While the phone didn’t play nice for Saturday’s outing, it made up for itself on Sunday with the boys. Here’s a little recap of the afternoon… put to Taj Mahal’s Fishin’ Blues (w/Vassar Clements).

    A masterpiece !:) Them there are some excellent fishermen ,and those were very respectable fish ! loved the tune, very “catchy”..caio

  2. That’s a great video. I loved the part when your son was shaking his fist in excitement. I’ve always wanted to fish the golf course ponds around Rochester but never figured out a way to do it without being chased out. A friend of mine years and years ago use to sneak into the one up on Ridge Rd but I never was along for those early morning sneak attacks.

      We’re pretty fortunate…Parkview Fairways is my wife’s parent’s place. Hunting and fishing all in one well groomed parcel of land 🙂 The main pond used to have rainbows, browns and some crazy brookies (I got one that went 17″). Thanks for the comment!

  3. Wow, that is pretty fortunate! Too bad the pond doesn’t have the trout anymore. I’m always looking for a place to fish still water trout. It reminds me of lakes I fished in the Rocky Mountains. I just don’t know of many places locally.

      I’m hoping to re-establish a population of all three. They had stocked them back in ’96/’97 when they had first plowed the farm fields under for fairways. Need to chat with the local Seth Green Chapter of TU 🙂 Nothing better than tying into a 26″+ rainbow that’s leaping all over with golfers trying to tee off on the other side of the water!
