Don't Give Up on Winter

Don't Give Up on Winter

January thaw 0507Winter has arrived. Gone are the warm early November days we so much enjoyed and with them go any hopes of finding rising fish. On the other hand, anJanuary thaw 0763y day that the air temperatures rise above freezing we can and will get back out there. With the right gear and the right flies we can still catch fish. We will concentrate on the warmest part of the afternoon and our flies of choice will be tungsten bead head nymphs or if push comes to shove, glow bugs and squirmy wormies. If we find off color water it might be a slowly retrieved black super bugger. It will be important to get the fly down to where we expect the fish to be and a weighted streamer given time to sink will be in order. So break out the down jackets, wool socks, fleece buffs and hand warmers..... and don't forget a thermos of hot coffee. We'll see you out there.January thaw 0961

 

The Thoughtful Robot

Michigan guide, Russ Maddin, hits the nail on the head with his observations and suggestions on being an effective streamer fisherman. There is a lot more to this art then just casting and stripping as you'll discover. It's an excellent interview and he makes some some very good points. Thank you Russ and MidCurrent for bringing it to us. Click here to read the article
