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.

It Is REALLY Winter!!!!



Saturday morning, at 7am the temperature registered -14 degrees. It was the coldest Massachusetts morning in my memory which goes back decades but has a tendency to forget bad ass events like this. Very cold was the word. The temperature reading for the Swift River gauge read 34 degrees and I was tempted to take a ride to the Swift to see if ice had skimmed the Tree Pool but found other things to do like buying a Chromecast setup, answering emails and tying flies. Believe it or not, people are thinking of this Spring and booking days with me on our three rivers. Traditionally this is cabin fever time and if you don't live close to the Swift or the Farmington you may not survive that aliment unless ice fishing does it for you. It doesn't for me! Thank God for the Swift!!!

I have a fly or three that I'd like to share with you soon. I'll also be packing bags for Florida for the last week of this dreadful month for a week of R&R. EASTERN FLY FISHING MAGAZINE ran a good article of Sebastian Florida and its fly fishing. It's not far from where I will be so I'm checking this place out! I will be on the Swift next weekend if the elements allow.


Thought I'd show two Winter photos of the Swift and one BALMY-DAY-IN-LATE-MAY photo just to remind you that all of this weather will end in 3 or so months. Keep the Faith!!
