Baltimore County Hurricane Irene Party

Hurricane Irene Prompts Removal of the Backwater Angler Flags
The Hurricane Party at Backwater Angler started at 10:03 AM this morning. We’ve had a few folks who drove up to the Gunpowder from Annapolis to float the lower river in a slick pontoon boat armed with large streamers and foam terrestrials. Another brave angler from Columbia reported seeing lots of rising fish at Masemore and left with a few reverse-hackle tricos, 7x, dry shake and a new pair of Simms Headwater Vibram boots in hand. We’ve just taken the flags down and are pulling the rocking chairs off the porch. For more on Hurricanes, stop in before 4:00 PM today, drive the requisite 1,142 miles to Pat O’Brien’s or learn how to make one quick at What’s Cooking America. If this is your first rodeo, give the FEMA Hurricane Preparedness Site a looksee-it seems that they’ve learned a bit since the Katrina/Rita duo made landfall. Be safe ya’ll!-and don’t forget to fill up your bathtubs…
