Still hot and dry. There might be some relief coming on Monday and Tuesday.  A lot of the streams are reaching the danger zone, very low, and warm water.

Been enjoying my time off golfing, and remodeling a bathroom. It is not having to rush.

Back to fishing. I am planning on having a fire sale of some of my rods. I still have a lot that  I would like to sell. I will send out a detailed email this week. 



Pohopoco and Little Lehigh, morning only.

Central PA

Spring Creek  


All three have good smallmouth fishing right now. White poppers are working really good. Top water is fun...White flies have started.

2023 Spring Swinging Wetfly-Streamer Trip (3 nights)


April 13th, 14th, 15th, and 16th, 2023
Limited to 4 clients $ 1,200.00 pp 


Join Dave Allbaugh and Rick Nyles on the Little Juniata chucking streamers and swinging wet flies to big browns.  Don’t worry, we will not overlook rising fish.  This is prime time for catching trout on streamers as the hatches start and they are feeding up from the long winter.  The Little J is a larger stream with deep pockets, wood piles and long pools. This trip is all inclusive, 2 1/2 days of guiding, lodging on the Little J and all food.



Arrive by 2:00 pm on day one, have lunch and fish until dark. Dinner and bedtime.


Day two and three, quick breakfast, pack a lunch, and go fish until dark. Dinner and bedtime.


Day four, hot breakfast, and check out by 10:00 am  


Lodging On The Little Juniata


What type of bobbers do you use on a nymph rig? Did I say bobber, sorry, strike indicator.

There is no right or wrong. I use different ones, for different water situations.  The foam stick-ons are good for small nymphs and slower water. The the round bobbers are good for steady flowing water, and the big bushy one for fast water. 

Yes, there are a lot more types out there, puddy, New Zealand, and the dreading plaque of indicator lines. Bottom line, use what you feel confident with.

I have been using the Orvis CroQs this past year, and I like them. They do not deform the leader as much as the Thingamabobber due to the rubber ring. And they are small and float like a cork, pun intended. 

If I am going to move the indicator up and down a lot as we work the water, I will use the New Zealand indicator.  It is easy to adjust. Easy to recognize a strike. One thing I do not like is that fact you need tools to use, that's me. Tube, yarn and application tool. If you lose one item, oh well. I already lost the tool once. And I carry enough stuff around.

There is more I could add about indicators, this was just me two-cents on the issue.
