Maine Event Preview

I've never been to Maine before, though I've always been drawn to the beauty of the northern states. Next week I will get to visit Maine with some friends, staying at a cabin near Moosehead Lake. Most of the other guys are also doing some bird hunting, and we'll be fishing for landlocked salmon, beautiful fish that seem to me colored like a brown trout but with a definite salmon shape to their heads.

I'm also told that the chances are very good for a moose spotting. The moose picture below was taken by my friend at the same place during the same week last year. That's Ed grinning with a landlocked salmon in the next picture.

So hopefully I will have fish stories and pictures to post when I get back! It's been a summer of pretty poor fishing, so I look forward to feeling that tug of life at the end of the line again. If not, at least there will be pictures of beautiful scenery, and stories about sharing a cabin with four guys and five bird dogs for six days. Sounds like an idea for a reality TV show if you ask me, but I'm really looking forward to the whole thing...

Thanks! I'm really excited to see it. I'd like to go back another time too and see the coastal part, but I'm very happy to visit the interior...

Have a great trip! I'm guessing you won't be at the Skins/Lions game this Sunday...

I absolutely WILL be at the game! That is my very first season ticket game, I wouldn't miss it. We're leaving early Monday morning for Maine. If you're going, give me a call, I have a green parking pass and will probably tailgate in the usual place.
