Today, continuing our series of podcasts on winter season fly fishing for trout, I talk to George Daniel, author and guide. George is likewise an Orvis ambassador and field tester, and he teaches the famous fly-fishing course at Penn State. As you’ll find, winter season fishing in Pennsylvania shares numerous resemblances with winter season fishing in other parts of the nation, and George uses some flies and strategies that are a bit better suited for the Northeast.
In the Fly Box, we have some excellent pointers and concerns, consisting of:
- Do you utilize touch dubbing, split-thread dubbing, and composite-loop dubbing strategies?
- I’m trying to find a fly line to fish banners for bass, trout, and panfish. Which line should I get?
- What leaders do I require for my Clearwater Trout Spey setup, for both Skagit and Scandi lines?
- What’s your strategy for capturing largemouth bass, and what are your preferred flies?
- Why can’t I get my calling noodle to act?
- Which intermediate line should I get for fishing banners and signs in 4 to 8 feet of water?
- A fantastic idea on a technique for moistening marabou and other products without putting them in your mouth.
- I fished prior to a cold front and got skunked. I believed fishing was expected to be excellent prior to a cold front.
- What line and leader and tippet would you utilize for trout in lakes in 15 feet of water?
