So, my son and I made plans to go fishing last Saturday. This is what we woke up to...








I didn't let that stop us, although I wish I had. It was about 1C (34F) and it rained the entire morning.

Our perserverence paid off, though, we were rewarded with about a dozen of these:




The one in the pic was caught on a red/black simi seal leech




But most of them that day were caught on these. Brown wooly bugger with dark brown grizzly hackle and snowshoe hare for a tail.

I was out last Thursday in similar conditions.  We started out at 25 degrees and ended up around 45 degrees.  There was a lot of time spent clearing ice from the guides and warming up, but we managed 9 fish between us, so not too bad.

Beauty of a brookie. They are such a special fish. I hear ya on the brrrrrr. This has been the coldest spring I can remember here in Mi. Finally warmed up yesterday and today but supposed to drop back into the 40/50s again for a few days now. That should be the last of the cold after that I hope.

Nice man! Beautiful fish


You're going to hate me a little, but it was 92 degrees earlier this week... and I've never been in snow lol.

Still hunting for my first tarpon on fly! 

Why are windknots in love with me?

Can't wait for that diy trip to Acklins!!
