He may have been completely sincere on both counts, both the fly advice, and the vegetation advice.

You disagree with his opinions on both the fly and the vegetation.

But that's a different question. You represented it as if he was being a jerk. But it's quite possible that you and he simply have different opinions on fly choice and riparian vegetation management.

Send it back. Seriously Mo is York County being attacked with bamboo like I am seeing here in Delco and Chesco?


We have a few groves of bamboo on Muddy. Not in the FFO area though. Its actually a pretty good bank stabilization plant. Not that I encourage it but it is hearty. and it doesnt lose leaves in winter. SO there is that. (shade)

It is also very difficult to eradicate multifloral rose and other invasive pricker bushes. You can cut them back but they come back. You need to remove them by digging out the entire root system. then replant.

So, let me get this straight. To make your fishing experience better you cut streamside brush and you use a chainsaw and machete? Your a wonderful stream steward.

Nick,

I think Fade was using the chainsaw to cut vines hanging from trees as part of a volunteer effort sponsored by VFTU. There is value value in that because they will eventually kill mature trees near streams. Saving a mature tree is much more valuable than the planting new ones. (on the short term) And still you would have to maintain the new plantings.

I don't see any reason why trimming back brush away from the immediate stream side is damaging. Even along streams the root systems carry substantial value whether native or invasive.

Multifloral rose thrives on the woodlot edges. If you are caught in a bramble, back up and go deeper into the woods and you will likely be around it in no time. It doesn't like shade.

Thanks Maurice that is all I wanted to know but it sounds like he is cutting down prickers to protect his waders and not so much vines to help the stream and trees... his words not mine. Fadeaway, last time I check pricker bushes don't bring down trees.

WAIT... so your not chopping prickers and vines to help the stream out? Oh my bad, Fade. You post bull snot and people are going to call you on it.. guess you thought you were being witty?

Ahhhhhhhhhh, nice to see that you can go away for one weekend and nothing changes. Carry on boys.

Fade, why were you clearing brush? Was there a TU work weekend or did you do this on your own?

BTW Fade, I'm sure my brother VFTU member had no idea you fished downstream or he would never have suggested a stoner.

Let's get out soon.

I know VFTU will be planting trees (opposite of Fade) this Saturday 3/16. I met a few members a couple weeks ago and I plan to attend..I don't think this clearing brush idea was a"sponsored event" by VFTU. I can see clearing out a few things but taking a chainsaw there and clearing it is beyond ridiculous.....In fact it may be a violation....should check with DEP/CCCD before you work/alter a HQ/EV watershed.....

Nick,

If you read the beginning of the thread you would have read that him and I volunteered a few hours of our morning clearing vines that attach trees.

We cleaned up some pricker bushes in one spot to get a little easier access to the stream. Like Maurice said, they will be back before spring is over.

It was just a really nice day to be outside all day.

Guys, be nice to Fade. He wields a chainsaw like a ninja, also you can see in the second pic what we were dealing with:

Hey GovtMule,


It wasn't a VFTU even but a Valley Forge Preserve event, we were not cutting tree's we were cutting vines that invade the trees.
