Today is the first day of Spring, but here in Connecticut it looks like the first day of Winter. It was cloudy all day and the threat of snow was present. The forecast is for snow and it was accurate and the white stuff is falling down. We were at a point where the bare ground was showing and the mounds of snow were on the decline and hopes were high that finally we had broken the winter trend.....oh well.
Tomorrow looks to be a bit warmer so this new snow should begin to melt rapidly. So there is few things to do except read, tie flies and perhaps watch a bit of TV.
And so it gos.
But on the bright side in a few weeks we will have these guys bouncing up and down along the streams, and the trout coming up for some simple dining.
The sheer delight of bringing a wild brook trout to hand will be a reality.....believe me it "Will" happen.
In the meantime find a bright sunny place, brew yourself a cup of coffee and have a piece of home made raisin bread.
the food sure cheers up that weather forecast for you! :)ReplyDelete
Theresa it is the bright spot in the forecast.
Sorry Alan, I thought maybe you were done. 70s here in Colorado. I'll be think about you.ReplyDelete
Howard that hurts. Still looking forward.
Sick of the snow....'nough said! Ten days till trout season opens....it can't come soon enough.ReplyDelete
Chris this winter sucks. Going to have to take up ice fishing again.
I want some raisin bread now. That's a neat simple pattern. The snow is all gone here, and the ice is nearing the end.ReplyDelete
Justin I'll trade you some raisin bread for a snowless day.
You always have excellent advice. Thanks for another enjoyable post.ReplyDelete

We are running thin here at small stream reflections.
Snow and New England they just go together ! Think I will get out today anyway, after all it is the first full day of Spring!ReplyDelete
I was thinking of tossing a fly but this wet snow changed my mind. Hope you do well.
The bread, brook and the fly all seem to help past the time in this snow beaten place, I know you and the wife are getting sick of the stuff. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law use to live in New Hampshire years ago and would get quite bored cooped up in the house for long periods of time during the snow covered months. They live in Texas now. Hope you get out soon and land some of those beautiful brook trout. Thanks for sharing
Bill this winter has been terrible. We can't get two days in a row that have temps above normal.
I'm getting very impatient for winter to break..even looking forward to the black flies..that's just crazy..ReplyDelete
It has been a tough one indeed. You have it bad when your looking forward to those monsters.
Love the look of that Toast buddy, wow.ReplyDelete
