Scott Trichka and I wandered deep into the Connecticut woods to one of my favorite unrecognized wild trout streams. In all of the years that I have been fishing this little gem, I have never seen another living sole. Lots of wild browns today, many between 16 and 18". Solitude and wild trout..............

I had the absolute pleasure guiding three great guys on the Farmington on Sunday. All family men that served in different branches of the armed services. Steve had some fly fishing experience while Chris and Zach had very little. I gave them a quick casting lesson, explained a few things to them and out on the river went. I had everything rigged and ready for them so as I was getting Chris and Zach fishing, Steve was hooking fish. The boys picked it up quickly and all did well for the rest of the morning. Chris caught this great brown after my departure. I received a nice e-mail with this pic from them conveying their appreciation for the knowledge and confidence that I was able to instill in them. They caught fish after I left, spent the night at Legends Lodge and caught fish Monday as well. It gives me great satisfaction to know that they will catch fish when they hit the river in the future. Fish on..........

Attention all fishermen: This message contains graphic content. Viewer discretion is advised. What you will see in the following pics is the result of someone leaving their rod on top of a vehicle. Never lean a rod against or place a rod on top of a vehicle. If you need to put the rod down near the car, place it on the windshield on the drivers side so that you never need to experience this. I have seen this happen dozens of times. Thankfully, my father taught me this simple rule and I have never experienced this dilemma.

I am in possession of someone's fly rod that I found up on the Farmington River near the campground. The good news is that I have your fly rod, the bad news is that it was run over by a car. If you lost a fly rod today and you want it back, contact me.

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.
