October defines my Maine. If we could extend one month to an entire year, this would be the one.
The weather is perfect, sunny and cool. The crops are in, the bugs are gone, the hectic summer schedule is behind us.
Proof that there is a God is found in the spectacular splash of color on every hardwood ridge. I spend a lot of October looking up.
My favorite outdoor activities are never better. Fall fishing is the best fishing of the year. It took a long time for Maine to offer fishing in the fall. Our fishing season always ended on September 30. Now, we can fish year-round in many places. I am proud that the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine led the way on this.
