Geared up fo Spring!

Suppossedly it is Spring, but you sure wouldn't know it with the recent weather. Regardless, most of the behind the scenes work is finished with the boat and I am geared up to fish.  Was hoping to start fishing earlier this week, but got put off by that freak snowstorm and it has blown a gale ever since.

Finally splashed the boat yesterday and gave it a try.  Water conditons are good on the Susquehanna Flats, but temps are still real cold.   41.8 degrees was the warmest water I could find yesterday, though the 25 kt wind sure didn't help. The good news is that visibility is good and the long term weather forecast looks favorable.  I will be at it every day now that is fit, and hope to be catching fish in the next few days.  Last year we had the first good fishing on March 22, so we are at least a week behind this year.  I will keep you posted.

Tie Fest 2013, National capital TU Shows

Anxiously awaiting Spring!  Spent the last few weekends working fly fishing shows.  Helped showcase G.loomis gear in Lancaster at the Fly Fishig Show the first weekend this month.  Spent last weekend at the CCA sponsored Tie Fest even in Kent Island on Saturday, and the Natinal Capital Chapter of  Trout Unlimited Angling show on Sunday.

Spoke with many folks and casted lots of rods at the recent shows.  Hope to see some of you out on the river or boat this Spring.

The Susquehanna Flats Catch and Release Striped bass season is but a week or two away.  I have been busy rigging the boat and gear and wil be otu trying it sometime next week.  I will keep you posted on the fishing.  Jeff
