- Pike County
I live in Pike county and I've fished spinning rods since I could walk but never picked up a fly rod until a couple weeks ago. I was inspired by a local college kid's youtube channel (Outdoor Tech PA). I seen him catching a pile of trout on streams I fish. I picked up a super cheap 3wt Maxcatch nymphing setup to see how I would like it. I've been out twice and I'm amazed at how many fish I've been catching. I'm used to fishing small jigs like Trout Magnets with a spinning rod. I would catch a few, but nothing crazy. After using the nymphing rod, I feel like I was trying to hammer nails with a wrench for the last 20 years. This is the right tool for the job.
