anything but "still"

The Stillwater was really pumpin' due to all the rain. Talking to those who were having success "yesterday" the flows were double or nearly three times the volume before the rain.

Pine needles and leaves were heavy in the water but there were plenty of fish rolling down around the mouth.

Terry, GregO, Domenic and Nate concentrated on the lower section then up around the Singing Bridge as the rain pounded harder and harder. I think the infusion of so much rainwater, dirt, plant material and fishermen (the place was packed) got the fish into an accelerated move to the upper reaches.

Talked to one fly guy who caught one about 18" on a bright streamer. Other than that we did not see a fish caught even by the garden hackle crowd.

It was great to walk through the wooded trails and peek through the birches at rushing currents. Don't get me wrong I love sand and surf, but trout fishing is so fundamentally part of fly fishing. I think we all felt that being there.

Boy Dom is really happy with that 4wt 4pc Sage XP... I cast it at the show and was not just impressed but amazed how a finesse rod can have so much oooomph to it without being stiff.

GregO, Terry and I had a great breakfast at a West Boylston Diner and a chat with the bait and tackle shop owner before getting back to our long-forgotten families.

It was good to see some of the ol' gang and also some new faces who I hope come on board to say hello.

It was kinda late to be getting started with my trout season but I won't be so foolish as to ignore the Stillwater, Quinipoxet, and other waters so close to home next season.
