Exactly when did I become the PAFF kick ball?


You ought to brand that - then you can sell tee-shirts, hats, socks, waders, vests - the list goes on. You can even start a PAFF kick ball league. Figure it's great way to wind down after a day of fishing.

By the way, I think Becker can use a pointer or two (or three or four) on fishing smaller water. Any takers?

Get some size 22 and 24 trico duns and spinners if he has them. Also get some size 18 black ants. Then some of those searcher nymphs I told you about. size 12 to 16 should be perfect.

I have no problems fishing creeks the size of the LL or Valley. It is those dumb trickles with 4 inch brookies that I don't care for.

For those that don't realize what is going on with this....

Some of us are good fishing buddies. We have fun here, but the snide comments are always just friendly ribbing. Mostly, we're just re-hashing things that have happened on past excursions - sometimes with a twist, just to rub it in. It's all in good fun.

We especially like to pick on da Fox. We do this because we actually like him, believe it or not.

Moment of weakness>>>>> Truth is, Fox is about the most fun person you will ever fish with. He's a highly skilled angler, and hasn't been a newbie since Nixon was president.

When I asked him to get involved with the Newbie events, it was with the knowledge that he had so much to share, and was taught by the same mentor that taught me so much. It's a way we can honor our mentor, as he was one of the few people that believed strongly in helping others back in the day. Way back, people were really tight lipped about skills they had to learn the hard way. There was no internet back then.

It's not so much like "paying it forward", as it is just paying it back. We hope you all will do the same....

OK, enough being nice to the Fox. Gotta keep him on his toes, 'ya know.

Well in fairness, it's not like I don't ask for it! I can dish it out too but H-A is right, it is all in good fun. It's sorta like, if we's pickin on ya, we's likes ya!

For anyone that's on the fence about joining us because you think you may too much of a newbie or not newbie enough, please join us. We really do enjoy helping, sure we're gonna bust your balls but that's half the fun. Maybe a testimonail from some of our current newbies might help persuade some you. Also, if you've been "lurking", sign up and join us. The knowledge pool you will meet Saturday would be tough to duplicate and the price is right just bring something for the picnic! Who knows you could even hook into a nice fish and H-A will surely be there to preserve it for posterity on disk!

Come on now, I don't really fish trickles. Maybe I'll take you to a couple of places I go and you'll see the water isn't all that small and the fish aren't that small either. Sorry if I do prefer brookies over browns. Not that I don't like browns, just brookies are prettier and lots of fun.

I've never had success with these flies on the LL. What would you suggest in so far as tippet size / leader length there?

Gee, this is really tempting me to see if I could get a day off and make a trip. Don't know how much I could contribute, though, IF I could get the time off.....

Dave, you are kidding right? You could contribute more knowledge than all of us put together. (Minus Chaz, of course ) It would be a real treat if you could join us and lend a hand with these newbies!!!!!!!!

This is funny. One of the most knowledgeable flyfisherman in Pennsylvania (and beyond), and you don't know how much you can contribute.

Don't make me kick you on the good leg! Just limp on down and play with your friends.

Chaz - I agree with you, but it depends on what hook you're talking about. The old "standard" - the Mustad 94840 is the perfect length (sz 24). The gap stinks on that hook though. If guys are buying tricos, they're likely tied on cheap hooks, and the size might be wrong. If they're tied on Tiemco 100/101's, the shank length is longer than the Mustads. You gotta use a sz 26 to get the same length as a Mustad sz 24. All hooks are NOT created equally, unfortunately.

Fox - Try tying up some of those cdc tricos on Tiemco 2488's in a sz 22. The wide gap will help you land fish (and trees). The 2488 is a shorter shanked hook, so a sz 22 works perfectly.
