    What to wear under your waders?

    The tapered-leg track pants and synthetic sweat pants that got popular around the same time as skinny jeans are great under waders.

    Maine trip

    I doubt your wife would approve of strippers in Camden but begrudge you a day of fishing up north. But every marraige is unique.

    Nice, very nice.

    Cell phone reception

    I do not recommend AT&T for use in the northern or western parts of the state.

    Got droned in a parking lot breaking down my gear last summer after fishing a popular southern Maine river. I firmly believe it was operated by the warden that checked my license on my way in.

    L.L. Bean Rods

    Plenty of ways to break a perfectly good fly rod listed above. One of the most common, especially for new guys, is not letting the rod flex from the grip. Your 9' rod is designed to bend a great deal, but it can only do that if you are using the full machine. If you "choke up" on the rod (not that you said you did) and flex the tip you'll likely break your rod.

    Bass fishing

    I have accepted that despite other qualifications, I'm a pretty lousy saltwater fly-fisher. Been having fun on the locals with smallmouth if anyone wants to join.

    "Crab Moon"

    Good stuff Mike.

    Lightweight Rain Jacket

    The bean's entry level jacket (emerger) does not breathe well. The mid-priced stow-away or flylight or whatever (gortex) is much better.

    When the big one gets away

    It's called a "long-distance release." Well-established term and definitely a euphemism for getting your *** handed to you.
