For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

Good morning all. Here it is the first day of May. This is one of Springs best months. As I write this the weather is just what we need, cool and raining. It's good for all that blooms as well as all that swims. May features Cinco de Mayo, as well as Memorial Day. Some of the best fly fishing is offered this month, prolific hatches, longer days to fish, and maybe a new stream to try your luck.
So here's to all you good eggs, I hope May will be good for you.
All along the streams the effects of Spring are showing. Every thing is so green.
The ingredients to a mushroom chowder. Looking at these most of them are known to most. But there are a few things one must have as well as do before you can enjoy this wonderful chowder.
Russet potatoes, they are more starchy and will make a thicker chowder. Second you must use a good quality slab bacon instead of salt pork. Salt pork is very good for most other chowders but bacon will add so much more flavor to the mushrooms. And the key is to grill the portabella mushrooms first, I like to char them a bit this adds that different taste as well as texture. And finally you have to use real butter to finish it off. There can be no substitutes for this.
