Reflections Of 500 Posts....Thanks All.

On April 10, 2010 I put forth my first post. It was not much, more or less telling of my new venture. The very first comment was made by "Apache Trout", and that first post landed me three followers. Since then I have managed to find 274 more people that find the same joy in the small streams of Connecticut and beyond. They have also endured some of my cooking, fly tying and thoughts on books to videos and gear. I try to be informative, and at times inspiring. While I like writing about my adventures, I prefer to post photos and let them tell the stories.

My love of fly fishing, and wild brook trout from small streams have been my focus and will continue to be. I appreciate all your comments and try to give my best responses. So in keeping with this blogs theme here are some photos of past posts showing the beauty of small streams, both in and around. In the last photo, my grand son Ethan is lovingly holding his first wild brook trout. It was a very special moment for him and me.

















Thank you..........

  12. I would not have used the word "endured" in this post. It's more like your readers have anticipated, welcomed, looked forward to, etc. There are no other blogs out there (including my own)that could sum up my love for the outdoors and fishing as well as yours does. I look forward to the next 500 for inspiration, ideas, and just plain entertainment.
