Mid-Summer Fishing News

July 10, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

The week that I wait all year for is here. The bass are taking dragonflies on the surface of our local ponds. I spent this morning on Megunticook Lake in Camden and after a little time figuring out the right color and getting the leader long enough the fishing was fabulous.

By Don Kleiner

Today I was fishing with a couple from Texas, they vacation here every summer but up until now have stayed on the coast. Yes they had driven inland some but not really spent any time outdoors like they did today.

The Berkshire SEASON Is Upon Us

June 29, 2014

 

Tanglewood

Many call it The Tanglewood Season.

And it certainly is.   Tanglewood has been drawing about a half a million people to the area per year since 1937.   Those patrons, educated and cultured, are the reason a number of other options have sprung up over the decades:

THEATER:   Berkshire Theatre Festival.  Williamstown Theater Festival.  Shakespeare & Company.  Barrington Stage Company...

Great way to spend a rainy morning

June 25, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

The forecast was less than promising for this morning the later it got the more likely rain was. This morning’s clients were not deterred, although they were delighted to hear that I had rain gear on board.

June 19, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

I do trout fishing trips on a very limited basis, mostly because it is a shoulder season fishery in this part of the state. Trout like cold water and are most active here in the spring and late fall. Sometimes though a client is intent on trout fishing like today and I am glad for the opportunity.

The Berkshires Hailed for Romance

June 17, 2014

 

Lauded for its natural beauty and elegance, the Berkshires have long been featured as a must-see location. Nestled amongst the dreamlike setting of rolling hills and bright red barns, it’s no surprise that the area has been featured on many Top 10 lists, including Travel + Leisure’s own, “America’s Most Romantic Winter Destinations.” Forbes, in their “10 Unexpectedly Romantic Cities,” found it impossible to name only one town, instead including the entire region in their feature. And even the...
