More uplifting news: for the next four days I will have only three things on my mind: good fishing, good food, and great company in Roscoe NY. The Connecticut Fly Angler is finally going to catch fish in NY, having caught fish in CT and PA but always skipping over what is arguably the best fly fishing state on the East Coast. I'm still working on packing right now:
Of course I fished a bit over the last couple days, including hunting for bass and pickerel in a lake I hadn't fished in a good five or six years and fishing the salmon for a little while, which is flowing much more healthily now due to the rain.
