Fly Fishing

I was mesmerized by the fly fishermen at Ken Lockwood Gorge, NJ.  They reminded me of my dad who says I converted him into a fly fisherman but hon, if I did, it was an accident.  I bought him a fishing book years ago and it turned out to be about fly fishing.  Now, his fly tying kit sits in his den and his waders stand at the ready (see post:  “Lost in a Fishing Boot” under the “Think Tank” category).

I wanted to send out a new post before Hurricane Sandy hits.  She’s supposed to hit New Jersey hard and she’s supposed to make landfall soon.  In anticipation of losing power for awhile, school’s been cancelled for two days, we have taken down our Halloween decorations, moved anything not bolted down, and stocked up on water and non-perishable foods.  So, for all of my international followers–I’ll let you know how it goes.  And for all of my mid-atlantic region followers, hope you fare well!

  1. I hope and pray you and your family are safe as well as your community. I saw the news. It is scary and for those who will loose power, it’s going to be hard considering the drop in temperatured. Beautiful images. I was moved when you mentioned your dad and how you introduce fly fishing to him and how now the fishing pole rest, waiting. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week. Best wishes to you and your family.


  2. Rosanne, I guess I should clarify–those pics are of other fishermen. I loved their gear, dedication and watching them cast their lines in the water. Thanks for the well wishes–hoping our power stays on!


    1. Aunt Suzanne, thanks so much for commenting! We have prepped the house and the kitchen so now we wait. The sky was yellow/ green today and the air was strange, too. I’ll let you know how things turn out.
