Maine Fall Trip...Part I

Well...As I'm sure you've seen...Maine was a success...

We left Wednesday evening and made the 9 hour drive into CT to drop Finn off at G-ma B's house. Since we were dealing with some last minute obligations at the house, the time at the bench was cut down, and certain flies weren't made...

Until...





We got a little creative with an in car bench. Not that it was easy to do each whip finish...but we were able to get 8 1/2 flies out without too much trouble in the 1.5 hours that Amy drove...

turns out that they proved fruitful...

Thursday we headed up North and did a little shopping for a tremendous dinner feast that Amy threw together.



We headed back to Greg & Emilia's house and settled in for the evening with some Samuel Adams & a cozy warm fire...along with a big JUNEAU! More on him...

Friday was fish day...and you know what that meant...



Meet Juneau...120+ lbs of pure fish love...



And while we fished...he kept busy...




Until the trouts were caught...

And now the players...at least some...








Greg & Juneau...Nymphing a run...


View from the dock...surf casting on Sebago...

More coming...Pictures and story TBC...
