    I go to nearby pond because it's close

    and regularity stocked with trout. You would think I would catch something but I don't. I see people all around me catch their limit and then go home. I catch weeds and a small blue gill or two. Yesterday though I caught a big brooder! It kind of makes up for all the days I didn...

    What am I doing wrong?

    I love to fish this one way my dad showed me. I use a fly with a spinning rod instead of a fly rod. My problem is that my rigging keeps twisting up. I don't remember it ever doing this when my dad would do it for me. I use a clear bobber with a swivel, about 3 ft leader line...

    just went to a creek called pennypack today.

    . caught a few rainbow trout, tons of nice bluegills and some rock bass, with a pumpkin seed and American eel thrown in there. One of the best days in a while!

    Absolutely like fishing.

    Love finding a small fishing hole, hooking up a worm, and casting my line. I prefer to use bobbers though. I don't really care if I catch a big fish or not either. It's just fun and relaxing. Except I'm terrified of fish. Haha. Don't ask.

    Fly fishing at the farm,

    I could spend hours and hours doing this, its so relaxing an quiet. Only two issues - its hard to drink a beer while casting, and I generally catch nothing (which isnt really a problem but it would be nice to have something to show for it)

    I love to cast my line

    and lure and try and get them to bite. I love being outside and in nature. Fishing is so relaxing, even if I don't catch anything always enjoy it. I'm looking forward to my fishing trip this weekend. Need to clear my head.

    Tales From The River Bank ......

    I am absolutely addicted to bass fishing.

    My two favorite methods are top water and senko's. I caught my personal best at 6 lbs last year on a top water frog. Fun stuff!

    Me and my daughter went fishing today.

    I caught three catfish and she caught her very first fish. She thought it was a snag at first. Her fish ended up being the biggest. She was very happy. Im glad I got to see her catch it. I wouldnt trade that moment for anything.

    Something We Do As A Family

    Waking up early, the sun just about to rise. Getting the kids together and going off to fish. There is just something so peaceful about it. It relaxes you as well as the thrill of not knowing what your gonna catch. The kids love it and so do I.
