Watch Next Week’s Issue of The Fisherman

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Next week’s issue of The Fisherman...New England Edition, Number 47, November 19, 2009...will contain an article written by Capt. Skip on making fly-fishing leaders.

Regretably, the magazine is not available on the Internet...one has to purchase it for $2.00 from a local tackle shop...such as Newtown Bait & Tackle.

We've added a video to our November 10th fishing report, below, thanks to Val. S.

“Connecticut's Naugatuck River salmon program will be the topic of the Tuesday, November 17th meeting of Trout Unlimited Nutmeg Chapter. Tim Wildman, from the Department of Environmental Protection, will be the speaker.

Catch Fish Right at Home: Raise Tilapia!

“’They don’t want to bite a hook. They will outfight a bass because they don’t want to be caught, but if you have the right bait, you can catch them with a hook,’ he said.

“’The trick is to use hominy or bread for bait. “You take a piece of bread, form it into a ball, place it on the hook and then wait,’ he said.”

Don’t forget, a saltwater fishing license is now required to fish the marine waters of Connecticut. You can purchase one from your local bait & tackle shop, such as Newtown Bait & Tackle, or at Town/City Hall.
