Welcome to the forum. That was a very nice walleye (and mighty tasty too).

Well, speaking just for myself, the fishing was poor. I got one rainbow and missed one on Friday evening wading above Hancock but that was it for me. Lots of bugs, mostly #16 gray caddis but the fish weren't on them. Got home late yesterday - some of the crew are still fishing.
Things got off to to a slow start on Sat - blustery winds and rain. When the wind and rain didn't let up, DaveS and I wade fished the West Branch. I had hoped for BWOs or streamer action with the very dark skies and rain but no luck. After lunch, I made a final stop on the main stem several miles downstream from Hancock - the rain had stopped but it was still windy and cold. No surface activity and no hits on a streamer - headed home at about 4pm. Some of the other fellas did go up the East Branch or the upper WB in NY on Saturday. Hopefully they had better luck.

That's a neat walleye by the way and not a very common catch for a fly fisher, esp one that large. It was cooked up, along with some very good venison steaks, on Friday evening. Thanks for the donation.

Thanks. Good to hear that it was enjoyed by the gang.

Can't wait to get back up there to chase that trophy brown.

Not used to seeing so many different bugs hatching on the water.

Need to tie some more dry flys!!!

Thanks for the report. Good to hear that you hooked up. I hope the other guys did well also.

Fly-n-lion,

Welcome. The hatches were actually not that great until Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon things perked up a bit. I'd suggest the book by Paul Weamer and that will greatly assist you in putting together a nice fly box for the rivers.

I'm waiting to have photos forwarded from everybody and then I'll put up a final report.

Dave,

Thanks again for the painting. I'll talk to Coz or Dan from the FUDR to see how they want to handle it. I may just get it framed and in the FUDR raffle for next JAM. Brandon, Josh and DaveS all wanted to get their hands on it.

Krayfish,

Wow, I must have read your mind.... I actually picked up Paul's book yesterday!! Great book. Spent Sunday afternoon at the bench tying a few BWOs and Grey Caddis while I watched those Steelers roll downhill over my Eagles in the last 2 mins to grab the win. (Dryflyguy, I know that 'yous' guys enjoyed that....). It was a good game.

Looking forward to the final report and pictures.

Guys,

Thanks to all who attended. It was yet another great trip. Anything that was lacking from a fishing perspective was more than compensated for with good food and laughter! (Hey whats a little gunfire if no one actually gets shot!)

Thanks to Krayfish, for all his knowledge and sharing of information. And basically keeping the group from missing any takeouts in the dark!

I'll be forwarding pics to Kray, later, so look for his wrap-up.

Dave

ALSO...............


ROSCOE, N.Y.-Theodore Gordon Flyfishers, one of the Catskills' venerable angling clubs, has named Dan Plummer, chairman of Friends of the Upper Delaware River, as recipient of its 2012 Conservation Award.

Plummer, board chairman of FUDR since 2004, was cited for "tireless work on behalf of the Upper Delaware." About 50 people attended the awards dinner on Saturday, Sept. 29, at the Rockland House in Roscoe.

Bert Darrow, president of the Gordon club, said Plummer's commitment, persistence and winning personality have helped forged alliances among a wide and diverse group of conservationists that often had been at odds in the past. "This could not have happened without Dan Plummer," Darrow said. He said the coalition that is emerging has become a powerful voice on behalf of the river system.

Darrow's group is a not-for-profit angling organization that promotes clean rivers and healthy trout populations through conservation, advocacy and education. Founded in Manhattan in the early 1960s, its members were early advocates of catch-and-release fishing. The club is named in honor of Theodore Gordon (1854-1915), a Catskills flyfishing pioneer.

Plummer's group, Friends of the Upper Delaware River, is a non-profit based in the Hancock, N.Y., area that has become a leader in protecting and advocating on behalf of the water, the wildlife and the residents of the region.

Plummer credited FUDR's 11-member board of directors for donating countless hours to the organization and its causes. He said FUDR would continue to work as steward of the river against hydrofracking and in favor of consistent cold-water releases from the New York City-owned reservoirs, a crucial component in safeguarding the unique Upper Delaware ecosystem. He said cooperation between FUDR and like-minded organizations has led to a number of recent conservation successes as the groups have found increased influence as a broader coalition.

Plummer grew up in Elmira, N.Y., and was introduced to fishing and hunting by his mother and father, whom he describes as self-taught naturalists. He has worked for ABC Sports, Ralph Lauren and as a builder. An avid flyfisherman and outdoorsman, he has owned a cabin on the East Branch of the Delaware River since 1990. Plummer and his wife, Shari Sant Plummer, also own a farm near New Kingston, above the Pepacton Reservoir. "There's not a more beautiful place on earth," he said. "We are committed to trying to keep it that way."

Plummer also serves on the board of the Summit Foundation, the Code Blue Foundation and the Wild Salmon Center. His wife is an environmental philanthropist and ocean activist. Sant Plummer is involved with a number of environmental organizations, including Code Blue, Summit, the Sylvia Earle Alliance, Seacology, the International League of Conservation Photographers, the Blue Ocean Film Festival and the World Wildlife Fund.

"Between the two of us, we try to help to keep a watchful eye on the 75 percent of the planet that's wet," Plummer said.

Finally got back home last night.
The big D fished pretty tough for me the 3 days I spent on it. Risers were far and few between.
But I did manage to catch a few trout - along with some fallfish.

Really enjoyed meeting and chatting with everyone. And sharing some great food.

Andy - thanks for organizing this. Your time and effort are greatly appreciated

Fly-n Lion - Nice meeting and fishing with you a bit too. Seeing you catch that nice walleye might just change my dry fly only tactics
