À Contre-Courant: Adirondack from À Contre-Courant on Vimeo.

Le niveau des rivières redescend, la température se fait plus agréable et les éclosions se font de plus en plus nombreuses. Voici ce que nous avons attendu toute l’hiver, mais il reste encore quelques semaines avant de pouvoir vraiment en profiter.

Entre-temps? On se permet de revivre l’automne 2013 avec un vidéo tournée dans les Adirondacks. Enjoy!

The water levels are dropping while temperatures are rising, the hatches are slowly starting on the local rivers and the trouts are on the prowl. This is what we have been waiting for all winter, but there are still a few weeks before prime time.

In the mean time? We relive our 2013 Autumn trout trip with this video shot in the Adirondacks. Enjoy !

We found this Wood Duck secondary wing feather in the woods today. Anyone ever tie with these or have suggestive patterns? #flytying

At over 500 ft., a very scenic view looking east. Can see the Prudential and Hancock buildings in Boston.  (at Oak Hill Tophet Chasm)
