01.24.14 Hit the cold beach before the Fly Fishing Show....



                                                

     Before heading up to Somerset for The Fly Fishing Show this weekend I decided to hit the frigid beach to catch the morning sunrise. Even in 9 degree weather there is a warming effect, to an extent, of a beautiful sunrise. There's just something about that short window of the day that can clear my mind and help me start the day off on a good foot.
     And when it comes to fishing there's nothing like getting down to the ocean in the dark before first light and waiting and watching for the light to arrive. Each day is different, each moment is different. Sometimes the clouds hide that moment when the sun breaks on the horizon. Other times the sun isn't as strong or as radiant. But, one good days everything lines up and for those few minutes you can stand there and take it all in. And sometimes it can move you.

Not this morning, trust me
     As you all know the Fly Fishing Show is this weekend in Somerset. It opens today and runs till Sunday. If you are a beginner or an experienced fly fisher or tyer its a great time to come out and see the latest products, meet innovators in the fly fishing industry, sit in on a class or seminar, and meet new friends or catch up with old ones. It's not like you'll be out fishing or doing much outside due to the North Pole, or colder, temperatures that have the NorthEast in a deep freeze.
