Ants, Winston and Abel for Father’s Day

IMG_0130-2The Gunpowder River is clear and flowing at a near perfect 75 Cfs and is in the mid 50’s F throughout most of the day. Thanks to Gene for the great shot of Backwater Angler Staffer Carl Cartier showing how to handle a solid Brown trout in a bend pool on the Gunpowder with a short Leonard and a long leader. The last of the Sulphurs can be found above Falls Rd each evening. If you are starting earlier, Ants and caddis are worth a shot. Be sure to stop in a pick up a few parachute ants and some 7x tippet. We have lots of Happy Father’s day items – from 5 piece Winston LT Fly Rods to Abel Zingers. Check out our new long-sleeved button down embroidered Backwater Angler logo shirts. When all else fails, gift certificates are always a sure bet and a walk in the woods along the river is priceless.
