Pre-breakfast Bass

With the local weather forecast looking less than certain, I decided to make an early morning run to a local pond for some kayak fishing. I was on the water by 6 am, and had the place to myself for 2 hours. While many ponds in the area have already become choked with lilies, this […]

First Fish of 2015

It was a long, cold winter in Connecticut, and spring came like molasses. Today it reached into the low 60’s so I headed to the local bass pond with a 4wt and some poppers.

February Postfly Box

My February Postfly box for bass arrived earlier this week, with new bass flies to try, if spring ever gets here! They all look good but this pencil popper caught my eye. My amateur photography doesn’t do it justice. This guy looks like more of a saltwater fly, but I’ll put him in the lineup. The box is […]

January PostFly Box

My January Postfly box arrived, with six new bass flies to try after the spring melt. They all look good but this guy  might be especially fishy. The stickers are always a welcome surprise. The box is a mix of topwater and subsurface bass bugs. Most of the flies in this box have weedless collars, […]

Lake Kenoshia Revisited

A few weeks ago we shot the second episode of On The Fly at Lake Kenoshia in Danbury CT. While we caught fish, it wasn’t exactly spectacular. On Sunday I had an opportunity to give it a second chance. It did not disappoint. Almost from the first cast I was into fish. The winds forced […]

Once again, Frank DeGrazio from the Angler’s Den came out and gave some great insight and instruction. This time we focused on warmwater […]

Bass After The Rain

I really need to check the weather app on my phone more often. For Saturday afternoon, I planned a quick kayak fishing trip to a local lake. It was the first day of the year that you could comfortably wear shorts, and my cadaver-white legs were in need of some sun and exercise. I unloaded […]

A Day of Spring

For most of us in New England, spring has been slow in coming this year.  April continued to deliver snow and cold, and the heavy rains of the past two days have left us with with flooding, washed out roads and streams swollen with water that could be easily mistaken for chocolate milk. But May […]

My First Fish of 2014

Saturday was opening day of trout season in Connecticut. My first fish was  . . . not a trout. That’s right. Instead of hitting a local river for rainbows, browns and brookies, I spent most of the day waiting for a plumber to arrive and unclog a bathroom sink. The first plumber I called promised […]
