Trip to the Beaverkill

We had 12 members buck up for the trip and a few stragglers show up as well.  Renting Tight Lines North put us right on a great stretch of water.  A long pool, with a nice, deep run through the center.  The channel was as green as in my dreams.  I personally got up late Friday night and only was able to fish Saturday, but some of the more fortunate guys got two good cracks at the spinner fall.  Let me tell you that one day wasn't enough, as there were sporadic March Browns coming up all day long and there was too much water to try.  Just nirvana.  I managed two nice wild rainbows (one in a picture below).  One took a PT and one a spinner at dusk.  Mike Russo got a 20" brown on Friday night and I think Cliff was equally successful on Friday with a great fish.

Jeff Kurt was like the Tasmanian Devil, fishing here, there and everywhere.  He had the numbers on everyone.

What a great trip.  I cant wait to get up there again, and will find myself speeding up rt 17 as soon as time allows. 

Next time, think about joining us yourself, you slacker!

Thanks to John Eng for the photographic record.

John Eng at the right place and time.  Me with a 19" bow and the new Simms Hacklebarney hat for sale at the next meeting for $15.  Like my shameless plug?

Success comes in many different sizes.  One of many slot browns on the hook.
