I have some time off comming up after the Holiday which I will be splitting between flintlock season and trout fishing . If the weather is decent I will be doing some fishing in the York county and Lancaster county areas. I may also be willing to travel to the lehigh valley or centeral PA areas for a day. I'm not the most experienced fly fishermen but I have definately put my time in over the past year and could probably put us on some decent fish. If anyone is interested in fishing from the 26th - 1st let me know!

Sure Im also a relative newbie to fly fishing in York County. Im good to go for the 27th or 28th probably. I fly fished NW Jersey as a teen then gave it up when I joined the Navy. Started fly fishing for O'io (bonefish) in Hawaii and started fly fishing Codorus and Muddy this fall. Look forward to meeting and wetting a line

Unfortunately, I am still recovering from two torn Achillis Tendons and would slow you down. Walking on dry ground (sidewalks etc.) is just not the same for me yet.....Trying it with waders on, in a slippery creek or river - I don't think I would fair too good.

Hopback...your dealing with real fly fisher people now. Winter fly fishing can bring about some real excitement when hooked up. Some of us are not afraid to get our toes and fingers frozen cold, just for the chance at catching wintering trout, or popping the ice off the flyrod eyelets this time of year.

I couldn't resist the warm weather and snuck out for about an hour today. I decided to try an area I have never fished before in York county on a small stream near the mouth of the Susky. I was able to catch this guy between raindrops!

Very good, congrats. I watch for those times when the temp jumps a little and hit the stream. In your case it was a lot!

I've been a bait fisherman my whole life, but I just got a Redington 9'0", mid flex, 4 wt. rod for Christmas. I've been wanting to start fly fishing for the last 2 years, and I am finally going to get the opportunity. I can't wait to catch my first fish. My friend just took me casting today, and even learning to cast is the most fun I've had in I don't know how long. Best Christmas present ever.

I went on a Cabela's run today to and got a Reddington Pursuit 7' 3wt on sale for $59.99. I wanted to test it out on some Brookies so I ran up to road to Pine Creek for about an hour. This was my first time on a Brookie adventure and the Pursuit handled beautifully. I couldn't have been happier with the results. The nicest Brookie I got absolutely smashed a #14 Royal Wuf.

I will being going out Saturday in York county starting around 10-11am. It should be fairly nice with air temps reaching the upper 40s. I plan on trying a totally new stream to me and it is going to require some hiking and exlporation to get to the location. If that fails to produce I always have a good back up stream in my pocket. PM me if you are interested and I can give you the details and where to meet up.
