Has anyone located this wonderful stuff? I miss it more often than I find it and I will be on the prowl for the next several weeks!
Isn't still a bit early for the Shad run?
IIRC,the Connecticut River run occurred a bit after the opening of trout season which was always the first Saturday in April. A sure sign of Spring was the sprouting of all the "Shad Roe For Sale" signs along the then rural roadsides and standing in the icy waters of the upper reaches of the Housatonic River with my Dad trying to coax a rainbow to take the fly. Now ya got me craving some of these delicacies and I'm sure not gonna find either around here.Message posted from my Commodore 64
