Time to get to work!

My winter vacation in Florida is over. We point the Prius north at o'dark:30 tomorrow AM. Played a lot of tennis and a little golf and just a smidgen of fishing.  Tuesday Stan and I visited my old buddy Dick in Punta Gorda.  Dick and I used to work together and are both alums of the BSC (Bull Salmon Club - google it for more details.)  Dick organized the first conference of the BSC in September 1989 at Maynard's of Maine. But I digress . . .
We met Dick at his place and launched his flats boat on Charlotte Harbor.  We stopped at a few spots - caught a lot of Ladyfish and a few trout.  We tossed flies for a while, but when the wind picked up we wimped-out and chucked a few spoons.  The water depth ranges from about a foot to about eight feet.  Most of the places we fished, we could see the fish chasing our flies. (Or NOT chasing our flies! :-(   We were hoping for some redfish, but none showed their spots.
Stay tuned for reports from MA and NH (and maybe NY and CT!) 
We still have a few openings in the Northeast Fly Fishing School classes -  Beginner Class and Intermediate Class
Our Androscoggin Special Package trip is almost sold out for June, with only a few spots open, and we are starting to book September trips.
