As cold as ice

Winter fly fishing is one of the perks we have in New Hampshire. Season starts on January 1st and some of the rivers still have some open water. This winter was rather mild, and some of the outings rewarded us with some cranky rainbows. However, this has to best enjoyed like fine bourbon: in small doses.
In this situation light nymphing in slow moving water was the right ticket. Dead drift with with some twitches in close proximity to the ice shelf. And the takes were not too shy, these guys were pretty determined, despite the water temperatures in the 30's.

I'm back! probabil o sa fie pestii mai pretentiosi, in special daca e cald inainte si se raceste brusc. Distractie placuta! Sa faci poze si sa postezi.

It must be hard to do fishing in winters but you did it perfectly. You caught good pieces and took pictures like a professional. Thank you for sharing your experience
