The deer are herding up in the fields behind the house, the sap is running at the sugar camps, and the ice is off the rivers. Time to get the rod and reel out. This summer I have made a pact to get fly fishing at least once. I have long been an avid angler using the bait and tackle methods but I have long wanted to try fly fishing. There is something artistic about the casting of a fly over open waters to entice that big brookie to rise to the surface. It takes a great deal more patience than what I have had in the past but as I am growing older my patience has matured and my appreciation for simply fishing for sport is much deeper.
That being said....I can't wait for fishing season to get here to NB.
