Looking ahead.....

I know that it's a bit early, but I'm looking ahead to next year. My wife and I have no weddings, major anniversary events, graduations, etc. slated for 2003, which means that I'll be able to fish more than I currently am. That being said, I want to see how much interest there would be in a couple of warm water claves.

First, a pike clave. Adrian, Roop and I explored some backwater areas of the CT and Salmon Rivers back in April, and I believe that this is an untapped flyfishery in these parts. I've continued my scouting and discovered through my own efforts and via the grapevine that there are more easy access, small craft friendly waters that will be full of pike next April. A great way to start things off.

Second, a bronzeback clave. I've seen it discussed here before, and I would really like to see this happen. There is some great smallie action here it CT, but I'm open to suggestions for other locales. The river fish here really don't get reliably active until late June, and dragging some salties away from the Cape might be a chore. If the interest is there, I say let's do it.

I'll bring this up again in the new year. I'll meister at least one (pike) and maybe both if they both fall in my location.

Food for thought. Any interest?
