Fishing in New YorkPhoto Gallery: A friend of mine once said that New York is an outdoorsman's paradise. For those who live outside the state, that may seem hard to believe, but it's true, at least from a fisherman's perspective. There is an amazing diversity of freshwater gamefish available able anglers year around. Over the past ten years, I've accumulated quite a few digital images of NY fishing that I thought it would be fun to share.

Bass: The Movie
Review: With trailers available nearly a year before the film was available for purchase, BASS: THE MOVIE was indeed one of the most hyped fishing films in recent times. Jamie Howard of made this movie in recognition of anglers' love for the largemouth bass. Given the success of Howard's previous films, anticipation was running high and many advance purchases of the DVD were made.

Stolen hair: A jigging fly for almost any predatory fish originated by Bob Popvics. After a trip to Danish island Bornholm in 2007 Kasper Mühlbach wanted to tie and try this successful pattern and ordered a special color. But someone else came first and bought his custom dyed bucktail.

Small Fry, 2
Presenting Brookus bassa: The smallmouth bass is the headliner of small coolwater venues and that fact is understandable. Micropterus dolomieui bends fly rods and performs top water acrobatics throughout the course of the fishing season, even during the hottest dog days, as long as the human on the other end of the line knows his or her art and craft.
Fly-Fishing for Smallmouth
ron P. swegman has taken up fly fishing again, fishing a plain 5 weight rod, riding his mountain bike to the water, wading deep rocky pools in hip boots and not least: fishing a lowly city stream with the downtown skyline of a large metropolis in the background. He has written a book about it.

The Real Rag Worm
A wiggling rag worm: Every year in March and April the rag worms emerge from the bottom to secure the next generation. They swim freely in the water, wiggling from one side to the other. Sea gulls feed on the from above and many fish species seem to focus on them from beneath.

Warm water: In Virginia, the rivers are full of crayfish. Author Michael Smith AKA Rybolov went last week to the South Fork of the Shenandoah, and in a meter-square area along the shoreline, there had to be at least 30 crayfish. That may be why Skip's Dad works so well there.

Quest: This is a first! GFF partner Martin Joergensen read many books, which he had a hard time putting down, but never a fishing book. Not until this one at least. Bob "Bubba" Rich has managed to spellbind him with the story about the quest of getting into the Met Hall of Fame.
Read why this book earns a Global Class review.
Book Review: The book contains the information you would expect from a book on fly fishing for bass - bass bug tactics, water types, seasonal changes, but what separates this book are two chapters - one dealing with the fly fishing for bass, and one dealing with "bassin'".

Lefty on Bass
Fly Fishing for Bass: A few things you can count on when you read a book by Lefty - good stories, just-the-facts brevity, a conversation tone, and plenty of no-nonsense advice. Lefty continues this trend by filling the 143 pages with lots of his book with all of the above, and more.
