Funny - just thinking the same thing!

Might I suggest waiting until next August for the big meteor shower. I like the Adams fly pattern in size 14 hook. A good strongly hopped home brew will fit the bill. Currently I have a MB Winter Dark Ale for tonight, but the snow and sleet will preclude stargazing and fly fishing. 

 

Actually - I enjoy astronomy and have built my own telescope. Fly fishing is also a passion of mine shared by my older son. Since I retired, I've been very involved in my hobbies and enjoying brewing again . Aside from brewing, fly fishing and astronomy, I enjoy sailing (fair weather), amateur radio, guitar and competitive archery. We (wife and I) also enjoy hiking, skiing, camping and I am Scout leader. How I ever had time to work (39 years as a science teacher in New York City) is beyond me.

fly WB Hoppy

On the fly fishing, I have only fished in U.K. but there, the best times are dawn and dusk when the real natural flies are out. After dark, not much.  I would start accouple hours before sunset, fish until you can't see, then stick to beer and admire the stars. Besides you don't want a fish bite to make you drop the beer lol.

Hey @HoppySmile!, got anything interesting aging in that barrel of yours?

Well I did have an infected rum oak ale that I just left in that barrel for about 2 1/2 years. And just last weekend I decided to remove and transfer into bottles then I come to find out that I only had about two gallons in a five gallon barrel??? Maybe I sampled some thru the year?
