Here are some photos from a recent outing on the Deerfield river. The fish are a little lethargic this time of year in the middle of the day and the heat coming up next week should make the action a little slower. There are fish. You just have to know where to look… Good hunting.
I took a little vacation with my wife and some friends on Chappaquiddick, a small island off of Martha’s Vineyard. We stayed in an off the grid cabin with just enough solar panels to charge the water pump and the fridge. It felt good to unplugged for a bit. The fishing was pretty poor. The only fish landed was a 17″ striper. Schoolies are still fun to catch but I was really hoping for that 30 pounder, maybe next year. Good times.
My wife and I have a small business called Tandem Ceramics. We joined our mediums, printmaking + pottery into clever functional ceramic with one-of-a-kind nature inspired imagery for the home. Recently we launched our online website where you can have our work shipped right to your door. Needless to say, we are very excited!
I spent the better half of a week in the Adirondacks, one of my favorite places to fish in the world. So much water to cover up there. Lakes, rivers, bogs and mountain creeks. The variety of fish that are in that park are amazing. We were focusing on tiger muskie and bass on the fly. Big fish, big flies. Mouse patterns and huge weedless streamers. Leave the 5 wt at home when fishing for these bad boys. We were throwing a 7wt rod with large arbor reel and metal leader tippet. Good God what a time. The largest tiger was around 34″ long and the largest bass weighed 6 1/2 lbs. What a memorable vacation with family and friends.
