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:

• 2-year-old Abby Wood,   14-inch bass

A typical dry-dropper rig includes a high-visibility, buoyant dry fly like a Stimulator and a weighted nymph on a dropper. The dropper is attached directly to the bend of the hook on the top fly with a clinch knot. Your mileage will definitely vary. Photo by Patrick L. Sullivan​

The fisherman ‘goes deep’ on dry-droppers

The situation: The angler approaches the little blue line cautiously. The angler, disregarding the stiff joints and aching back, creeps up behind the boulder and peers at the plunge pool. The angler ties on a dry fly, and ever so carefully drops it right where the spooky wild brook trout is probably hiding.
