Friday Bacon; Instant Bacon

or Bacon Martyr?

The picture says it all, you decide.

Saturday Quest

Clarks Creek north of Harisburg Pennsylvania is the tailwater of the Harrisburg water supply's reservoir. The pic. below shows said creek in all of the summer time glory it can muster.
It runs cold, it runs small and it runs fishy.

Good luck boys!

Just a little sumpin', sumpin' to put you in the mood...

Huge Steelhead closer to home...

Little Timmy's 9 pound steelhead caught near Altmar.

Where are these fish when we are looking for them?
I notice that he is a big Misfits fan as well...

Possible record steelhead

Nick English caught this fish on the Kispiox River in B.C. on Oct. 18 2008. It measured 45.25 inches and had a girth of 25 inches, according to the weight formula (length x girth(squared)/690) weighed in at 40.75 LBS. I am not sure there are any this size in Pulaski but we can dream. I bet he used the landing glove.

Big Spring, Sat. Feb 14.

After De-Skunking Juno at four in the morning, I decided to hit the waters. I arrived at Big Spring and fished the ditch for about two hours. This is the larger of the two brook trout I took on a Black Woolybugger. Sporadic rises to a few blue wing olives. Tomorrow I plan on hitting Spring Creek with Truck Stop McShaft (aka Stew). Report to follow. Curly out.

Look at this Johno...

Available ON SALE at Ramsey Oudoors, The Simms Mater Vest.

Friday Bacon!

Instead of mayonaise,

Kraft's delicious bacon spread. I bet it is unbelievable on a fresh BLT samich.

River ?

I know that I'm way behind on the curve for this particular readin' of a good book.

Many of the stressful and bothersome questions about why we fish are now mystically answered, to wit;
Who is Eddy and why do we want to see her nekid?
What is a Garden Angel and why is it molesting your shadow?
How do you fish "twinkie style?"

But I still don't know why every fishing vest has a "rod holder loop."

What in the heck is that thing for, to wit?
It is what it is...

This Evening: Battle of the Feeshes!

Tonight, in all their glorious glory, the Arizona Apache Trout will take on the Pennsylvania Brook Trout. Which will bring the big hit, the quick strike and who will be the recipient of the dreaded refusal?

The Cardinals, are of course based in Arizona...

Arizona, of course, has a state fish.
The Arizona state fish is, of course, the lovely and swift Apache Trouts.

The Pitssburgh Steelers are of course based in the blessed and beautiful hills of Western PeeYay. And yes Stew they are a very popular symbol of the organized labor movement.

Indeed, Pennsylvania does also, of course have a state fish...

The Brook Trout is a strong fighter, although not the most selective of feeshes, but it is elegant and beautiful in all its moves.

My apologies for all the "borrowed" images.

All righty then, man your Layzboys!

PeeYay Fly Tyer Wins Prestigious Contest

Courtesy of the Times Leader online edition:
Richard Grencavich, won a one week escape out west on the highly regarded Big Horn River for his first-place finish in an international contest run by Fly Tyer magazine. The requisite flys called for as entry into the contest resulted in a draw. The back-up tie breaker flies c=became the deciding factor in the contest. Richard's intriguing Crayfish Pattern, pictured below, brought home the win for the Conygham, PA native. He had developed this realistic looking pattern to fool the wily smallmouths of the Susquehanna River.

Below photo is the intrepid tyer at his tying station.

The proud fly tyer displays his fine trophy.

Mr. Grencavich, enjoy your time in Montana, a well deserved break from the ol' gas station!
