I enjoy telling this story and this is the perfect place to tell it. Amy and I were
fishing a stream about 60 miles north of where we live. Every pool on this project
had at least one angler and when another car pulled into the lot I thought: "These
guys don't have a chance." I'm not sure what made me do it, but I asked Amy to
go tell them they can have this pool when they are ready. The man thanked us and
said: "My friend here has cancer and this was one of the few times I could get him
out fishing." I'm not sure if I caught any fish that day, but I know I felt good for a
long time after that. It was a day on the stream I would never forget.
These things don't just happen. You have to make the first move with your
actions and make them happen. When you see someone who has no place to fish,
make room for them, you just don't know what their circumstances are. Maybe it's
their last fishing trip.
It's only a matter of time before those of you who are part of the Contented
Angler will have a day like I had and you will never forget it.
I have so much respect for these two and
their family. They have certainly mastered
the skills but they somehow realized and
grasped the finer things that fly fishing
has to offer. Rarely do you see this at this
|The last thing you need at Erie is one of the super-fast
modern rods that was designed for distance casting. You
need a rod that will cast indicators and weight and throw an
open loop when you need to. The TFO Clouser rod shines in
ths situation, and it's a great distance rod!
New! from TFO 9ft. Clouser rods
|Roll casting for Erie Steelhead? The Wullf
TT has always been the best roll casting
line. Now with the new TT plus, you get a
line that is 1/2 size heavier for better short
to medium casts of for fast action rods.
|Make sure you see our new WETSOX. No more cold feet!
The TFO TFR (tough fly rod) was designed for
those cold days at Erie, but also to handle the
fish and the rough conditions. Designed to
throw floating or sinking lines.
This is a 2pc. design so you don't have to fool
around with 4pcs. in the cold and also for
durability. A 2pc. is also less expensive!
You can even buy an extra tip for this rod!
