There can be no doubt that it is summer this week. Hot and humid, it has been a while since we have had a stretch like this and remarkable that there is no afternoon sea breeze to cool things off. I have done a series of learn to fly fish trips and have a few family fishing trips in my calendar for the rest of the week. Fishing slows when it is hot like this and I need all of my tricks and little spots to put a few fish in the boat.
I don’t think that I can begin to explain the pleasure that comes from knowing a place well after many years in all sorts of weather. Not just the knowledge of where to look for fish and find them. Well, most of the time but not always. Rather the quiet knowledge of which coves are protected in a certain wind and which ones are exposed and not much fun to spend time in.
