Had the first ice of the season out in front this morning. About a 50 foot wide patch out to the bulrushes about 70 feet out. Unfortunately the quarter inch thick ice couldn't support my rotund 228 pound body. Guess I'll leave the fishing stuff in the garage for awhile. Still good to see the ice.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
