“Fishing puts me in touch with another of nature’s species, in beautiful surroundings that are as old as time. That is where I want to be; that is how I’m renewed.”
—Joan Salvato Wulff
This time of year is a bit of a mixed blessing. I am excited because the Hexagenia mayflies are hatching. But once that spectacular mayfly hatch is over, we begin the so-called dog days of summer. The warm water tends to slow the fish and the fishing down. The spring bite becomes a thing of the past.
