Many times our thoughts about fishing can be over taken by our memories of a destination trip out west, or a trip to the warm flats of Belize. I am guilty of talking trash on my local waters, when thinking about how great the fishing is other places in the US. Well sometimes we have to take a step back and remember the gems that we have in our backyards. Shane and I have been exploring some local streams on the class A list, that are within an hour of the shop, and he have not been disappointed. So next time you are dreaming about your last destination trip, stop, and think about the beauty in our backyards. PA has some of the best fishing in the USA, get out an explore a new stream next time you have some free time!
