Val nailed it

Last time I went fishing with Val I tried all morning to get a shot of her with the rod tip forward and the line in the air and just starting to roll out on the forward cast. She nailed it on one shot.

I hear the Styx River has Fish.

Creakycane mentioned church, are you fishing church pool on the Farmington? Man do I miss the Farmington! I haven’t had the pleasure for I hate to say almost 40 yrs.

I fished the Farmington this past June, brought back some nice memories. Little bastards were still picky as heck though! I was rewarded with a nice one on a "Usual" though! Some things dont change. That river gets a lot of pressure but it sure is nice the way the state has kept it preserved and in better condition.

Never have I seen so much pressure on the Farmington fish as this year. It still fished well too. Says a lot about what Niel Hagstrom at the CT DEEP established. He and his cohorts deserve our everlasting thanks.
