In which the wily trout continue to surprise our fly-fishing expert…

It’s baseball’s All-Star midseason break so let us take a similar look at the fly-fishing season thus far.

Much of the early going was spent on what us professional fly-fishing scribes refer to as “little blue lines” — those thin blue squiggles on the map that may or may not have a name and may or may not hold wild trout.

A trip on a hot day to the Scottish Highlands at LRP

LIME ROCK — The weather wasn’t really appropriate for a Scottish festival: humidity and 90 degree temperatures aren’t really the thing for men and women wearing wool kilts and competing in trials of strength that include tossing telephone pole-sized cabers and 13-pound rocks.

What the well-dressed angler is wearing

Two weeks ago, after a long, chilly, wet “spring,” it suddenly turned into summer. I dutifully folded and stored the flannels and Viyellas and big old Filson wool shirts, and dug out and hung the madras, seersucker, aloha and summery shirts.

Then the temps dropped like a tungsten head nymph tied on a jig hook. Of course.

This summer, baseball will be by region not by town

Instead of the traditional spring baseball offered across the Region One School District, the six towns have come together to offer a supplemental regional summer baseball program, focusing more on skill development than competitive edge.

The junior fishing tourney

NORTH CANAAN — The Northwest Connecticut Rod and Gun Club held its junior fishing tournament on Sunday, May 16. 

“What a gorgeous day it was,” reported an enthusiastic Holly Hunt. “We had 76 kids sign up, and winners in six age groups.” 

The results:
