The weatherman claims that a blizzard is coming tomorrow, and we have buttoned down the hatches in preparation. The snow blower is ready to go, the fly tying bench prepped, and we have settled in to see what Mother Nature will bring.
Recently, I was able to sneak away to one of the few stretches of open water around to do some fishing. Trudging through the knee deep snow made me appreciate some of my gear, including the Simms Rivertread wading boot rubber soles...which are great in the water as well, and my warm Filson wool gloves, and Filson heavy wading jacket. I only had a couple of hours to spend in the cold, but it sure beat the office!
