Yesterday was just too nice, and I seem to have recovered some from the massive cold I have had- Gussa and I headed to Wilson's on Moosehead for the afternoon of fishing, and an evening of watching high school football, followed by a Sunday morning of fishing in the rain.

The brook trout have NOT moved from where they were, and Gussa landed 5 in 5 casts Saturday afternoon. I did less. Some nice salmon found in other areas of the river, and a good afternoon was had. Football--- ehh.

This morning, I expected cold weather and wet rain...but it actually was kind of bright out for about an hour. Great fun in the middle of the river- but not on streamers.

By late morning, Gussa and I knew we needed an end on fish- and we went to the trout spot....and stupidly, and arrogantly (I expect-though I did not mean it that way)- we spoke to 4 fishers who were in the river, and I said that the area we were about to fish was very good for stockers, and we just wanted one fish each. Gussa made a bet w/ me that he could land his fish in 3 casts....it took 7. I ended in 2.

When we turned to go, the 4 guys were already moving toward that spot- and Gussa, in a burst of generosity, gave them some flies that matched what we were using to effect. Of course, Gussa has never- not ever-tied one fly. But he does enjoy handing them out!

Just a bonus weekend, and not an expected one.

Were I able, I would go back. Fishing, in my opinion, will hold up for another 2 weeks. Think soft hackles.


Time to tie- Best wishes.
