Don't Buy Fishing Rods on Impulse

It’s Like with Golf Clubs…

“…I took a tour through the fishing department and couldn't help but notice the number of people looking over the many racks loaded with fishing rods in various lengths, colors and configurations. Many stopped at the first rack they came to and ventured no further. Most picked up a rod, maybe two, and gave them a good shake. If the tip wiggled according to some predetermined standard of flexibility, they checked the price tag. When the price and the flexibility matched, it was time to head for the cash register.”

Friday Fishing Report

“Striped bass, predominantly in the under 28-inch, non-keeper class (some in the under 12-inch "rat" class) continue to be the story this week. And the Housatonic River continues to be red hot, although the bass are starting to spread out along the beaches with the unseasonably warm weather. Slug-Gos and Saltwater Assassin Sea Shads in white and pink are doing much of the damage, but flies are working too, with the usual olive and chartreuse Clousers taking a big toll.”

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.
