Anyone watch "wild on the fly". I really like that show but it's not realistic for me to ever get to the exotic locations they fish.

I enjoyed TU's show more when Frank was the host. How about the show with Mike Pawleski (spelling). That's also decent.

The TU host, Jed Something, is good but I think he gets a little too "whoa DUDE!, Bro!, Sick!, Swwwweeet!, etc..." at times!

I don't know about you guys, but the LAST thing I want is a fly fishing show about my home waters. It is bad enough we have to fight elbow to elbow with one another at times for good water and a bit of solitude.

I don't need some joker from god knows where making it even harder! I am more than content to watch people fish in places far far away and hopefully learn a trick or two in the process!

Even when I blog about things, I almost never point out where I was fishing. The web or TV for that matter can absolutely torch a perfectly good fishing spot.

....IMHO

And where do you go if you are fishing elbow to elbow? The only place I found it like that was Salmon River, NY or opening day. Other than that the waters are pretty quiet with maybe a few souls around.

I don't know about you fellas but the last thing I want to do is watch someone else catch trout on a TV program. I don't watch them.

Pitt - I don't think you have to worry about it being eblow to elbow on the Mon. Given your outlook, I assume you limit your fishing to Allegheny County then? Or maybe at the most SW PA? Otherwise that'd make you the joker on someone else's home water. I didn't know there was a naturally reproducing population of Snook in SW PA.

Swattie,

I used the term "home waters" loosely. My last two trips to Erie have been nothing short of a CF. Go any weekend on some of our tailwaters and you will find guys stacked up in many of the popular holes. Same goes for many of our spring creeks in central PA.

I fish for all kinds of fish in all kinds of water. My brown lining ventures are for the most part unencumbered by others which is fine by me. Unfortunately, trout and chrome are quite a bit more "crowded" to say the least.

Pitt – Agreed “home waters” can be a bit of a moving target depending on who you ask. For me, I’d define my “home waters” as anything I fish more than twice a year…anything less than that and I’m just a visitor. For me this pretty much is limited to Lebanon, Lancaster, Dauphin, Berks, and maybe the southern part of Schuylkill County. I suppose you could throw in the Michaux SF area too, since it’s close to my inlaws and I fish that area when I’m visiting them. That said there are many areas I travel to and fish one or two times a year (Poconos, NC PA, State College area, Delaware coast)…I enjoy that variety, and try to be respectful that I’m on someone else’s home turf when I’m there. I’ve seen your blog (which is excellent BTW), and could tell you fish for all kinds of fish, all over the place. I think part of what that entails is that if you enjoy that sort of thing…fishing other places, you gotta be okay with guys not from your neck of the woods traveling to fish something new and/or different to them too. Reciprocity. Your first post just kinda struck the wrong chord with me, and after rereading my post now, my response probably wasn’t the most constructive way I could have approached things. My bad for that, and no offense intended.

Back to the TV shows…I wouldn’t be opposed to guys on any of these national shows filming a Brookie expedition in PA. I think that kind of fishing is very rewarding and a foreign concept to a lot of people. A lot of times shows like this will give you a general idea of where they are, but not name the stream, or section of stream in particular. For instance…”the Snake River in Wyoming” or “a small stream in the Pennsylvania mountains” doesn’t tell you a whole heck of a lot in terms of specific locations, but gives you enough to get the general idea of where the kind of fishing being demonstrated can be found. I think most of the viewers of a FF designated show are pretty similar in mindset to the crew of guys you’ll find here…C&R, respect the resource, sportsmanlike, etc. Crowds are crowds…if they’re fishin’ here, they’re not fishin’ somewhere else.

Curtis Fleming annoys the hell out of me. As does Conway Bowman (is his show still even on the air?).

I think the most educational of all of them has to be Tom Rosenbauer's Orvis Guide to Flyfishing show. It's not just huge fish shots the whole time. It's constant teaching.

Thanks.
