The Great Hendrickson Hunt – June 6, 2014

June 6th, 2014 – The Hendrickson Hunt continues.  The Hendricksons are hatching up and down the Kennebec River Valley.  Well, at least from Bingham down to Fairfield. I admit since I discovered them on the Shawmut Section I haven’t gone further North than Bingham to fish them.  They will be stopping soon in Shawmut and […]

The Great Hendrickson Hunt – May 30, 2014

May 30, 2014 – I found the Hendricksons or perhaps I should say they found me.  Weekly I’ve been going over to the Little Ossipee River in search of an early Hendrickson hatch.  Never found it. I found Hendrickson Nymphs but never saw one in the air or on the water.  On my last trip […]

The Great Hendrickson Hunt – May 9, 2014

Big March Browns like this one danced over the […]

01/17/14 – Hey – how am I supposed to know this is Friday not Thursday – I’m retired. So a day late but here goes. A couple of weeks ago I posted about a bill that placed some needed restrictions on Gold Dredging here in Maine.  It was a first step and now it’s time […]

01/09/14 – World’s Best Fly Box

01/09/14 – Ahhhh……………the search continues for the World’s Best Fly Box.  Something I’m convinced doesn’t exist.  There are lots of them out there.  Yep, all kinds – thick ones, thin ones – metal ones, plastic ones – and all of them are the “Best” when I buy them but it isn’t long before I find […]
