    In a thread, which at this juncture I cannot recollect we briefly touched on and discussed the merits of using this type of information to enhance our fly fishing experience. Today per these charts was rated very high success rate pending the eclipse that took place over the southeastern states, the tables indicated the prime or best time to fish would be between 11:30 am and 2:35 PM and predicated on that info we fished for LM bass and Bluegills during those time frames, our success rate was markedly higher and we could just see how active the fish were feeding and attacking surface offerings, bottom line, these tables, charts and weather frontal movements, barometric pressure fluctuations and projections are a useful tool in finding peak fishing times, try em out its an interesting process …

    The only weather that chases me off is WIND!
    All other weather I can handle.

    Paul, I haven’t tried it out, but I recently found this old fishing barometer that links the best fishing to barometric pressure.

    Hurts my head to think about it. I just go fishing.

    The one factor that I consider when I fish is barometric pressure. That does not mean I know what the pressure is because most of the time I do not know what it is(and do not care). I think about it but it has never kept me from fishing.I just wonder what it is and what it is doing, rising, falling, or stable. If I knew then I would be able to correlate it to my fishing results. In other words, I would have an excuse for my poor outing and have the knowledge to back it up. and science to prove it :)

    I just feel that it has the most affect on fish than anything else. Does it keep me from fishin, HECK NO !

    I fish when I can.

    Duff, I would love a gadget like that just for sh!ts and grins! Maybe a little smaller unit though.

    And it looks cool!

    Yes, but lets not forget that even poor fishing conditions is still better than not fishing.
    Fishing is always fun. Catching is just a bonus.

    The concept is to improve your rate of catch & to fish during peak feeding times & conditions … No one, myself included should restrict their fishing times to this thinking, it will IMHO and I’ve used the charts enhance your fish catching experience …

    I have a simple system Paul. I fish everyday.

    Even a blind squirrel will find a nut now and then. 😀

    Duff …that’s a cool barometric pressure instrument ..I prefer the older vintage devices like yours, they seem to be constructed better …mine is a modern version of the one in the photo …every once in a while put a wet paper towel over it for a short time ..it’s like hitting a reset button kind of brings it back to a default setting ..let me know if you ever fish to the barometric pressure indications and what you think of it …thanks
