Why I guide.

The picture I had been promised of a boy with his first big fish arrived last evening. The best part of being a guide is being part of someone’s lifelong memories.

I received this message today from one of Argy’s fellow teachers who gave here husband a certificate for a learn to fly fish trip that I described in an earlier post:

I just have to share a comment Scott made yesterday! He said, "I re-live that fishing trip every day!!! I go over every step Don taught me in my mind. I want to keep it fresh."

Guides Holiday

I know that I am supposed to be developing my idea for a book on the coming crisis in conservation funding but I am just having too much fun fishing these days. Went on a guide mini vacation last evening a couple hours of striper fishing at the best point in the tide with little wind I knew that the stripers were holding along a certain mud bank. Needless to say it was a blast. I went 29 consecutive casts with a hook up. I have no idea how many fish I finally caught but it was a bunch. What a treat for a guy who usually only unhooks fish.

A very enjoyable Saturday morning.

Fished with Dan Tarkinson of Fly Fishing in Maine Saturday morning and we caught a good number of stripers. Including the one shown in this picture. Interesting how the fish stopped biting as soon as the fog burned off. Sunday morning the sky was bright and the fishing held up until around 9:30 or so. It should last longer as the week progresses as we have better tides to fish.
