It's Opening Weekend
Beautiful - thank you for sharing...I love the very moment when the trout hits the fly; the potential to tune into greater awareness can be unrivaled! The more I fish, the better I’m improving my ability in that very moment, trying to control the flash of thoughts, i.e. “do I have a good hook set”, “rod tip high”, “lighten up on the tension”, etx., to enjoying the momentary connection, before the play begins!
Fantastic piece. Got out on the Neversink on opening day and the Willowemoc this afternoon. No trout and bitter cold. Wonderful none the less.
Great piece. A spring tradition is watching the striper migration report as they move up the east coast. Eagerly waiting their arrival
This is something I miss living In Florida — everything happens year round so you lose both anticipation and preparation. There isn’t the fly tying, cleaning, prepping winter season.
That said — Redfish in February are pretty great.
I also hit the river today. The fishing was cut short when my 6 year old fell through the ice- but since everyone made it home it was still a great day.
