Had a great client today. He learned to Euro-Nymph and improved his dry fly fishing. Caught lots of fish on the Farmington today both on nymphs and dries.

So, a client that I took fishing last year, contacted me via email and said that he felt bad because he had not tipped me. He said that he found out recently that it was customary to tip a guide if he learned from the guide. He went on to tell me that his nymphing skills had been greatly improved and that he bought a copy of my book and had found a lot of fantastic places to fish. He was offering to send me a tip in the mail. While I was very appreciative of that, I told him that it was unnecessary and that it was rewarding enough for me to know that he had improved his fishing and benefited somehow from my book. I usually to get tipped. I have had clients double my fee as a tip after having excellent days of fishing. This does not always happen however people should realize that guides work very hard and even if you don't catch fish, you are still walking away with years of knowledge that the guide has just instilled in you. That knowledge will help you to catch fish in the future.

I had to get Paul Eles out into the wild today. We both caught our fair share of wild Connecticut brook and brown trout but he got this exceptionally pretty colored brown trout. Still gettin it done in his seventies !!

One of the rarest fish in the state of Connecticut. This salter brook trout was caught today in the tidal section of a very small, unstocked, unrecognized wild trout stream. It is perhaps the only one in the state with clear passage to the sea from its headwaters. I haven't caught a brookie anywhere in this stream in more than 30 years and believed they were extirpated. So glad I was wrong.
