I know I promised a frog last week, but I’m coming up short with it and I think it just needs more testing. So in the mean time I thought I’d share another one I’ve used recently, the 3” pearl spoiler shad swimbait by Creme. This lure is a soft plastic swimbait just like the keitech I reviewed, however its shape is quite different.
In a few short weeks, a new study of the Upper Delaware will be released. Entitled "Making Connections: Roots of Prosperity in NY & PA's Upper Delaware River Region. (Two presentations are scheduled for October 11. One in Hancock in the morning, and the second one in Honesdale, PA in the afternoon, details below.)
I was surprised and not surprised when I read the news that the Upper Delaware Scenic Byway was moving ahead with the placement of a visitor’s center at the train depot in Callicoon.
This week’s lure deserves a drum roll, however it loses its effect in type. Let me just say that in our little test pond behind The River Reporter, this lure performed better than anything else we’ve thrown yet. Just yesterday the sky was partly cloudy but the heat was up in the nineties and sweat was rolling off my head within minutes.
I have often thought that our editorial staff meetings could be live-streamed. I find the conversations stimulating.
Yesterday we were talking about a letter that arrived via the mail humorously responding to the Adolph Hitler quote that we ran on August 16.
The Kastmaster by Acme Tackle Company is another great spoon to have in your tackle box for almost any fishing occasion. They function as most spoons do, with an alternating swing during the retrieve to mimic a swimming bait.
When I arrived in 1978, Narrowsburg’s Main Street was in decline. I have a vivid memory of a women’s shop that Betty Kelly vigilantly ran. In the window was a woman’s half bust adorned with a Maidenform Cross-Your-Heart Bra. To this then 22-year-old rather boyish young woman, it looked forlorn.
I’ll start off this week with a thank you to the folks at Acme Tackle for sending a Little Cleo to test. I personally love this fast-flashing little spoon and have used it a lot while trolling Duck Harbor in Pennsylvania.
Krissy Smith beams when she talks about her purchase of the Callicoon Theater, and former owner Jim Kayton couldn’t be more pleased.
At a meet and greet at The River Reporter on Tuesday, Jim said that Krissy was a perfect fit for the Callicoon Theater, a single-screen venue that has been continuously operated since 1948.
