The world is going through one of the greatest pandemics of our lifetime. The Covid-19 virus has spread globally, and citizens everywhere are experiencing different levels of isolation. The new buzz word is “social distancing” and is a nice way of saying to avoid everyone.

The Brook Trout That Wore Sandals

The Brook Trout That Wore Sandals

brookI just returned from another great trip to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. I took Friday off work and headed up to meet some friends for some camping and some fly fishing. There were only four of us going on this trip and we all had different schedules so we were all arriving at different times. It reminds me of the movie Swingers, where they all take separate cars.

It’s been extremely hot and humid during the second half of summer and I needed to get to cooler water and some good size fish.  It was a cloudy morning in the high 70’s and there were threats of a possible thunderstorm. I got to the river around 10:30 AM which was later than I hoped but some things can’t be helped. When I arrived, the small lot was pretty full so I decided to park across the street.
