A 20 *F day with sunshine and negligible wind makes for a comfortable day on the stream.
A good pair of fingertip-less gloves goes along way for comfort on these late winter afternoons.
This time of year I've got the valley to myself
I followed the coon trail along the stream.
As for tackle this time of year I usually fish a panther martin spinner any day that wind picks up.
Today would have been a great day to fish a nymph, scud, streamer or some other wet fly.
Well, as luck would have it, my fish adventure turned out to be a great hike.
I found my first shed of the year just the other day, a nice 4 point with a thick base.
What a great end to a Friday.
