LOTS TO DO
if the world only knew
|ONE OF MANY|
.. By the way quite a few fishers mull about when the temperatures climb above -5°F. We do that occasionally too. Day after day this continues apace with the fun times of winter.
.. We don't want to dissuade them of their cloistered attitudes; it's crowded and busy enough already.
|A WINTER FRIEND|
.. Quite a few of the neighbors rushed to the water's edge and slammed 'em during the first black speck hatch of the winter. Damn if it didn't top 20° F yesterday!
|NOTHING LIKE SUCCESS|
.. Therefore, a grand time was had by all yesterday evening. The pre-spawn fish in the Hebgen Dam Tailwater are both earlier and larger than usual - judging by the stories.
.. Catching down canyon on the Gallatin River has been spotty but not too dismal. Large streamers drifted rather than stripped have been working well, as have large, (size 8 - 10,) non-bead head nymphs.
|GOOD OL' HARE'S EAR|
.. We, up here in the dreary and sullen north woods, will do it again tomorrow. And, the weekends, so be it, are much more busy than the weekdays.
|WORKS ALL WINTER|
.. We enjoy the winter. Unlike the folks who enjoy shorts, cutoffs, bikini garb, and the uniform weather sameness of the beach, we take pleasure in the seasons.
.. Besides that, El Niño has dampened many of the snowbirds destinations this year. Warm and wet is not our idea of escape in wintertime.
