SALISBURY — Edgar Giffenig barely has time to sit down for a bit of lunch, he’s that busy giving tennis lessons at the Norfolk Country Club and dealing with pulling together his second book about the sport.

And this, gentlemen, is how it’s done

KENT — Famed fly-fisherman Aaron Jasper (who normally lives and fishes in New Jersey) came to the Northwest Corner to teach a one-day clinic through Housatonic River Outfitters in Cornwall Bridge. After visiting several spots during the day on Saturday, May 6, the fishermen ended up at Kent Falls — where Jasper almost immediately nabbed a wild brook trout (“You can tell it’s wild by looking at its fins,” he said).
He caught the brookie using a nymph rod with a 10-foot 4 weight and a stone fly.
