Bill’s Fly Fishing Blog for July 2, 2012. Upper Connecticut River, Pittsburg NH
So what can I say, my hands are bloody my neck, back and shoulders are sore and some of my gear is still wet not to mention that my truck smells of stinky wet gear, those who have passion know that smell. It’s not to bad just put the windows down first thing in the a.m. and crank the heater. As always the fishing has been fantastic and as always been all over the place and some places out of necessity. This week we had some rain and the rivers got dark and high, we’ve needed the rain it’s been a spell since we’ve had any real rain. This was a good one it put water into the system and cooled down the temps nicely. The water is back to normal and I drifted yesterday with great success. I know the local areas had been hit hard this weekend but even with that the fishing this morning was still great.
I am very thankful for all your generosity and very thankful for being your guide. Anything we could certainly do for you all please let us know.
PEACE, tight lines BILL
