A wild brown trout, and some blueberries.
There are many times when people who follow my blog will email me with their thoughts as well as a photo or two. Many of their outings as well as there locations are given to me and they are held in confidence. And there are those photos in which the angler does not mind sharing and gives me the O.K. to post on my blog. This is one of a host of photos that Michael Stephens has sent to me. The photo is absolutely gorgeous.
Mike is also a rod maker with many fine rods to his credit. I am trying now to decide just how I want mine built.

The next few weeks are going to be hot, mid summer here. In these times some of the small streams need a break from fishing. While there are certain times when I'll pay them a visit as well as the cold tailwaters of the Farmington. I do have many summer activities that keep me busy as well as outdoors.
One such activity took place yesterday. Jeanette and I went blueberry picking for the first time this year.
On this farm the bluberries span as far as you can see.
Native Connecticut blueberries. These were sorted and debris removed. They were placed on cookie sheets and put into the freezer. Today they will be bagged and frozen. They will be wonderful eating come winter. A reminder of a hot July day.
Jeanette's blueberry muffins. Had one last night, and perhaps one for breakfast this A.M.
