Tosh Brown and I have been working on making an idea for a book project a reality. A “large format pictorial on fly-fishing the Northeast coast” won’t work without large format-worthy pictures. So we’re blasting our way through some of the fall run this week.
We’re in the middle of fishing around New York Metro and surrounding salt, with Tosh working the lens.
My hands are a mess. I took another 4/0 VMC in the hand past the barb. Removed it and fished the rest of the night. Had 20 fish in 3 hours. I was so tired at the end that it felt like the rock I was on was moving.”
Thursday is likely my last day on the water for 2008. Unless I can somehow find time to get out during the herring run or it gets really cold in December and I can hit the outflow at the Stacks. I was supposed to be on the water today but for the stupid jerkbag clipper system gale warnings.
It’s been a strange fall for Northeast salt and if the pattern continues next year, I’m moving to Montauk.
