A Plan for 2013
I was in need of some tying materials, squirrel tail to be exact so we took a drive to a fly shop I knew would have them in stock. The shop is located on the banks of the Farmington river in New Hartford, Connecticut.
After getting my tails, as well as a few other necessities, weather needed or not we continued to drive along the river to its upper reaches. The west branch of the Farmington flows alongside of the Old Riverton Inn. I have never dined here but it is on our list. Across the bridge from the inn is a general store that has some great coffee, and muffins, this is knowledge from experience.
The west branch is a beautiful river. And seeing it a few hours after a fresh snow brings out features one can only see in winter.
These are a few of my favorite haunts on this river. Big waters that I'm able to fish like a small stream. Bombers, caddis, and Picket Pins fished in my own style.
I fish this river many times year, but this year I will fish it more often. There's some wonderful wild things going on here.
