So I guess I angered Old Man Winter by saying winter was over, it is very much alive and kicking.
Conditions for the opener were some of the worst I have ever fished. The battle for keeping your hands warm was an impossible one. Even with 2 sets of hand-warmers my fingers just would not stay warm changing flies or adding tippet had me questioning my mental state.
Our average BAC was more than 3 times our average number of fish caught this trip.
but fish (very few) were caught
Freezing our asses off for a few small trout may not be for everyone, but it was worth it as fishing always is.
No chubs were caught.
I cannot wait to fish above freezing temperatures
