How not to be seen…

Here is a grab bag of thoughts as we lurch into the fall fishing season:

Dressing appropriately is important, especially as it starts to get cooler. I am always reluctant to resume the waders, and will go as late into the season as I can wet wading.

Studio Lakeville to move fitness to Interlaken Inn

LAKEVILLE — Studio Lakeville is a beautiful building at the intersection of the roads to Millerton,  Salisbury and Sharon, in Lakeville. Once the old firehouse, with three large opening doors, now windows, the building was refurbished by contractor Seth Churchill.

Fishing for panfish in the grim mid-summer

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re having a drought.

Take a look at your nearest babbling brook. Pretty low, isn’t it?

Or check out the Housatonic River. Better yet, get in it without waders. It’s bathtub warm.

At least Mother Nature has cheesed it with the super-hot weather.

Gridlife drifts into Lime Rock

LIME ROCK — A new motorsports association, Gridlife, made its first appearance at Lime Rock Park in Salisbury on Friday, Aug. 19, and Saturday, Aug. 20.

Based largely in the Midwest, Gridlife had its first event in 2014, and has visited tracks countrywide including Road Atlanta and Willow Springs in California.

Introducing Mongo: Fixed line meets big fish

The last few years I have spent more and more time using the telescoping, fixed line, no-reel fly rods that come under the umbrella term “Tenkara.”

Devotees spend hours arguing the nuances and nomenclature for different kinds of fixed line rods, and since few of them speak Japanese I suspect they are still missing something.
