Video: Fishing a Monster Green Drake Hatch in Pennsylvania


Written by: Phil Monahan


Here’s a cool video from Eric Stroup of Facetime Fly Fishing, featuring some killer fishing with huge green-drake patterns in Central Pennsylvania. The acoustic stylings of Julius Borges, one of the anglers, is a nice touch. Plus, I dig the turtle-nose shot.

    That is a cool video. Watching it makes me want to leave the office, throw my gear in the car, and head east from Pittsburgh. Beautiful water, nice feisty fish, and the guitar accompaniment matched the tone of the film perfectly.

    Thanks for the nice words on the video. Julius is a true master guitar maker and a great friend. (he was playing my old beater–and it never sounded that good in its entire history of life) We were fortunate enough to hit the Drakes just right and I’m glad you all can enjoy it – even if it’s from your office. LOL
    Thank you again.

    Eric is a great guy and guide. We have some really wonderful streams in this part of Pa. The green drakes can be a great experience,, the biggest problem is being there when they are.
