With the temperatures hovering around the 100 degree mark over the last few days it's tough to keep cool. I enjoy the outdoors but that century mark on the temp sign makes you want to stay close to the AC.
Here are a few things I've been doing to try and get through it.
Wednesday we paid a visit to the Farmington River. That 60 degree water felt good.
Time spent mostly sitting in the water, but did cast a fly once or twice.
Although hunting season is months away, certain permits must be mailed now. Yesterday while filling these out, the thought of the weather the Monday following Thanksgiving, that's when these permits will be used, seem to have a cooling effect to the mind.
I tied up a dozen of these, "Brk Trt's Emergers", for a fly swap.
And since the AC is pumping, oh those electric bills, I decided to turn on the oven for an hour or so, I make this wonderful salmon loaf.
I got the recipe from....http://fishon-fishoff.blogspot.com/2011/07/salmon-loaf.html.
It's very tasty.
Well try to stay cool.
