"Dog Days Bounty"
This time of year, the dog days of summer, are upon us. As far as cold water fishing there are not many choices out there, a few tailwaters, but the small streams are pretty much shut down til cooler waters prevail. I have a few I can still fish, they are holding 63 degree water, but with low water the trout are very cautious, you have to bring your AAA+ game with you to bring a wild one to hand.
This week I have fished and did a lot of recon. I have selected two thin blue lines I have not fished. These streams are located in both ends of Connecticut and I believe they hold wild trout. I'm planning on fishing one soon.
Summer also brings in some of natures bounty from local farms. These are potatoes from a farm in Newington. They are fingerlings, sliced and fried the same day they come from the earth.
You may look at these steaks and say ribeyes. They sure look like ribeyes, but they are chuck eyes. Well marbled, tender and flavorful. Rib eye 12.99lb, chuck eye, 5.99lb.
Grilled chuck eyes, and pork tenderloins.
I'm at the end of this post and I didn't mention the first photo. A wonderful cook book from LL Bean. It contains recipes of fish and game, along with many others. Many of these recipes can be substituted with other meats, and vegetables.
