Bill’s Fly Fishing Blog for September 11, 2013. The Cabins at Lopstick, Pittsburg NH

What a day, to think here we are here in mid September certainly is hard to remember where or when, how many fish have passed through our nets, how many times have we

Nice Fish!

tied on a dropper or taken care of a tangles. Only thing that changes is the weather and the leaves.

It’s been an up and down kinda week with the weather and all. I’ve heard a variety of reports from the river. The one thing I can tell you all, is that you need a lot of tools in your tackle box. It certainly helps if your not a one dimensional angler. We’ve been out with a lot of guest this past few weeks and unfortunately some have had some tough angling, here’s the one dimensional part. Analyze, dissect if it’s not working. Why not!!! Sometime it only take a little time it dial it in and if you know fish are there figure out why there not eating and make them eat it. I had a gentleman up just last week from Preston, Ct and he had fish up here many times and always had good luck, I spoke to him prior to us going out and he had been skunked!! Well we set out on a half day wade in the a.m. and by the mid way mark of the morning we where calling him “HOOVER”. It’s all about tools in the tackle box, consistent and persistence. We’re just doing what we do.
