Who's on First

Who do you think will be the first hardy angler to wet a line in the New Year?

Would it be Bill D? Maybe someone with some new Christmas gear?

What's your prediction?

RE:Who's on First

Not counting TonyG in New Zealand summer or the hardcore winter steelhead crew out west, I'd have to say it's Tony Stetzko if he puts down the brush long enough. I have heard that his recent paintings are exceptional and available in prints. Harry Koons is another candidate; living in Orleans makes it a little easier to wet a line in the trout-packed kettle ponds.... not to mention a few brood stock salmon big enough to out fight most bluefish. I guess we're talking about the striper gang here, so that being the case I would suspect a Larry sighting at Scorton Creek is in order. It would have to be someone old enough to have no hot date at a first night party, but young enough to bother with a January 1st wade. Al lives awful close to the water and is on the warm side of the state... you, Mr.Stachelek, are just as good a candidate as any being as hard core of a salty flyflinger as you are down there in the Ocean State.

Whoever it is, he/shewould be the Brown St. bear of the flyfishing community

Can't argue with your logic Juro. Sounds good to me. What about time zone changes? Where does the New Year happen first? Australia?

I tried to start a New Year's tradition of sorts in RI. Always wanted to claim that I was the first to fish the "Hexagenia Lumbada Hatch," at Wood River.

Each year I would invite Left Kreh, Dave Whitlock, Joe Humpfrey, and others. I would have my hole all staked out hours before. But every year, they would never show. That's why I stopped the tradition.

ssuly -

You're right, they sure are pioneer and legends of fly fishing. They all E-mailed me back. Their direct quote, "Who in the hell are you anyway?"

Seems like my reputations precede me.
