#1 What's your favorite PA stream to fly fish?
A Class A I won't mention

#2 What's your favorite non-PA stream to fly fish?
Don't know, never ff outside of pa yet

#3 What's your absolute favorite fly to catch a trout on?
Anything I tie, which is all of them. I like to catch them on big floaters like humpys etc.

#4 If you could only fish one fly the rest of your life which one would it be?
GRHE

#5 What stream have you not yet fished in PA that you really want to?
Penns Creek

#6 What fly have you never caught a trout on that you really want to?
Wooly bugger actually, I have never even tied one on.

#7 If you could not fish for trout for a whole year, what other single species of fish would you target with the fly rod?
Probably nothing, I hunt big time. And ff trout is the only type of fishing i care about anymore

#8 One trip, One week, any where in the world, where do you go?
Somewhere to catch monster wild browns

#9 What is your favorite hatch and on what stream?
Honestly, The streams local to me suck so bad that there aren't really many hatches atleast ones that compare to what I have heard of. I guess caddis on neshannok was good a couple times

#10 If you could fly fish with anyone for one day, who is it?
A buddy of mine, he is an absolute riot to fish with. Type of guy that makes you laugh historically the entire time. Problem is he is lousy at fly fishing and doesn't care to try to do it anymore.

#11 If the state decided to eradicate Brown and Rainbow Trout in an attempt to reintroduce/enhance Native Brook Trout, would you be on board with it?
Yes, Where Im at with fishing in my life I could care less about catching a stocked trout that can't survive where they dump then in for more than a month anyhow.

#12 You hike 5 miles back in a remote area and the pool you come too is boiling with rising trout, you are the only one there and you KNOW you have the right flies, but you realize you left your license in the vehicle, what do you do?
This is gods country, cast in and wouldn't think twice.

#13 Evening is just beginning and you get a text from a wife/kid/parent/etc... saying they would like you to come home, but no other explanation, do you leave or pretend you didn't have service?
Find out if its important, if it is leave. they are just fish

#14 You are fishing a good size stream and you notice tubes and rafts heading your way full of sorority girls, do you ask them to go around or just let them float on by? (that HAS happened to me!)
Probably panic and pull my hat way down over my eyes and avoid eye contact with them as they floated by. I get nervous in situations like that lol

#15 You and another angler arrive at the same spot at the same time, what do you do?
Leave, I don't like to fish with other people I don't know

#16 Mother nature calls and you don't have any TP, sacrifice the socks, shirt sleeves, or use leaves?
Rip something off my clothing of some sort.

#17 In the heat of a great rise, you accidentally hook your fishing buddy bad, like need a doctor bad, what do you do?
Get him to a doctor

#18 What's the biggest lie you have told another angler on the stream? Never fished here before, or its way better down there…sending them somewhere that is terrible.

#19 What's the biggest lie you have told your wife/parents/kids/etc... when you got home?
We were catching them so good we lost track of time… on days when you never got a bite and you keep looking at your cell phone thinking "I have to get at least one hook up before I leave, I can figure them out"

#20 24" Brown Trout, 28" Rainbow, 32" Palomino, or a 16" native?
Probably the Native, if the brown was wild then the BROWN for shizzle.

#1 What's your favorite PA stream to fly fish? It's a toss up between Penns and the fly stretch on White Deer.

#2 What's your favorite non-PA stream to fly fish? Never fly-fished out of state.

#3 What's your absolute favorite fly to catch a trout on? The one that works that day.

#4 If you could only fish one fly the rest of your life which one would it be? The one that works EVERY day!

#5 What stream have you not yet fished in PA that you really want to? Since my fishing is so hit and miss during the year I really have no preferences or favorites.

#6 What fly have you never caught a trout on that you really want to? One of my brother's concocted cicadas

#7 If you could not fish for trout for a whole year, what other single species of fish would you target with the fly rod? I'd probably hop farm ponds for pan fish and largemouths or creeks and rivers for smallies

#8 One trip, One week, any where in the world, where do you go? Not really fly fishing related, but I would head for Canada like we did when I was younger. Nothing like hauling in a few 25+ inch northerns or a couple hundred perch.

