Brook Trout Love

May 21, 2010

– Trolling Wednesday evening was not nearly as productive as I had hoped, but it certainly wasn’t a total loss. As the sun fell behind the hills and the last bit of light hung on for dear life, Mr. Morin managed to pull a pesky Brook Trout from the water before we called it a night. While another fish-less night certainly weighs heavy on my mind, the simple fact that no one seems to be catching much of anything these days definitely makes it more bearable. Like any fly fisherman, I’ve opted to blame this fish-less outing on my gear.

I may be out of luck, but I’ll never be out of excuses.

A weekend of fishing, and only 4 days until a big Allagash camping trip should produce some decent fish. If it doesn’t, I may need some serious bass therapy.

I can’t believe I just said that.
