There are large and smallmouth bass in the lake of northern Maine but there also are moments to reassess, to pause and remember what's most important, especially in this crazy age. We found a little perspective on a little pond and a small stand of trees.
The Beaver River in Richmond, Rhode Island has new state regulations to help protect native brook trout populations. No more hatchery raised trout will be allowed in the river system and hopefully native brookies will thrive, reminding anglers just how magical it can be to hike in deep for fish in shallow streams. Then we'll visit Randy Degrace to hear about his almost state record black sea bass.
Maybe I missed it all back home, but in the woods of Maine, for a week, I watched life fast forward. From a canoe and over a coffee, we met new, good people, caught fish and watched as a young child grew to become a young man. Maybe I didn't miss anything at all.
