Fly Tying Anyone?

This past week has been a tough one. Unseasonably cold weather has slowed fishing considerably. Some regulars had decent days on the Gunowder, the Shad fisherman however wil have to waitfor warmer temps. as the fish seemed to have moved back to deeper and warmer water. The weekend forecast spells one tying! There areworse ways to spend a weekend and if there is anything you need or any tips or advise for that perfect pattern please, don't hesitate to drop by or even call. we are always appy to show you how to do anthing at all that may be giving you trouble.

Mixed bag

Fishing reports have been mixed at best. Fish are taking a variety of offerings from Black Stoneflies fished dry, to soft hackle Hare's Ear's underneath. Those fishing wets and nymphs are doing the best and this will hold true with the cold front for at least a few more days.

Shad are in the river and some have even been seen in Deer Creek...but not a lot. There have been some good days fishing the Susky already and next week when it warms a bit it will only be better.

Tight Lines,
