Striper thumb...denied!

Went to throw some flies at one of my favorite shore spots at the mouth of the CT River last night...the tides weren't prime, but okay for prospects of latching onto the first striper of the season. Unfortunately, wind was directly from the east and pushed mung and other flotsam right into the area, reducing visibility and making clean retrieves difficult.

I ventured to the eastern side of the river, knowing full well that my spots over there were far off of their ideal tides. My expectations were low, and rightly so. No dice, and words from other fishermen that I was about 4 hours past the prime tidal stage (as I had already suspected).

Noticed some subtle structure changes, and saw more terns in one spot than I have ever seen in all of my time put together there. Gulls are common, but terns are usually scarce, and none of them had moustaches.

Next time...
