    Hmmm, now that will really make me consider the RA Rally!

    And consider the Gray Ghost Inn

    Full Vermont breakfast cooked to order and served with a smile is always included. We pride ourselves on using only locally sourced eggs, Vermont maple syrup, organic sausages and bacon which is dry cured and smoked in Vermont. By buying local products we are trying to do our part to ensure great tasting breakfast and a healthy Vermont economy.
    The innkeeper, Magnus Thorsson, is from Iceland and specializes in guiding fly fishermen and motorcycle groups.

    Orvis is not that far away.
    And The Museum too

    I've often thought that fly fishing and motorcycling would go well together.

    A celebration of
    all things angler...
    dedicated to preserving the rich heritage of fly fishing

    Established in 1968 in Manchester, Vermont, by a group of interested anglers, the American Museum of Fly Fishing was created to preserve and exhibit the treasures of American angling.

    Today, the museum serves as a repository for, and conservator to, the world's largest collection of angling and angling-related items, numbering in the thousands. Our collections and exhibits thoroughly document the evolution of fly fishing as a sport, art form, craft, and industry in the U.S. and abroad, dating as far back as the 16th century. Rods, reels, flies, tackle, art, photographs, manuscripts, and books form the major portions of the Museum’s collections.

    The museum, a nationally accredited, nonprofit, educational institution, supports a publications program where books, catalogs, prints, art, and a national quarterly journal, The American Fly Fisher, are made available to the public.
    Visitors to the museum may access in-house exhibits, related interpretive programming and research services year-round. Members of the museum help support the museum and its initiatives through membership dues and active involvement.

    Definitely!

    The commendation is in the works. It will involve a ride from Oregon to Vermont - no time requirement and a visit to some BMW dealers and a rally along the way!

    Now that truly is the perfect rally location. I'll have my five weight and three weight at the ready!

    It's how I flyfish most of the time. Most of the area's I fish are also great riding areas. If the fishing isn't up to your expectations ( in other words it sucked), you just pack up and go for a nice ride taking the long way home. It's a win, win situation.

    Fishing the "Kill"

    Caddis Fly

    The Battenkill is notoriously difficult. That isn't to say there aren't some big fish in it, there are, but they're super selective and they've seen everything in the Orvis catalogue since 1856! That time of year the water's low and slow in the Kill, a splashy presentation is enough to put the pool down for the rest of the night...in fact night fishing is ususally the most productive. (I once hooked a bat on a flying ant imitation fishing at midnight down on the 'Jungle' stretch south of Manchester!) The mayfly hatches have largely been replaced by caddis flies due to a lot of siltatation. The Hendrickson hatch and spinner fall is the best hatch but it's in May. If you want to fish the Kill, I'd recommend the Trophy stretch just over the NY border in Shushan. Actually, The Wallomsac in No. Bennington is also productive for browns and rainbows and closer to the rally site. Also, the Mettowee in between Dorset and Pawlet, VT holds a good population of rainbows,
    too. They're small, but eager, which is more than I can say about the Battenkill.

    Here are a couple of links:

    Pownal #1

    Pownal #2


    Be sure to check out the Bennington, Vermont and Williamstown, MA since both are just a few minutes from the site.

    It will truly be possible to pitch your tent, sit in a chair with your favorite brew and fish the Hoosic River.

    Once the same river flows into New York it becomes the Hoosick River. No idea why the k is added.
