Beneath the Belly

 Every man casts a shadow; not his body only, but his imperfectly mingled spirit. This is his grief. Let him turn which way he will, it falls opposite to the sun; short at noon, long at eve. Did you never see it?
 ~Henry David Thoreau 

 The Fall came like a bolt of lightning this year. The 2012 fishing season was stellar on many fronts for both myself, friends, and customers of mine. The weather for the most part cooperated in the North East. The fish, water born insects, and terrestrials were seemingly unaffected by the mid summer heat. Many rivers and streams that I fished were very healthy indeed. I am grateful for the opportunity to spend so much time on the water this year. Hopefully 2013 season will be equally a memorable one. Stay creative over the winter and think good things that will keep you and others smiling.

“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”
~Henry David Thoreau
