It's been a long cold winter for most of us on the East Coast and even this far into the year, we're still getting morning temperatures in the high 30s and low 40s. I finally got out this afternoon to wet a line. For the first hour or so, it looked like I might get skunked, but then I found some nice fat bream who were willing to take my fly. Since the water is still a bit cool, I used my early season standby which is the SEM Sculpin tied in black with a grizzly collar. I ended up with about a dozen, all nice sized fish between 10-12 inches long. It sure felt good to get out in my kayak on a beautiful sunny afternoon. It will give me something to think about when I'm on my business trip all next week
