Stood up

It happens once or twice a season. Someone makes a reservation and then does not show up. Today is one of those days for me. It was to be the first nature watching trip of the summer. Luckily I have a ton of work that needs to be done in the office and around the house. Still; I always wonder what the person that asked me to be ready for them and then simply does not show up is thinking, do they think that I do not notice that they are not here? The answer is to make sure that I get a deposit but most of my clients become friends and I am sometimes lulled by that friendship.

The new LL Bean hunting catalog arrived in today's mail and there on page 99 as promised is my smiling face. I’m quoted about how swell a pair of boots is but they changed my words some. At any rate I’m sure that it will bring comments over the next few weeks and I am enjoying my 15 minutes of fame. You can order a catalog of your very own at

Late morning blitz

I fished this morning with two former colleagues at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. We started early and I expected to be off of the water no later than 10. The fishing was very slow we had a three fish to the boat and several bites that were not hooked up. I headed toward the harbor and made one last drift on a favorite ledge. At the end of the drift I looked down river and the birds were going crazy over fish breaking everywhere. We quickly moved to the breaking fish and all had on nice fish. After landing a few fish it was over as quickly as it started.
