Earth Day 2013 . . .

Today I took the Q train to Prospect Park in Brooklyn where I spent Earth Day fly fishing, bird watching, photographing wildflowers, and . . bagging and disposing of litter.

The phrase “use the resource” seems selfish when applied to parks and other outdoor spaces. I do not consume the outdoors, I interact with and help out when I can; today by bagging the loose plastic trash that has spread like a virus over the land during the last three decades.

The day encompassed an entire story I wish to take more time to detail later in the week. Let me just state here the bass fishing was excellent using variations on the Wooly Kebari fly pattern!

Happy Earth Day . . .

    Urban fishing with a tenkara – love it. Sounds like a great outing, looking fwd to hearing more!

    • Hello!
      Wind was a huge factor that curtailed my casting most of the day. The fishes were not in the usual areas, either, and not relating to cover. Open water and a slow retrieve, when possible between the wind gusts, produced quality bass and one bluegillzilla that fought very respectably. A challenging, but excellent, outing.
      See you at the UA . . .
