Opening Day 2011 Shutout

Yesterday was opening day for fishing here in Maine..well sort of..usually I’m not a huge participant of opening day fishing as , in the past, the water is too high or it’s too cold or there’s too much ice or this or that. Last year however, because of the very fine spring weather opening day got booted up a week early by special proclamation of Gov. Baldarci (spelling? you know Mama’s boy..) and I did take part. Yesterday?..not so much..

That old hag Mother Nature pulled a fast one on us , the B….!
So I spent a valuable fishing day looking out my windows with disgust and thinly veiled anger and working on my taxes..Oh Joy..Oh Joy! There were a few, much hardier souls than I, who did get out and actually caught some brookies..God Bless ’em!! And compared to them I stand humbly in their shadows..
So today I must spend a good part of the morning shoveling and scooping my driveway ..I called off the plowman due to soft ground.. and may head west on Rt. 3 to take in the sportsman show in Augusta..no fishing today but possibly tomorrow.
So like the Red Sox I am 0&1..however there is a long way to go!
