Fishing guides and fly shop owners in the northern Adirondacks got a surprise this week as the state gave them the approval to go back to work as part of the New York’s phased-in reopening plan that started Friday.

Some angling professionals plan to head straight for the water, but others will wade in more slowly.

  1. Here in Britain, we – Well, I – have watched some extremely keen “Get back fishing” (save our Industry and daily rentals income fishery owners) types in full political-spinning action over recent weeks, during a time when large parts of Britain were off-limits and their inhabitants dying off in significant numbers daily.

    I thought one of my “this can’t be happening, but it is” Hmmm…s, plus a “save-our-expensive-skins commerical imperatives…” and about “Nero fiddling away at his execrable lyre whilst Rome burned”…

    Same as it ever was, I discovered a few days ago, after being sent an article by a fishing and “Rough Shooting” (that’s walking around with a 12-gauge out in the country, shooting at whatever legal and edible that comes along sport, not by-the-megabucks-a-day Downton Abbey Driven Anything, just as I did many years ago in a less-regimented youth) pal who reads such magazines … “Yup.” I thought to myself. “As Rome burned, then straight back to Our old ways and utterly blinkered, not a lot of life left in it if we carry on like this for much longer, business as usual, way back when then and once again now….”.

    “Driven Anything”

    Make that driven “Something”.

    Make it so. Picard Out.

    Everybody who is (self-designated – you mention me, I mention you, that’s how it works now…) Anybody Offishul/ icious Fishy Fishing-wise here (Britain – we have our troubles, you have yours) is interviewing the living fark out of one another on various hastily created video channels at the moment (you big me up, I big you, we all big the brand / product / grouping / pack together…).

    I believe that I speak for everybody “normal” (even those just 25% so) now when I utter a completely understanding (well, if really you think people will believe that, chaps….) “Uh??”

    “And I looked, and behold a pale horse….”
