Spring - It's Almost Here And A Sunday At Charlie's
SPRING - At 6am this past Sunday morning I saw a cat walking across the frozen Mill River which runs behind my house. At 6am on Monday the ice was gone, replaced with a raging torrent that was the fourth highest flow recorded on that river. The snow pack behind my yard shrank by at least ten inches in those 24 hours and now I see the sap lines and buckets on my daily travels. There are more birds singing at dawn. Spring is unofficially here and that is a very good thing. I'll hit the Swift this week to get the kinks out of my cast and to just be on the water. It's been a LONG winter.
Two things to look forward to - I'll be at Charlie's EVENING SUN FLY SHOP at noon on Sunday, March 20th. I'll be showing a presentation on the Bondsville section of the Swift and some sections less cast to on the Millers. It will be a good time to get some information for the coming season. BRING A PEN AND PAPER to write down some directions!!
Second, I'm working on an added feature. I hope to throw it on the blogosphere by the end of the month after those kinks are worked out. Stay tuned!!
