    Last coho of the season. Saltwater took a chunk out of the boat trailer which also then destroyed the hull haul out ring. Got some work to do before we move north next month.

    Despite really low water levels, cooler water temps and fish can still be found in eastern CT

    Stalking browns in NZ.

    I am totally new to fly fishing and fish stalking and NZ rivers. I caught a few 0.5lb browns spinning across shallow tannin water flowing over rock. Zero on the fly - a lot to learn. I was not really into the whole stalking thing. Then after a few days started to get the idea, moving up river and targeting places fish would feed. But still not really feeling the vibe. Didn't really feel like I was fishing. Then I came up behind what looked like a 2.5lb dude just picking up nymphs in a downstream protected pocket. Suddenly was all pretty exciting, and I was crawling up behind him and casting from my knees. He swerved out to look at my nymph, and a few casts later I spooked him. Then all I wanted to do was stalk more of them! I felt the vibe.

    I doubt I'll catch anything on a fly until I go out with someone who knows what they are doing. It is amazing the difference in skill and catch rate.

    I found some beautiful road side water, and hiked into an incredible river. An amazingly pretty walk for several miles of rapids and pools. It is great what you can find when you get out a map and drive down country roads.

    i used to worries more about catchin
    tills i reaized it was a lifelong journey of an addiction i caught
    don't gets me wrong the catchin is the actualization or sum total of doing shit right and failing aint always fun
    but the prep, the location, the choice of weapons, the stalk, the cast ,presentation, the eat, the set, the hookup, the line control, the fight and everything else brings me about as much pleasure these days as does watching others do it right.
    try n enjoy the journey and learning and fuckups as much as the final fulfillment of the act.
    thats some serious coolwater
    and nice poopfish stokes stapes

    got one with





    39 degrees at 8ish didn't have em movin much

    picked up a bit once the sun cleared the peaks

    majority tight to shore and flooded cattails and timber
    spent a couple hours fuckin up, splashdown spook casting and a foot to much distance into shore snagglefuckin
    a few foul hooks on mudboils and tailers
    turns out they were stacked up pretty good on the inlet side up in the water column cruising or stationary sunning

    which happens to be the tightest and timberest
    gots one


    managed to keep him from spookin the rest of the pod and put his ass in the nets



    tossed the next one a foot or so off where i wanted it to be stripped er and was rewarded with the triple tail pump
    full commitment 30"er eat
    fucked up and tried to pull him out instead of chasing him down and he took advantage to bush me into a rub off of the unhappy endings and spooked the rest
    took a break tossed a few from shore and gave em an hour or so to chill
    before heading back to score one more




    started doin a bit of ski season ass needs to go uphill and get in shape stuffs
    i likes it when there is a reward of piscatorial pursuit at the tops

    Should be a most excellent time, SFB, Lumpy, and myself in so far. Free camping, good fishing, good people, and good food, it doesn't get much better.

    Just finished the annual FL trip with my dad and brother. The old man landed a 22# redfish. His biggest fish ever, not bad at 75.

    Hallowed weenies weekend was all time. The Fonts gave up the goods like usual. Only regret was buying the Friday license thinking Sunday would be rain. Ended up drinking Friday and Sunday dawned beautiful. Thought about on lining a license but the weekend of dirty dishes and trailer disarray was calling me.

    Two Slate laps while moseying made for a fantastic way to end the camping season.
