Summer...what I'm doing.
Well folks the summer has arrived. The heat here in Connecticut is locked in place and will be around another day or so. The last time I fished was Friday and probably won't fish a stream until mid week. What I have been doing is taking care of my peppers which are doing well on the deck farm, and reading, in this case re-reading. Kathy Scott's book "Brook Trout Forest" has so many wonderful lines and thoughts, that they are worth a second and third look. Some of these lines I'll share with you in future posts.
I have also been doing a little fly tying. The streamers which are well known have been scaled back and what came out of the vise are "mini" variations of those streamers. The streamers are tied on Mustad's C53S hooks in size 14. My next outing I'll run them through a few likely places and see what happens.
