Last week I went in search of trout on the Deerfield River. Nestled into a beautiful valley in Western MA the Deerfield is a great river to float or to wade — you just have to be sure to hit the flow right. This day I went with my good friend Rob Robillard (the writer behind A Concord Carpenter and The Boston Globe handyman columnist) — someone who loves fly fishing, and the outdoors, but is busy enough that he doesn’t get to do nearly enough of it.
We hired Eric Gass of GSO Outfitting as our guide. Eric is a great guy. I’ve been shooting with him before — he’s great on the water and in the field.
Here are some pics from the day — sun, trout, local beer, and good laughs. Can’t beat it.
