Christmas is fast approaching and with that comes friends and family. Christine comes home form Antarctica later this week and my parents will be here as well.
The weather outside is frightful...so I'm going fishing tomorrow and guiding on Wednesday. It's kind of like fishing in Hawaii, Stan, except that it's really cold and there aren't any Red Devils.
WInter fishing can be really good as the fish are generally congregated in the deeper pools so they are pretty easy to find. The bugs are generally pretty inactive this time of year with the exception of Midges and the occasional Baetis hatch, so fly selection is pretty simple. Long, slow drifts with plenty of weight will be the theme of the day tomorrow.