#9 What is your favorite hatch and on what stream? I have only hit the green drake hatch on Penns once, but it was pretty sweet so that's my choice.

#10 If you could fly fish with anyone for one day, who is it? I have had so many memorable experiences with my brother that I could not imagine fly fishing with anyone else.

#11 If the state decided to eradicate Brown and Rainbow Trout in an attempt to reintroduce/enhance Native Brook Trout, would you be on board with it? I would love to say yes, but I would miss the aggressiveness of a good brown.

#12 You hike 5 miles back in a remote area and the pool you come too is boiling with rising trout, you are the only one there and you KNOW you have the right flies, but you realize you left your license in the vehicle, what do you do? My license is saved to my phone as an image file. If I would get stopped I would show them that and my ID and if they still insisted on seeing the real thing I would walk them back to my vehicle. Except it would be about a 7 to 10 mile walk on the way back!

#13 Evening is just beginning and you get a text from a wife/kid/parent/etc... saying they would like you to come home, but no other explanation, do you leave or pretend you didn't have service? I would leave. Family comes before fish.

#14 You are fishing a good size stream and you notice tubes and rafts heading your way full of sorority girls, do you ask them to go around or just let them float on by? (that HAS happened to me!) I wonder how long I can lay on the bottom and hold my breath...

#15 You and another angler arrive at the same spot at the same time, what do you do? Fish away. If it's not the first day, there is usually more than enough room to be sportsmen about it.

#16 Mother nature calls and you don't have any TP, sacrifice the socks, shirt sleeves, or use leaves? Socks.

#17 In the heat of a great rise, you accidentally hook your fishing buddy bad, like need a doctor bad, what do you do? Cut the line, re-tie, and hope he has a lot of bandaids or didn't have to use his socks for question #16.

#18 What's the biggest lie you have told another angler on the stream? Does telling stories about being in the Outdoor Channel, being chopter in for the opening day of trout, pretending to be a brain surgeon giving directions on a surgery over the phone while waiting for 8am, count?

#19 What's the biggest lie you have told your wife/parents/kids/etc... when you got home? I caught more fish than my brother!

#20 24" Brown Trout, 28" Rainbow, 32" Palomino, or a 16" native? 24" brown on Penns.

Re: Cabin Fever 20 Questions

1. Stoneycreek. Great browns, brooks, and rainbows

2. Never fished a stream out of PA

3. Parachute sulphur (Stoneycreek best!)

4. I wouldn't pick. I would sit on my rocking chair and cry

5. the Youghiogheny

6. Not sure I understand this question.. a fish is a fish to me!

7. Bass. Lots of fun, big leaps for poppers

8. Mongolia

9. Didn't I say that with my favorite fly? lol Sulphurs on the Stoney

10. My dad

11. Heck. No. Love wild trout, but I know plenty of native brook streams with zero other species. Just leave the browns and rainbows alone!

12. I fish. Heck, I know I have a license. And if that fish warden comes by, he can check my driver's license. If he makes a big deal about it, I'll walk back and SHOW him my license

13. Go home. My wife is still more important than a trout.. by the way, why wouldn't I just call her and find out what was wrong??

14. Let them float. They really don't mess up the water that much for that long (trust me I've had it happen too) and it gives me a few minutes to look at something besides water

15. I talk to him, ask him where he wants to fish, and try to be fair about water usage. However, if he starts being a jerk, well it's whoever gets there first at that point. I can be nice, but I can be mean too

16. Depends on how nasty it is, but usually leaves.

17. How do you hook someone "need a doctor IMMEDIATELY" bad?? Through the eye maybe... in the eye, doctor time. Anywhere else, suck it up and put some water on it

18. I try not to lie to other fishermen (seriously!) but I have told people that I didn't catch anything after having a great day (I don't do that very often, unless the guy is being a jerk. See #15 above)

19. Again, I don't lie about fishing. If I catch something, I tell them so. If I didn't, I still had fun and I tell them that too. Usually my wife is with me anyway. She's my fly fishin buddy most days

20. Torn between the native and the brown (I caught one 24" brown in my life, and one 12" native, so they are both exciting!)

A bad day hunting rabbits beats a good day of anything else!
