The "Hassle Factor"
Over the years and after witnessing growing competition for the same fish, we’ve turned more and more into contrarians: we fish when others think the fishing is poor, or especially when they think it’s non-existent. Dave Sherwood and his friend Matt Boutet think the same way: “Together, we’ve hiked twenty miles in a single day, to return dehydrated, feet blistered and skin bloody with black fly bites — all in a futile attempt to find trout water. We’ve been lost, skunked on a regular basis, stranded at sea and had more flat tires than either of us would ever care to count. Along the way, though, we’ve caught a few nice trout.” On MaineToday.com.
