Grego:
that was a great post. I needed that on a dreary day (just ot about a foot of snow! 8^()
There are some big fish on the Beaverkill. Last year we had the FF@ clave there early June and it was fantastic. During the evening, the spinner falls were out of this world. Coffin flies, brown drakes, all types of caddis, cahills. The fish were at times on the brown drakes and at other times (late evening) on the caddis... but they wanted them just so. Very tough, picky fish. One evening I spent at least a half hour on one fish. He was rising steadily and was big. Finally took a little grey caddis and proceeded to spool me <g> Still, great stuff and the cradle of fly fishing in America... no doubt. The willow has some great water and fish, too. I love the flat water trying to figure out those beasts poking their snouts.
Sh*t! I need to fish.
