The weather here in the Taconic Plateau fiddled and diddled and then threw in the towel on winter. It's spring.
The rivers are in great shape. I am not, however; there seems to be an extra ten pounds around the middle and a moderately vigorous fishing trip yesterday left me wiped out.
The Fish Car is loaded and ready; I like to be able to stop whatever I'm doing at a moment's notice and go straight to the venue.
And for shlepping around, the classic combo of lightweight LL Bean casual trousers, Quoddy mocs, a Hanes polo bought from the pile at Wal-Mart, a ribbon belt from Lands End (these things go on sale for about eight bucks per, which makes them very hard to resist - I didn't), and the usual swap' em routine with the watch and the ribbon bands.
