9 Intrepid fly fishermen spent a great day on the water at the People's State Forest on Oct. 10. The temperature at 7:30 a.m. was 45 degrees, so we decided to drink the DD coffee and eat the doughnuts as the weather and sun got a bit higher in the sky. Eventually, after a lot of talking tall tales, we ventured out on the Farmington River, fishing at the Pipeline Pool up river from Matthies Grove. Fishing was great, catching so, so. Later on about 12:30 p.m. as we were leaving a group of us had an impromptu talk about Czech Nymph fly fishing techniques from Mike Stuart.
