Being Out

The days this time of year seem to be as one. The heat and that relentless humidity just persist, good for the veggies, but not much else. Being far from optimum, fishing must be put on hold til a few cool nights and some rain put a drop in water temps.

This gave us an opportunity to scout, and visit some beautiful places in Connecticut. The wild flowers fill meadows and fields sometimes for miles with color that's hard to capture in just one photo.

A rustic bridge spanning a small stream. A stream that will receive a fly or two before the years end.


A steep gorge, with water flowing on a journey to meet the sea. In its journey of many twists, boulders, flats and those ever present dams.


Peaceful. A home sits on a hill along one of Connecticut's fine rivers, the Housatonic.


If I can't be out fishing, just being out in surroundings as these feels pretty good.

    I could see my wife and I living in that very house, and fishing your famous Bomber in that looking stream. Thanks for sharing some great images--I scored again with the Bomber Tuesday--latest Post.

      If you can't fish at least you can be there and observe.
