That was the first fly fisher I ran into in PA when I moved back here. I had weird run-ins with him two days in a row

When I see him I make him talk to me I always ask him how is doing and hows the fishing and usually tell him some stuff in exchange . He hasn't gotten rude with me yet but I have seen him a couple of times .


LOL.....one night I said hi to him and he said rrrrrr....lol then two 13 year old girls walked by and he said "hello Ladies fine night for a walk" right then and there I thought to myself..........this guy is not right!!!!! SICKO.....We all should keep our eye on this perv.

I ran into a similar guy at Big Spring a few times. Its cool if you dont want to talk but at least be nice and say hello when someone says hi.

Just Fish,
I am at Valley fairly often these days and if I see the guy handling the fish 'a lttle too long' I will surely say something .

To get back to the original question about whether to wade or not in Valley; I do both. There are some areas where I cannot get where I need to without stepping in. The key for me is to be very deliberate when in the water. I have caught some larger fish when wading but I will often wait several minutes after I have positioned myself. Here are a couple of Valley fish from a week or two ago. I hope they upload...I take very few pictures and it has been a while since I posted any.

I had a similar incident with the green jeep guy. I asked how the fishing was and he literally yelled at me and told me to get lost. Guy has some serious problems.

Yeah it was unbelievable. The week after I saw him and all he would do is point upstream and downstream to see which was I was working. I guess "hey which way you moving?" is too much interaction for him.

A 2wt is a toy (a very fun toy), and IMO, has no practical use anywhere. If you want to fish it, it'll work, but it's not optimal anywhere.

I like an 8' 4wt on valley. I fish it an awful lot, and the 4wt is always the most effective rod for me. Your mileage may vary.

I agree with Jay, I like my 7.5 4wt on valley

seems that EVERYONE who fishes valley has had a run in with jeep guy, hilarious! I am unfortunately not exempt from that!

Giantsjim, I haven't been over at valley in weeks, glad to see you have been doing well, nice fish!! Hopefully I'll catch up with you over there soon!

I love my 2wt and find as a pure dry fly rod it is perfect for Valley which I fish more than any other stream. My 7'6" 3wt is my all season Valley rod and at times I wish it were a 7'. 8' is overkill for me at that location.
