There are many different ways to catch a chub

Driftless Opener 2014

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
