Great site! I've been looking for something like this for a long time. I post in lotsa places, and the other name I use is longrodlarry. I've been asked why do I do this, but my other persopnalities won't let me answer.

 

I'm looking forward to shooting the breeze about tying and fishing with hook-n-feather! (Or hair)

 

I tie a lot, and I'll be adding to the post your fly forum. We'll make that thing enormous!

I live in the fine, fine city of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, and I fish the Allegheny Ohio and Monongehela rivers, and too many streams and lakes to count. If there's water, I'll throw a fly in it!

That's me! Glad to be here and I appreciate the welcome.

 

 

The srteams that I fish most often actually hold both Smallies and Trout. It depends on the time of year which will bite more. One of my favorite streams, the Neshannock Creek in Lawrence County, is a delayed Harvest Artificial lures only Trout stream, which holds the consistently biggest Smallmouth this side of Lake Erie.

 

The Trout get pretty huge too. Big Browns and Rainbows, with the occasional Brookie.

 

Big monster Pike roll through there too, and they drivew the guys who stock this section nuts! Pike fishermen are always welcome. I've seen them up to 47" out of there.

 

On top of all that, there are HUGE Snapping Turtles in there. Which is something I didn't know until folks from the Pgh Post-Gazzette outdoors came up to trap some, and in one day came out with individuals from an 8" shell to a 27" shell!

 

Needless to say I immediately switched from sandals for wet wading, to Flats booties!
