Just got home from a weekend in your area Hambone and I like it more every time I visit. I'll surely have to take up fly fishing when I move down there. I did layout a fly fishing book a few years ago for one of the key fly fishing authorities here in upstate NY, maybe you have the book. I'll be watching for that red beast next weekend while I'm out and about. We're going to try to find a nice spot to camp in the Delaware State Forest. Any suggestions? Of course I don't expect you to give away your best spot, but maybe something more traveled?

The improved campsite pictured in my report is one of three in the Delaware State Forest. They are shown on this map:

http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/forestry.../delaware.aspx

Camping at these sites requires a permit, which can be obtained from the Regional Office, or online.

Primitive, back-packing style camping elsewhere in the State Forest does not require a permit.


Flyfising is a rewarding pursuit. It would help to have an experienced flycaster show you how to cast, as that is really the only tricky thing about it. IMO there is no better place to hone your chops than Ressica Falls. It's pretty, it's well-stocked, and it has a wide variety of types of stream conditions: pools, rills, riffles, undercut banks, glides, overhanging branches, stream boulders, and so on.

I'll be taking the bike to the Hotrod Hoedown & Rockabilly Roundup next weekend, but we may run into each other one of these old days.

Trust me, if I see your bike which won't be hard to spot, I will make you stop and say hello. Thanks for the link to the state forest. That's going to come in handy.

I have a very good friend that rides a 98 VFR in Allentown. His first bike was that same bike only the 125 version. I sent this report to him knowing he'd enjoy your sense of humor and he'll also be looking for that awesome machine if it passes through his area. There's a lot to be said for bikes of that vintage but mostly it's the sort of things I experience riding a Triumph. You can't stop for gas without having that old conversation ... "When I was young ... My uncle had one of those ... I remember those, my best frind had one" ... starting up almost on cue.

I get the same thing. Seeing a vintage bike gives a lot of folks an in to start a conversation. Meet a lot of nice folks that way; a fella on a harley trike who's health was such he couldn't ride two wheels anymore - told me about how he rode to Canada on a CB350. A one-legged Viet Nam vet told me about his Purple Heart, and about how he used to race dirt-track with an old Beezer when he was young. And the guy who drove this nice Stude:



...told me he used to have an SL350. It's a nice way to get to know a little about folks you wouldn't otherwise get to meet.
