Camping & Fishing

I was finally able to get away for a weekend of camping & fishing on the Farmington River. I used to live close enough to the Farmy to fish it almost daily during the season, but now it requires a day trip or overnight to really enjoy the experience and have a reasonable amount of time on […]

A Grand Slam On The Still River

As part of the weekend’s camping and fishing program, I decided to explore some new water. Originally the plan was to fish the Farmington, but the prior night’s storm caused the wind and water to be a little too high to be enjoyable, so I thought the Still would be a good small stream option.

For the past few weeks I’ve had the Sage CIRCA 379-4 fly rod,  Sage Click III fly reel and RIO Trout LT WF3F line sitting in my closet waiting to be used on a trout stream.  Due to the heavy amount of rain that we’ve received, the rivers have been too blown out for any small stream trout fishing.
