I made it !

well, this is my first post as a US resident.

me n the missus are safely ensconced on the South Shore - at White Horse Beach in Manomet, so if anyone has any advice as to likely spots....... the stream and each end at dawn/dusk are looking a good place to start maybe.

i am off the leash tonight and so will be fishing the Chatham Light from 6pm to dusk and then in the Squire afterwards for a buzzards bay and a clam chowder if anyone is around.

Monomoy is calling loud


Mark

Thanks Guys,

I had one twinkie about 2lbs before i retired for chowder - there was a very nasty wind coming into my right shoulder that 3 other FFers also struggled with and no other fish were caught while i was there but it was still 2 hours before high tide.

it was nice to get off the mark and the Squire was as welcoming as ever.

We found a permanent house today further up the coast in Hingham, so i will be fishing that area from July 1st. If anyone can give me some pointers as to likely spots there too, i will reward with beer

Stevo, the house has 3 bedrooms so the Crusaders can stop over anytime.

more news when i get it.

Mark.

ps - anyone else see Captain Keith on TV on the Weather Channel (57) yesterday ? - i must remember to get his autograph next time i see him.

Shouldn't you be changing your name now to Manometbass or New England bass now?

It is amazing how quickly you can go off someone.

See you in the Autumn chap - or are you referring to it as Fall already? What, what, what - no quiver lip here old boy; stiff as an iron railing.

Anyways, I give it three months before you get kicked out - Home Depot can only carry so much sound proofing.

Adrian,

What hooks did you use for those bendbanks Stevo and I ponced off you when you were over.

Hey Mark -

If I recall you are quite the bassist (pun intended)... we should have to make some noise one of these days, although I just downsized my 4x12 hotrod deville for a more portable blues junior since I never turned the former volume setting past 2 of 12.

I think they were tied on Mustad Keel fly - 79666S

Not my favorite hook because the wire bends too easily and doesn't sharpen as well as I'd like. These days I do my own bending starting with a 4xl (or longer if I can find one).

See you guys in the Fall - er, Autumn

Thanks Adrian.

Too late for you, it's clear you went native years ago.

Hooks

Adrian

Do you just bend the hooks normal style or do you try to get that crank in them?

Regular bendback for bucktail streamers but crank/keel-hook for flatwings. Keel allows free movement of saddles from side-to-side.

Jamie

Actually I can still spell and say "Zed" rather than "Zee"!

However, I no longer walk on the pavement.
