Brrrr.

I was able to get out for a few hours yesterday and between the frozen guides found a few willing to play.

I hooked fish on the swing most of the day and even found a couple willing to eat on the top swinging a little softie through the film. Winter is an interesting time to trout fish. I love the solitude.

This is from when I lived in central Alberta. Both the coldest and most boring winters I've ever had to deal with. Until I found out about that little spring creek behind me in the picture, and the big old browns living in there. It was only an hour drive from home, and I spent so much time post-holing around the banks trying to sneak up on those guys. Only ever caught one, but it was like 18" and just made my winter.

Spent 3 hours on the lower Madison yesterday. I was swinging streamers and woolly buggers. Only caught one but was a beauty. None on soft hackles. At about 5 pm was driven off by the wind. Sorry no photos. Hope that was you that past me on the East side of the river just south of Bear Trap. Black pickup? Snow was too deep there to try and get thru with CRV
