  Last night severe thunderstorms rolled through much of CT.  I think the only part of the state  left out was the Fair Field County area. I was able to hook up the boat at 4am and pick up Jan D. with out having to worry about impending doom via a lightning strike.   We hit the Ramp at 5 and quickly got the boat wet.  I was very excited about today's trip.  I wait for this tide all year; first week in June, high tide, day break.  When this comes together i advise any one to get out and slay!

    Upon arriving at our Number one spot , Jan laid out a cast and scored the first fish on a Slug-O!  I opted for my 9wt with a floating line and a deer hair slider. Once the cast was made it did not take long for a fish to eat it.  Great! double header right off the bat!  I was worried this was the "kiss of death" but not today!  The hits kept coming.  We landed fish from 16 inches up to 32 inches.  Total we got 15-20 fish.  As the sun got higher the fish slowed up and would only follow our offerings. 

   Today was one of the days that i will remember for a while.  We had great action with bass on top water. They attacked  Slug-O's or one of my flies, we had a great time.  I don't think I could be in a better mood.  First, I was able to catch a legal bass on a fly I tied, and bring it home for one heck of a meal.  Second, I was able to fish with a great friend.  Third, We beat the heat!(It will be near 100 today in NYC 30 min away).  Fourth, I am able to come home and take a nap before i go to work!  Does not get much better than that! Thank god the weather held out.
