    I love fishing these for yellow perch in the finger lakes and smallmouth on the shenandoah. Of course, I'm sure they would also work for those fish everywhere in between.

    Good read

    I don't remember where I first read this interview, but it was just as engaging on the second read. I'd highly recommend reading again in a year ;)

    Mark, you are a smarter angler than me. I have been sitting and casting more and more as the water cools, but I can't always resist the urge to stand.

    Another +1 for regular waders. If you do any stream wading and already have waders, this is quite the economical route. I just wear the belt, tighten it and ALWAYS wear my PFD. Did I mention...

    All Very good info Mark! Thank you!
