I have a very good friend that lives in your area, If you're up for a very passionate fly fisherman, funeral home owner I can hook you up. I hope you drink just a little. LOL. He is a great guy and one of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. If you want to meet him ahead of of time come to the Somerset NJ show. He lives in Mount Joy. I'll be at the show Saturday. I'll have a green Team Youth USA shirt on. Just look for the old lady next to the tall thin 6'4" kid.

Wetnet, really wish I could be at the show this saturday but unfortunately I have to work...booo! However, I wouldn't mind meetin' your buddy. And yes, I've been known to drink rum from time to time. Does he post here? Wow! Your son is 6' 4. You'd think the fish would spot him coming before he reaches the water.lol In fly fishing I have a natural advantage being as stubby as I am. No matter where I am, I keep a low profile. Even on high ground! Seriously, my family is always telling me that I'm too introverted and I need to try and meet new people.. so I'd like to meet the funeral home guy...do we get to take the hearse to the creek?

I think he refrains from drawing attention with the hearse. People might think there's been a fish kill. He is a really a great guy and just loves sailing line. And no you don't have to be a drinker to fish with him, that's not what he's about. He's all about the fishing and enjoying the moment! Heck I just have fun watching him fish. I'll ask him if he has some free time to sneak away. People chose the worst times to die.

One day I was fishing the perkie near my house for smallies. I tried streamers, drifting big nymphs...nothing. They weren't hitting the surface but figured what the heck I'll try a damsel dry fly and caught a bunch. Don't know why?? Although, I am not a real smallie fly fisherman. I only do it a couple times a year. It sure was a lot of fun. Maybe I'll dedicate some more time to it this year!

I've never fished a dry fly when going for smallies. However, one of the most successful ways I've found to fish for them on top is to dead drift a popper or a slider. It's been my experience that you tend to catch bigger smallies if you drift it rather than "popping" or "sliding"(?) it.
