Nor’easter Finally Breaks

blog-June-2-2015-1-flyfishing-for-smallmouthThe dreadful springtime nor’easter lasted all the way till this afternoon.  Granny and I have been freezing at camp and going stir crazy not being able to fish.  We’ve found ourselves at the local establishments more than once having some afternoon beers.  At 3 PM, despite a 48° high temperature, we boarded the canoe for a few hours of fishing.
