Hello People - Urban Fisher Over here!

Post  Pierre on 1/9/2011, 11:59 pm

Hi everyone,

Very new to this forum, I am glad to post in here. cool

I have been fishing since my early childhood and I feel fortunate everytime I catch a striper. I am originally a fresh water guy but I now almost exclusevily fish in the salt (~4 years). I live, work and fish in NYC. My favorite techniques are spinning and fly fishing.

"On the Water" magazine recently gave me the opportunity to publish an article about "Urban Fishing" in NYC so if you have questions about this kind of fishing, well, I ll do my best to answer. Very Happy

Even though I still have a ton to learn, I love surf fishing and I have a profound respect for the sport and his actors.

2010 has been a tough year for me but I have the feeling 2011 is going to be a great great year.

If you have a second, visit my blog: http://ifishnewyork.blogspot.com/

All the best,
Pierre

Hey Pierre!

Welcome To SBO

Congrats on your article in On The Water. It as the first thing I turned to when I got my magazine. I often drive up the FDR and see a lot of guys fishing the east river. I always knew there were a lot of fish in those waters but never got a chance to try it out because I had a car to worry about. Now, look at you having all the fun out there because you don't. You must get some strange looks on the subways with your rod and waders.


Next time I see a fly fisherman out there, I'll yell out "SBO" and you'll know its me.

Keep in touch!

Pierre,

The article was the first I read also! I am one to try and fish every spot no matter where it is, so I loved what you wrote! Good to have you here! Love the fly setup by the way!

Look forward to your posts!

Thank you guys! cool

I think my obsession is so damn strong that I could pretty much fish everywhere, all the time - The only thing I still can't figure out is that if I prefer fishing with lures...or with flies Very Happy

I personally enjoy more than anything exploring new fishing grounds, trying new approaches and I feel BLESSED to be doing this on the beautiful shores of New York and New Jersey cool

Guys, coming from a country where commercial fishing and pollution have been destroying pretty much all the ressources....you don't know how lucky you (we) are to be fishing these waters!!!

All the very best,
Pierre
