I grew up in Middlebury, CT...fishing farm ponds for bass. I miss it.
I picked up flyfishing much later, just before college actually, and that is when I got introduced to the Housy and Farmington. I learned to flyfish, fishing for smallmouth on the Housy. What a blast!! One of my first times fishing for trout was during the whitefly. It was out of control...again something I'll never forget. Had one great weekend on the Farmington a couple weeks back as well. Was driving up by the covered bridge this past weekend, but the levels looked pretty low.
Perhaps we can hook up sometime; I'm always looking for someone to head out with when I head down to visit my parents.
