    If they jump here, they hit their head on 14″ of ice…
    The end is near....

    True that! Ain’t no fish going to be jumping around here for a while! Most places around here have about a foot of clear, solid ice! Lakes, that is. Rivers not so much, but there’s precious little open water.
    It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.

    I’m loving our record-breaking snowfall this winter, but if there’s one thing that could get me ready for spring, it’s the movement of some carp, sucker and gar, and the flinging of some fiberglass arrows into the lakes and rivers! {#emotions_dlg.mathews_cool}

    Well, DUH! Do I feel stupid or what? Didn’t notice the type color, so didn’t realize it was a link until I looked at it second time. Really cool vid! A friend of mine and his wife honeymooned in New Zealand on a trout fishing trip. They lived out west, so I wasn’t able to attend the ceremony, but as a gift I sent each of them an identical selection of flies that I had tied, only 2 of each variety. The test of love would be if one of them had just one fly left of the type that seemed to working. Would they lend it to their partner?

    I’m also reminded of a story by John Gierach about the Green Drake hatch on the Henry’s Fork of the Snake. Seems a guy from New Zealand had flown up for it, and despite professing that he’d had a good time there, confessed that, all in all, the trout were rather small and he couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about!

    Gets one’s blood boiling, but a little early for Damsel Fly hatches in CO.

    I went ice fishing last week on the Blue Mesa Reservoir, East of Montrose CO, and caught a 19¾” Brown … nice and fat. I think the cold water makes the fish firmer and taste sweeter.

    Last leaping Brown I caught was after Crane Flies on Kennedy Creek in the Eastern Sierras.  However, this Brown would come completely out of the water to take the large Crane Flies. I don’t often run into a Crane Fly hatch but do have a few Deer Hair Daddy in my fly box.

    I liked the way this video was made. It does raise my desire for spring thaw. Winter here is getting way to long in the tooth.

    Trout part of it don’t excite me much mainly because they aren’t really found in Ohio. All trout are an ideal looking fish though. The ones that are here are stock bred and introduced in two or three streams from the Ohio department of fisheries.

    I agree gjarcher the colder the water the sweeter the meat is on any fish. The Canadian cold water walleye do taste better than the warmer water walleye of Ohio. {#emotions_dlg.typotux (37)}
