Took the family for the maiden voyage of my new #driftboat and Betty landed her first steelhead. #colbythelab had fun also.

#catchandrelease #stealthcraftprostaff @ Salmon River (New York)

Happy Easter everyone! 🐣 🐰

Made it home with the new boat around midnight, maiden voyage is tomorrow. Can’t wait to see what this thing can do!

A Pere Marquette rainbow, the remains of the Polish Plate from Barskis and a Michigan sunset made for a day well spent in Michigan. Back to New York today, can’t wait to try out the new boat at home! @ Baldwin, Michigan

My new boat is finally done! It’s heading to its new home on the #salmonriverny tomorrow. Be on the lookout 👀... now taking reservations!

Barskis Polish plate for dinner (I always forget the before photo) pierogies, kielbasa and polish sauerkraut, whatever that was called, no leftovers here

We made it to the lodge late last night. It was a long drive. Can’t wait to see the new boat! And do some fishing... 😉 🎣


It’s getting better now...

WOW - Water is ripping through the Salmon River Falls in Oswego County - a pressure buildup up river forced a water release at the Lighthouse Hill Dam, pushing water up a couple feet closer to Pulaski.

Fishermen have been advised to use caution during the high flows.

I signed up #colbythelab for the Super Chewer BarkBox. This month is a Game if Thrones theme 😂 #barkboxday 🐕 🐶 🦴 🍖

Here we go again, it’s that time of year #salmonriverny

Just had a cancellation for Saturday. Water temperatures are on the rise and the fish are in the river. Are you? PM if you’re interested

Hoping for some good information from the state #salmonriverny

Lots of high winds and cold temps were diminished by a couple chucky #steelhead on Anthony’s new #centerpin @ Dirty Bills Guide Service

I forgot about this photo, it didn’t have any fish in it 😂. It’s strange and wonderful the stuff you see when you’re fishing if you take a moment to look around.

So cold my boat is frozen to the ground 🥶

Tying up some Dalai Llamas for my trip to Alaska in September. These may or may not end up lost in a tree on the #salmonriverny 😂 🎣 🌳

How to Make Your Fish Bigger

sportingclassicsdaily.com Fishermen have been trying to make their fish bigger ever since lying was invented. Somewhere in a cave there is probably a drawing of a fish the size of a mastodon. In the fine print below, the hieroglyphics probably add, “And you should have seen the one that got away.” Then thousands of years...

There are 100’s of miles of snowmobile trails in upstate NY. For those of you that love snowmobiling as much as I do this is not just a fishing destination there’s so much to do here in the winter.

I don’t care how bad the fishing is the scenery makes it worth every second.

How many looks would I get for running this 250 hp, supercharged jet boat up the Salmon River? Worth it!

I found Matt Trombley of @3rdalarmcharters at the #greatamericanoutdoorshow selling trips and Daddy Mac Lures

For some local flavor when you’re in the area check out The Clam Bar in North Syracuse. Great seafood and friendly people. I had the seared cod with scampi sauce, delicious!

Super Bowl Sunday Funday! It’s been a few months since I picked up the center pin rod but it’s turned into a tradition the past few years before the Super Bowl. Nice 12# hen hit a pink worm.

Griffin popped his steelhead cherry today. Not many anglers come for the first time (ever) by bus, fish, hook and land a fish and have to catch another bus home but he did it! Also, I’m naming the Fly he caught it on the Dirty Bill, photos to come later (maybe) 😜

This is Braden Miller, he’s 13 and addicted to tying BIG streamers and fly fishing. Nice meeting you Braden, hopefully you can make it up to the Salmon River some day to try out some of that meat on some steelhead.

Come for the food and stay for the beer! The double IPA was excellent. @ Barley Creek Brewing Company

Where to go for lunch on the drive home?🤔 Go to the place with a pair of cocks on the roof. #putitinyoumouth

As I sat there watching #if4 , I realized from the oohs and ahhs from the “big” browns and rainbows, how lucky I am to be in the place I am regionally, physically (and mentally) in life. The majority of the people at the Edison Fly Fishing Expo don’t know that less than 5 hours away they can potentially catch a fish just as big (or bigger) than the ones they’re ogling over in exotic destinations. Other than those freakish fish such as the 200 cm Aripiama or a 50# Taimen, just much more accessible.

The things you see at expo/trade shows: films about the jobs you do, me standing next to $10k worth of Abel reels (not even considering the Hardy reels right next to them) and tattoos?! I may get one tomorrow, a tattoo not an Abel reel... @ Edison, New Jersey

I made it to the Fly Fishing Expo! #theflyfishingduck #cantseerob

After a few subzero days this year I gave in and decided to put my breathable waders away and purchase neoprene chest waders. I hate neoprene, it makes me feel like a stuffed sausage, so I’d stop shivering while guiding my clients.
I stopped at the local sports shop to buy a pair and I came across the Steelheader from @froggtoggs These things are a game changer! They’re breathable with a toasty warm quilted liner and 1200 gram thinsulate boots. Even on the cold days I can wade the river without freezing my extremities off, winter fisherman know what I mean 🥶. They come with felt or rubber soles, I got the felt but will likely add a pair of @korkersfootwear soles to minimize slipping and the inevitable buildup of frozen snow on the felt.
They retail for $249 and they’re worth every penny (I found them cheaper on Wal-Mart.com)
Not a paid endorser, I’m not even on their guide program, most of my local shops carry them and if you’re sick of cold toes go check them out.

The fog was so thick this morning that it looked like the river was on fire. The column rose so high that you could follow it above the tree line. Temperature was-15 when I got in my truck before I could safely take a picture. Warmer temperatures coming thankfully #salmonriverny

The fog was so thick coming off the water this morning that it looked like the river was on fire. As I was driving along the column rose so high that it was above the tree line. Warmer temperatures to come thankfully. The temperature was -15 when I got in my truck before I fished out my phone to take a picture.
