Cold and windy today with the occasional snow shower thrown in for effect. Spring has arrived in coastal Maine sort of. The daffodils along the stonewall by our driveway are in bloom and the crocuses are putting on quite a show. For most of us though the real sign of spring is peepers on a warm night. Give a listen at this link.
Like all of you I am staying home (granted still going to the office in the house) and doing projects to prepare for my summer season. Things that need to be done like stocking fly and tackle boxes along with uncovering the boat. I have 10 new spinning rods that need to be set up on the next warm day. In between I have been on the phone. As someone who has been a guide for many years I am occasionally asked for my thoughts on issues that impact guiding in Maine. That happened a couple of times in the last month.
It is the people that make my business a joy. We are all in the middle of a topsy turvy time that is for sure. COVID cases are on the rise here in Maine but still we are nowhere near the rest of the country. The economy had a pretty big stop at the beginning and everyone is gradually figuring out how to work from home if they can. Schools here are not likely to open for the rest of the year. So everyone’s life has been rearranged.
