Stevo Those two guys on page 73... Are they brothers?
There sure seems to be a resemblance!

FredA I have to agree with Sean. Only met Mike once, at Marlboro, but I'm pretty sure that's him on page 73. Book was published in 2001.

Thought that was you...


If you haven't seen it I believe the picture you are referring to is on page 73 of Mitchell's Fly Fishing the Saltwater Shoreline. I would be happy to lend you my copy if you want to check it out.

Striper Ed is a great guy and a very good writer. I have had the opportunity to fish with Ed and Mark Lewchick down in West Haven in the springtime looking for weakfish. He was fishing with Mark and I while at the same time gathering information and photos for yet another book. He took some pictures of some very nice weakfish I had taken earlier in the night and told me to keep my eye out for them in one of his future books. He definitely does not have the same attitude as some of the more well known fishing celebrities, I don't think he would even consider himself a celeb, he seemed to me to be just another one of the guy's and it was a pleasure to fish and talk with him. I have not read his books yet but will certainly read them at some point.

capt_gordon I have a cpmplaint (albeit minor) about the book. Mitchell refers to the Pamlico Sound as a lagoon. While it maybe in a definitive sense, it does not match his description of a lagoon as a long narrow body of water with barrier islands and such and etc. I don't think he has ever been on it. These are the kind of fish you can catch in Pamlico Sound by the way:

Stevo Hey Gordo...

Thanks for that. In fact I have just received my copy through the post, today!

Gonna be busy reading for a while.

capt_gordon Stevo,
I just received the book as a New Year's gift. It's good. Really good.

Stevo I'll answer my own post here, as I found it!

Going to order it right away.

Stevo Chris...

Is 'Fly rodding estuaries' the actual name of the book?

Great Read

Just finished the book. Loaded with great info. It makes me take a different look at old fishing spots. It's amazing what one sees once ones eyes are open!:eyecrazy:

doug jfbasser,
thanks for the tip on finding the book at the Bear's Den.
Looks like yet another reason to take a drive down there.

jfbasser Eight weight travel rod? Taking up bonefishing

FredA I've been offered a deal on a primo used reel that's hard to refuse, by a respected board member. Good match for the ten wieght. Still think I'd like something to match with the Vector and a future 8 wgt. travel rod. I need to fondle a few at the shows.
12-29-2003 09:03 AM
jfbasser When you go down to get the new reel?
12-29-2003 08:46 AM
FredA I still think Mitchell's "Flyrodding The Coast" is the best I've seen of the genre. A must have for those new to saltwater flyfishing (or saltwater fishing in general) in the northeast.

I may have to get my hooks on that copy at the Den.
