    Awesome video!

    Tie the clinch knot for your dropper to the tippet on your dry fly, not to the bend of the hook. A fish will sometimes hit the dropper when you are playing one on the dry, and it will pull the dry from the mouth of the trout you are playing.

    Excellent video! The editing is superb. You also had an excellent guide. Subscribed.

    Connecticut’s trout streams produce a lot bigger hatches and bigger trout. The upper Housitonic and west branch Farmington rivers are worth looking into for an episode on big hatches in New England…

    Bill Spicer is such a rock star! Ive learned a lot from him and the other NFF presenters.

    Was a nice rainbow till you gripped it up with that useless glove on your hand!!! By the way Michael Jackson wants his glove back!

    Nice video with informative tips for flies and pleasant commentary in what looks to be an ideal location. The guiding looks to be top-notch too. Thanks from lock-down down-under in NZ.

    If you have to social distance fly fishing is the way to go

  13. Jarret Jordan on April 11, 2023 at 8:43 pm

    Hahahahahaha. I’d show you the good spots. The "trophy stretch" gets pounded w fisherman

    Wow, 32 comments and a handful of them are unreasonable complaints.
    ‘People with data limits don’t like intros.’
    ’25 minutes of baby rainbows. Boring.’
    It must be a fly fishing thing. I watch fishing videos all the time, and usually the comments are a pleasure to take part in.
    I stop by a fly fish video (which I quite enjoyed, FWIW), and I find some whiners.
    Shame. I hate people that go out of their way to spread their miserable attitude. Who the hell doesn’t have unlimited data nowadays? Jeez, get a real phone and get off the pre-paid burner, pal.
    And I usually stop a video a few minutes in if I’m not enjoying it. I’m certainly not sitting thru 25 minutes of video I don’t like.

    Do fly fisherman usually grump like old ladies in this manner?

  15. Maribeth Saporas on April 11, 2023 at 8:48 pm

    Why are you not eating them?

  16. Rodc on April 11, 2023 at 8:49 pm

    Wife and I were up at Lopstick this past September. Would like to claim it was on purpose, but it was dumb luck we hit peak leaf season. Fished two days with a Lopstick guide, one day wading, one day drift boat. The drift boat day early evening the trout went nuts taking flies off the surface, so even a novice like my wife and I had a ton of fun dry fly fishing! Did some kayaking in a lake and a bog, did some hiking. Stayed in one of the Lopstick cabins. Was a super week!

    Insanely high quality content, as always. Thanks for a great video.

  18. 69adrummer on April 11, 2023 at 8:53 pm

    Gotta make sure that brand name is facing the camera haha

  19. AJ Viens on April 11, 2023 at 8:54 pm

    When was this filmed?

  20. vin jazz on April 11, 2023 at 8:54 pm

    Anyone who has met Bill Bernhardt likes him as a person
    Anyone whose fished with him loves him as a guide

    Hi.. I am new to the support got the interest developed in fly fishing from lou tabory fly fishing book on salt water. Kindly guide me as to the good gear and the books to learn the sport and get prificeint at it. Thanks. I have been doing trout fishing for some years now on spinning gear like trout magnet, mepps, spoons on ultralight setup with around 2 to 4 pound lines etc. We have beautiful lakes, rivers and streams to practice the sport

  22. Glade Goodrich on April 11, 2023 at 8:58 pm

    Never realized what great fishing you have back east.

  23. Erik Karlsson on April 11, 2023 at 8:58 pm

    8:40 like that you use a bobber ”indicator” rigg haha, try euronymphing instead, you get a more natural drift. Didn’t the fish rise?😘

  24. Keiran Rooker on April 11, 2023 at 8:59 pm

    I only fish nymphs cause I’m a huge fly fisherman and I’m not a snob (only some people will appreciate this joke lol)

  25. Böke Wilhelm on April 11, 2023 at 8:59 pm

    das ist bei uns verboten-zurück,nein

  26. Dave Notyerb on April 11, 2023 at 9:00 pm

    Over a minute and a half of music and intro. That’s a waste of precious data. It’s too bad that you have to through that onto the beginning of your videos, people with data limits avoid tutorials with all the extra video that teaches nothing.

  27. Clem Johnson on April 11, 2023 at 9:04 pm

    Great content, I learned a lot.

  28. HeroRyan on April 11, 2023 at 9:07 pm

    See a rise switch to dries. I’ve seen a lot of fish rising at my local stocked creek. I’m getting my first set of dry flies!

  29. Mason Wyatt on April 11, 2023 at 9:09 pm

    Perfect timing

  30. terry Brady on April 11, 2023 at 9:09 pm

    Rainbows,such an ugly fish compared to a wild brown…
    25minutes of little baby rainbows..Boring.

  31. Mira Murn Rožanc on April 11, 2023 at 9:10 pm

    Fly fishing is one fly and kook without a hich, everything else is fishing with float, is american way far from fly fishing.

  32. Matt Troutman on April 11, 2023 at 9:11 pm

    "I have to fight him gingerly, I have 4X tippet". I know you are not a new fly fisher. Most modern 4X tippet have break strengths of 5# – 7# and you could of landed a 24" steelhead with 4X. Nice video though.

    I got back into fly fishing last year up in Pittsburgh,NH while I was staying at Warriors @ 45 North. I have only been fly fishing only once this year.I managed a largemouth bass on a black woolybugger.I can’t wait to get up to Pittsburgh again,as I am in southern NH.
