I absolutely agree. ^

We need to get outside this time of year to keep our minds right and a good walk or hike really helps.

There are a lot of hiking trails around trout streams - think of the old rail to trail along Letort - that are great places to walk. In fact, if you walk a stream, you'll notice things that are often overlooked if you're too busy trying to string up your rod. Noticing these things will make you a better angler.

Better yet, take a dog and some binoculars for bird watching too.

Walking along a trout stream without a fly rod is my personal definition of hell.

I learned more on the Letort without a rod than I have fishing it for years.
Great advice.

With the recent temps, fishing couldn't be further from my thoughts. Not only is the idea of losing a toe or finger not appealing, exposing a fish to air temps this low isn't promoting protection of the resource. The notion of attempting to fish in 19 degree weather strikes me as foolish and selfish. Just my opinion though

I tried ice fishing last year, but had the darnedest time dropping the fly in that little hole.

I took a walk along Spring Creek today.

There was quite a bit of ice on the stream at Fishermans Paradise.

Not just a little bit along the edges, but frozen the whole way across in the slower stretches.

This bitter weather is getting old.
The wife has had a nasty cold since Christmas. And now, I'm starting to get sneezes and sniffles.
And the worse part - it's not supposed to break any time soon.
With the coldest air coming over the weekend, when they're forecasting subzero low temps.

We visited the in-laws yesterday, and had to drive across "dahn-tahn"
All three rivers are froze over now.
Haven't seen that for a few years.

You have to learn to be versatile! Get an auger, drill a hole, if you want to get fly fishing involved tie up some tungsten beadheads and get one of the reels that resemble a fly reel for ice fishing. This is the ONLY time of year I keep any fish! Panfish through the ice are the best tasting fish you can get!

When in Rome, Big John...Nice!

I have long since given away all my ice fishing stuff. Wish I still had it...
