After an on-the-dock consultation as to what our prospects might be, Geoge T., Charlie W., and I fished the early afternoon. Sunny, air temp in the high 50°s, water in the River was 55°, which is marginal for bluefish, but 60° out on the Sound, so there was a possibility that a few hardy blues might still be hanging about.
There were a half-dozen wade-fishermen on the bars as it was dead low tide. Didn’t see them catch anything, but we marveled at one fly fisherman on the Milford side casting directly into the 20-kt wind. Life would have been a lot easier for him had he gone over to Short Beach in Stratford and had the wind at his back. But fly fishermen are a different breed.
I sent an email to Charlie telling him that George has changed my ideas about living to age 90. If we can do it the way he's done it, in such good mental and physical shape...maybe it’s worth considering.
Another great day on the water.
