Roguerat...You and I born in 54? Great year. :)

Welcome Charlie...Come on in, the waters fine. :) I think we can handle at least one more once-upon-a-time PA Boy on this site. The place is crawling with them. :)
