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.
