Hoping I can feel safe to go fishing this coming weekend. I have new gear that needs to get used! I a good number of folks ice fishing Camp Lake between Becker and St. Cloud. I also saw a couple houses on Big Lake in Big Lake MN. I don't see any reason that small lakes wouldn't be safe, but it is still kinda freaky.
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
