  1. My son sent me these from the Madison yesterday
  2. The Tackle Shop is now on Veranda Street in Portland, just south of the Portland/Falmouth line. You could, at high tide, beach your boat, scramble through the poison ivy , walk across Route 1 and walk into the shop. It's a great shop with guys who are very knowledgeable.
  3. Nice stuff all. Headed for Roscoe on Sunday morning. Looks like I might catch the end of Hendricksons and beginning of March Browns, plus caddis. Weather looks great- cloudy and cool the whole time.
  4. Nice. I went to my usual beach last night for casting practice. Thought I had a flounder at one point- turned out to be a surf clam....
  5. Better day yesterday- Black flies were out in force. This jiggy soft hackle thingy worked well.
  6. I was fishing an almost identical fly last night- little bunny fur tail, peacock herl body, cdc collar and orange bead. The brook trout beat it up. Also with all the rain, the brown squirmy with the red bead was the one.
  7. Atlas- I appreciate your reasonableness. You also fell into the futility trap of trying to use logic, reasoning and actual facts to rebut they're arguments.
  8. You make a lot of generalizations and offer very little in the way of constructive ideas. Repealing SALT is on the table, by the way. All the great stuff Trump did? I guess he was ok for a moron, incompetent criminal and charlatan.
  9. Fly fishing can be a simple or as complicated as you want it to be. It is a paradox, wrapped in an enigma, sitting on a contradiction, but oh I love it so. I have been fly fishing for over 50 years- I never get tired of it. In the last 4 years, I have branched out into different styles ( two hander/spey and euro- nymph) I have begun to tie most of my own flies (I used to many years ago). Last night, I went to a local, normally crowded, heavily stocked spot. I went practice my roll casting with my glass rod and the new furled leader I just bought. I stood in the rain and practiced for an hour, enjoyed my cigar and felt the cold creep through my waders. Did not touch a fish; nor did I care... It was blissful... I can be bamboo snob or an articulated streamer ripper; I can be a spey fisherman who seriously hopes he does not catch a fish as it would interrupt the zen of the casting... Fly Fishing keeps me sane; it literally saved my life in a very dark time... But, I digress. The mark of a successful man is one that has spent an entire day on the bank of a river without feeling guilty about it
  10. Hey The Boat- who put in those SALT limits again? And what was the real purpose of them? Oh yeah, it was Mr. Trump and his friends... to "punish" the liberals. On the other hand, if you are running up against SALT, you are doing OK.
  11. Nice Mal. looks awesome. Howdy Mako.
  12. You know that's an old pick; there's a big bluefish in it...
  13. Very interesting meeting. Need to get a lot more involved in the logbook program. I'm signing up.
  14. Someone was bottom banging in a yak in Casco Bay on Saturday right by Martin's Point.
  15. If you can only have one soft hackle....
