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.

Brook Trout!

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...

Trips come in bunches that is for sure and lately I have been on a teaching fly fishing kick. Several learn to fly fish trips last week and an afternoon of teaching fly casting at Sweetgrass Winery to round out the week.

Eaglets out of the nest!

June 09, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

It is easy to mark the progression of the season by the things that happen outdoors and today was one of those annual milestones. I was on a striper fishing trip and in the course of the morning passed three eagle nests. Fishing near the first nest I could see two heads over the side for a few minutes. As we passed the second both chicks were out of the nest perched on a nearby limb.

Loons up close

June 06, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

The best of spring fishing is underway with sight fishing for nesting bass; great fun with a fly rod. As I move along the shoreline searching for those beds I meet the loons who are right now searching out their nesting sites. I see at least a few every trip out some near familiar nest sites others in places I am surprised to see them.

Lost?

June 01, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

I had the day off and the weather was perfect. A fishing trip was in order; after all I do not always get to have a rod in my hands on such a perfect morning. I fished Quantabacook Lake in Searsmont; I fish there every few years and rarely with clients because it is so far away to make into a half day trip.
