It's Still Hot and We Continue to Leave the Trout Alone

It's been so long since I posted here I almost forgot my log in info.  Not that much has changed, the rivers are still quite low around these parts and too warm to fish.  The herons are having a field day from the looks of the marks on the trout holding tight in the clear waters.

We spent a while at the shore, swimming and beach bumming, and in the evenings caught a bunch of small bluefish.  The stripers either didn't want to cooperate, or they were further north.  It was a hell of a good time with family and friends.

After the shore, I came home and caught up at work for a few days before flying to Maine for a spell.  That was a blast.  Hot days on the water sailing around the islands off Acadia, cool nights with friends, good food and tasty adult beverages.   The lobster was as good as it gets. Then after tacking on an extra couple of days from work, we flew home and went back to the ho-hum of the office.  The good news is, I'm heading to Montana in a month with Mr. Q., who has never been there, so that should be a good kick in the arse!  I think he's going to have tied enough flies by then that his baggage will be over the weight limit! 

The good news is we're back in tying mode.  Last night we made a new tying video with Tightline Productions, which should be ready for human consumption in a week or so.  We'll be back to our regular schedule with the videos, so stay tuned.

Here's a few photos of the Maine trip for your viewing pleasure.  Not much, but what good is a post without pictures?  Hopefully, we'll be posting about our fishing adventures before too long!

Approaching Acadia ........


See you soon, and do a rain dance before you go to bed each night.
