    Postcards from The Secret Spot

    Maine is a large state (by New England standards) with lots of waterólakes, ponds, rivers, etc. And there are some very well known fishing destinations. However, most Maine fisherman worth their salt have at least one "secret spot" that's rarely shared with anyone outside of immediate family and a close circle of friends.

    I spent the afternoon and evening yesterday visiting one of my secret spots and thought I'd share a few of these "from-the-canoe" shots with you. Just don't ask me where it is!

    What's kind of fun about this shot (for me anyway) is that I was holding the fly rod (with fish attached) in my right hand, while I adjusted the focus by guessing with my left and then just fired away with my left thumb. Not a large fish, but I feel lucky to have captured even this.

    And one last one as we were leaving and the light was fading.
