I Went Fishing Yesterday
Sounds perfect, and I went fishing.
The new snow, that fell the day before, made for a truly beautiful winter environment. Arriving later than usual, I geared up and made my way to my favorite pool. Within four casts I had an eighteen inch rainbow with cheeks of crimson and fins as translucent as can be. Just a wonderful example of New England at her best. A nice part of catching this fish is because a new fly that I created did the trick. Half Feedinator and half Jailbird with a rib of burned Peacock Eye.
I had to leave. I didn't want to leave, but I had to get going.
This morning, as I tell you about this story, the front has passed, the temperature will be minus digits by tonight and winter will be holding the North Country captive for a few days. I'm looking for a moral to the story or a some reason that I could be so lucky. Let's just say I will be looking forward to the next Friday the Thirteenth.
