Fishable waters

While most of the Farmington River is completely blown out and not fishable due to Hurricane Irene, there is a decent section below the Goodwin Dam that was in good shape this morning. Those who know me know that I am not a  morning person and my wife often says I must love fishing to get up early to enjoy the sunrise and solitude. Today was one of those mornings, 51 degrees when I left the house and I was rewarded with a beautiful rainbow trout.

I was also scared stiff by the shriek of a bald eagle that flew out of a tree above one of the runs I was casting to...what a beautiful sight...makes getting out of bad that early worthwhile.
