Autumn On The EB

Autumn On The EB
Fly Fishing The Millers - With over 30 years of fly fishing this river I will claim more knowledge and fish caught than anyone. There are over 40 miles of river and I will take you to the best sections and if you want to sections that never see another angler. Don't be fooled by those who say the Millers is a Spring and Fall river. I'll show you how to have great Summer action. The "EB of the Westfield" - Wild and beautiful is the only way to describe this river. There's a lot of water here but I know where to go to catch trout. After a trip you will too!! Solitude and trout IS the EB. The Swift - 20 trout days are not uncommon on this river if you know what to do and use. I'll show the way and you catch the trout. RATES - Full Day (6 hours) = $150.00 for one, $225 for two (lunch included). Half Day (three hours) $90.00 for one, $155.00 for two. Beginners Class - 3 hours ffor $90.00, all use of rods lines, reels included.

The Farmington - Trip Number 2

Saturday, March 21, found me working the Church Pool of the Farmington River again. Things started off great with a 14 inch brown falling for an olive emerger on about the fifth cast. It was just like I had been dreaming about all week.

AND THAT WAS IT!! The cold and the wind kept the insects down and that kept the trout down. It also kept the flyfishers down too. The three longrodders that you see in this photo represented the bulk of humanity that I saw on the river. Two of these gents were tossing big, weighted nymphs (?) under even bigger indicators. I saw three fish taken between them in the four or so hours. I just couldn't bring myself to work that set up. I wanted to FLYFISH in a traditional way.

Time for a break. I'll be heading out very early Friday morning for a short trip to the Dominican Republic. Some sun, some fun, some cigars and maybe some fishing. I'll be back late on 4/1 and fully expect the Swift and the Millers to be totally fishable and the air full of Hendricksons!!!

See ya later,

Enjoy your trip to the DR, but you must have meant 5/1, not 4/1 for those Hendricksons!
bon voyage,

I'm also expecting the Millers and the Swift to be fishable by then. Like the Hendricksons, a bit too much to ask for.

maybe by May 1, the Swift might even be fishable.

I hope the Swift will be fishable
