PXATim, Sakonnet, and I have been here since Thursday. Didn’t know you had a spot at Al’s. If you’ve been in the closest Town downriver in NY, the big red house next to Napa Auto is mine. If the lights are on, feel free to stop. Double bluestone entrance, drive around back and park. We always fish late. Got closed out for dinner and had to golden arch it across the street. Donks all day. Made up for the two days of hell’s front porch. We did well despite the weather. Going home tomorrow. Back Thursday night.

After a few slow weeks and a missed weekend by the boy (rock climbing competition), we got into a few. 2PM-10PM float.

Spent a full week at the Stabbin Cabbin 2, 1 shower, 4 brushes of teeth, and a whole lot of cured meats and fast food. The conditions were what you would expect, 4 slow(sunny) days, 2 decent days, and one really good one. It was great to detach, go feral, and exist purely on fishing, sleeping, and eating for an extended period of time.

The kld continues to kill it, and managed to get the biggest fish of the week. All dries, all the time. I never thought I'd become one of those dudes, but here I am...a dry fly snob.

I estimate we floated ~40 miles over the course of the week, averaging about 6-7 a day.

Made the boy wash and wax the boat, being as I rowed ~38 of the 40 miles we floated. Bow time ain't free.

All in all, a great week with the boy, he is quickly becoming a great angler, and is already a great pyro.
