More than fish…

More than fish…

I recently spent the day fishing with some good friends in an area that we had heard held some really big trout, maybe trophy size. We met at the site, parked the cars and geared up for a day on the water. The small talk was almost non-existent as we hurried to put on our waders and get to the water. We had bigger things on our minds. Approaching the water we noticed several different types of bugs on and around the water. Matching the hatch was going to be anyone’s guess

The Red Brook crew wanted to get out and use our new RBT One tenkara rods but we only had a small window of time so we decided to visit Town Brook in Plymouth, MA today.

We all have those sacred “secret” fishing spots that we don’t like to share with the general public. We think that if we keep quiet about those special locations then they’ll remain special. We have fears that other people will discover them and over fish them.

Today the RBT crew visited one of our “secret” spots and we brought along a trusted friend. 


Testing our new rods…

Last Sunday… testing the prototype rods and looking for some good fishing spots for Salters (sea-run brook trout). No fish but we did get some good casting/testing done. The warmer weather is here… time to get out there and have some fun.

Some people may laugh at the idea of urban fishing in and around Boston for any fish, never mind fly fishing for trout. A lot of people believe you have to drive at least a couple of hours from the city to find decent fly fishing. Of course, driving a few hours from Boston may put you onto some of the best fly fishing in the region but that doesn’t mean you can’t find decent fishing closer to home.
