Earlier this summer I was fortunate to guide a couple of the social media experts who work on the state’s tourism accounts. As I recall it was a very hot day but we were able to spend the morning learning to cast a fly line and even brought a fish to the boat.
Hard to believe that August is nearly over. This month has been as busy as ever for me, much better than I expected even six weeks ago. This is the month of family fishing trips and I have done a bunch. We have caught perch, bass, pickerel, pike and stripers. Some of those were someone’s first fish ever and others something that they will dream of all this coming winter.
Or really trusting your instincts.
This morning I had a striper fishing trip, when I met my clients it was already raining and I offered raingear. They put on the gear and off we went. Fishing was lackluster near the harbor so I headed off downriver. About halfway to where I was intending to go the rain really started to come down. I turned back and stopped in quiet cove along a protected shore. Fish still ignoring the lures.
