Odds 'n' Sods of Information and Opinion

Cape Cod first evening

After a marathon drive we made it to the cottage around 4 PM. Unloaded into the cottage, got a bit of food in us, then off to Morris Island.

We picked that location thanks to the stiff north wind that was blowing. We started at the bottom of the stairs as the bluffs gives us some protection.

I had decided on using the PRO 4X 9 wt. switch with an Airflo 9 wt. Sniper floater and a big, black gurgled. First cast I’m into a fish in the low 20s. How often does that happen? I take this as a bad omen. Sure enough, the rest of the evening is spent playing tag with little fish that kept missing the hook on that big fly.

So ended the first day.
