Please drive safely this weekend.
"If you're heading out of town over the Fourth of July holiday weekend: take care. An analysis by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has found that July 4 has been the deadliest day on the road in recent years."

Charlie W. had a good day out with some fellows who troll the tube and worm.
This fish scaled about 40 pounds.
Would have been a lot of fun on a 7-wt.
Val S. and I were out on Thursday afternoon. Wind was very bad and we had to hug the shore.
Caught a few stripers but nothing picture-worthy. It would be pretty hard to follow the pic of Charlie's fish anyway.
The lighthouse is always photogenic.
Heron resting on the breakwater.
Heading back up the River.
Don’t forget, a 2010 saltwater fishing license is required to fish the marine waters of Connecticut. Also, if you intend to fish above the Merritt Parkway bridge on the Housatonic River, you also need a Connecticut freshwater license. You can purchase these from your local bait & tackle shop, such as Newtown Bait & Tackle, or at Town/City Hall.
