So our buddy Downsie at ljdownesrodcompany.com has a new rod for 2012: a 7′-0″ 3/2 4 weight, with Thomas-like wraps in red tipped black with full intermediates, complete with an Arne Mason leather tube for $1895. All Downsie’s rods are flamed to a medium brown and fitted with nickel-silver reel seat hardware and ferrules (blued hardware is no extra charge).

New Webpage

Alrighty then…..I want to thank everyone for all the feedback about the webpage. The changes are underway. There is a chance that the page will be down for up to 3 days as servers are updated. Fear not! We can rebuild him….bigger….stronger….faster. Fingers crossed!

Stream Report July 23, 2012

Penns Creek: Hi. Summer time is here. The creek has survived well and we had good rain last week. The flow is 209 CFS at 11 PM today. The water levels are exactly average for this time of year.

The Little Tan Caddis #16/18 and Yellow Crane Flies #18 have both been starting around 9 AM. The Yellow, Light and Orange Cahill #12/14 have been starting late because of the heat. The Slate Drakes #10 have started and so have the Big Blue Wing Olives #14/16. Blue Quills #18/20, Blue Wing Olives #20 and Midges #22/26. Lets stay in touch!

Spring Creek: Good. Tan Caddis, Blue Quills and Midges. Here is the flow below Fisherman’s Paradise at Axemann.

Fishing Creek: Ok. Same bugs as Penns.
