At the end of the summer, my thoughts wandered west to Yosemite. While few places can even attempt to be as picturesque, recently I've been thinking quite a bit about Maine, let's take a few moments to visit, if only from afar...

I don't recall ever being in Maine, although it could be possible as I visited New Hampshire once as a kid. I tend to block out that trip as I was scarred by my first Moxie exposure.
Jokes aside, I'd really like to get back to that area of the country again as an adult to soak in the whole experience. Not just for the fly fishing (& tenkara opportunities), but the local flavor, the beautiful nature and wildlife, and all of the maritime history that makes that part of New England unique.
Anybody have any suggestions regarding vacationing and/or fly fishing in Maine? I'd love to learn more about your experience in the comments below. I think this could be an ideal Summer or Fall family getaway, quite a bit different than Florida at the very least.
