    Let’s talk about fishing: Favorite trout flies

    So, which do I prefer, fly-fishing or fly-tying? The truth is that I love them equally. The real thrill of catching a fish on a fly is to make a wary trout believe that the fly you are fishing is a natural.

    Miss Elder lives on our floor in the apartment next to Mrs. Robertson and her son, Matthew. She has a hump on her back and she is bent over, which makes her look even shorter than she really is.

In a way, it’s better to get the full impression of the latest art installments from the Resisting Entropy III show currently on display at CMCA in Rockport on a day like this, rather than on the busy opening night.
