Got a care package from Jim yesterday, a bunch of new streamer patterns to try, some new YOY Smelt patterns look very promising. He also sent a few Quabbin Specials, been a real killer for me..
Jim makes the super Rod Pumpers, well worth the price, put a Rod Pumper and a G2 Jigger on your boat and you wont need anymore lines.
Also got some more streamers from Cee Dee Streamers (G2 boys) for my vacation, 6 more Squam's Big John (really needed these, thanks) and 3 of his new RJ's Red Grey, looks good, supposedly out fished the Big John in early trials, I doubt it, ha,ha. These were made (and named) for Russ Johnson. Will have to have a "fish off" and fish them side by side to declare a champ, but all Paul's streamers have been super for us.. Paul is also working on a few May Fly (Hex Hatch) patterns, these we will desperatly need, this is a killer on fishing. Hope we don't need em til next year, but I'm pretty sure there will still be some around now for a while still.
Will try to post reports each day of my vacation, hope we have fish to report, the Hex Hatch is about over so fishing shoukd pick up.
