[report]Day 1:

12-20 Degrees, and a Stiff Wind. Put on a couple extra layers and headed out.

It was pretty much BS right off.

Image

Found Some Warmth.

Image

Found Some Decent Fish Also.

Image

Froze my Ass off and Decided to Call it a Day, Deicing Guides after every 3 casts and fighting the headwind wasn't much Fun.
Decided to Drink More and carefully follow the signs directions.

Image

Didn't see him/her. Saw a cool tree though.

Image



Day 2:

Hit the river and the temps were already 39 Degrees with heavy Cloud Cover. Didn't take long to start seeing fish up. And they were up. Heads everywhere. Lots in super shallow water. Backs were almost exposed. It got Good.

Pulled out these.

Image

Didn't touch anything but dries the rest of the day.

Image

Lots of these:

By 3pm it got sunny and close to 50. Heads disappeared so it was either nymph or end a good day of Dry Fly Fishing in February.
Decided to end it, and enjoy the sunshine.

If tails were cocks, that last fish would be John Holmes. That thing looks like a fucking leer jet. :cool

Cool.

Can you imagine how you would have slayed 'em if you were dredging bobbers and beads?

Wow. Amen.

You are a good man. I wish I could fish during the winter in this frozen hellhole like you can on certain streams in other states, but I can't. The season is closed on all inland trout streams. I can fish only through the ice for trash fish until trout opens in LATE APRIL! What the hell?

You and RFA are the only people I know that like their trout lines. How is that line I sent you working RFA?

I see you attended the "9_er School of Knots"?
