I know how you feel. I've been in a funk since losing my job and having my fishing partner move to Michigan after losing his job.

The cold weather and latest snow storm is not helping matters.

I'm sure this will pass and am looking forward to the Tying Jam to help re-ignite the desire to fish.

You'll get past this and back into the game. Hang in there!

Higher temps. plus sunshine here have me in a better frame of mind. Now if the Gulf was more than it's present 62 degrees I 'd be a happy camper.

At least I can say, I don't have a desire to sit around and be inside all day. I still get "out". Just no desire to fish.


meh, no big deal then...enjoy your time afield not fishing and don't worry about it.

There's more to life than fishing, much more.

Yeah, it's not really about the where or how....it's more about just getting out there and enjoying yourself.

New Years thru about mid March are awful for me. Can't wait til my wife retires and we can spend this time in Florida fishing in the Gulf!

This year is a little different following the Eagles path to the Super Bowl and finally pulling it out. Hopefully the glow will stick with me til March when I can hopefully handle the temps again.

Thank you Foles and Peterson and all the rest of the crew especially Carson Wentz. Fly Eagles Fly!!!

I know that feeling real well especially in that cold snap we had I have been out the last 2 weekends and did well and now I want to go everyday right now. Fishing new water really helps me too.

Some people think I'm pretty strange, perhaps you could fish the Tully with me.

Friendly hint--Vero Beach is one of the best,if not the best area in Florida to run out the string-not crowded- the east coast usually gets a sea breeze -settle within five miles of the ocean-even summers are pleasant-not true much farther inland- there are those who like the faux ocean [gulf] but much more crowded-Vero up to Melbourne nice-sparsely settled and good fishing.

I've felt it coming for quite some time. I have no motivation to fish. I haven't been out since late October. Haven't even got my 2018 license yet. This ever happen to anyone else?


Haven't fished since October 3rd, haven't even considered buying 2018 license or fishing yet.

For some reason, I'm offended because I wasn't included as a weirdo. LOL

I'm in for the weirdo jam...but not til March. I am actually legitimately busy til then.

Thanks you guys. I do appreciate it. Probably many things at play right now-the need for new water, my head is still messed w/ from my bro's death a few years ago (that's a fishing partner I never thought I'd lose), been a stressful time in my work, combined with a move from one area of Lanc to another, and generally not having much desire to fish alone anymore.

I just need to go out. Whether I have the motivation or not, I just need to do it. I know I'll love it once I'm out there.

Not much of a cold weather flyfisherman anymore. Promised myself I would really focus on tying these past few months, but started to lose interest. Excited to go to the flyfishing show in Lancaster like I do every year. Super excited to get out and fish with some new friends and hope to meet more.
