Autumn On The EB

Autumn On The EB
Fly Fishing The Millers - With over 30 years of fly fishing this river I will claim more knowledge and fish caught than anyone. There are over 40 miles of river and I will take you to the best sections and if you want to sections that never see another angler. Don't be fooled by those who say the Millers is a Spring and Fall river. I'll show you how to have great Summer action. The "EB of the Westfield" - Wild and beautiful is the only way to describe this river. There's a lot of water here but I know where to go to catch trout. After a trip you will too!! Solitude and trout IS the EB. The Swift - 20 trout days are not uncommon on this river if you know what to do and use. I'll show the way and you catch the trout. RATES - Full Day (6 hours) = $150.00 for one, $225 for two (lunch included). Half Day (three hours) $90.00 for one, $155.00 for two. Beginners Class - 3 hours ffor $90.00, all use of rods lines, reels included.

An October Saturday on the Millers

Yup, back at the Kempfield except this time there are two other fly fishers working the water above the big flat pool. There are many browns nymphing the stretch above Whetestone Brook. Another regular is pounding the deep slow water below but to no avail. It's a replay of the last trip where the browns are showing nothing but dorsals and tails. From 3:30 to 6:30 I take two, about 16 inches on a very light olive emerger size 18 and miss about three others. I can't believe I'm using 7x!!! Two of the anglers leave without any luck. Another fly fisher catches one on a tiny emerger but as darkness falls I give my spot and a big brown I've been casting at to him. He lands it on, can you believe this, a #14 Usual!! The brown is a full 17 inches and full of autumn color. It's a perfect evening with VERY difficult fish. One moment is worth mentioning. The last guy that I mentioned and myself saw a monster brown rise and then begin to tear up the stretch we were fishing. It had to be a 20 inch fish and very aggressive.
