Ice Age






















Met up with jerry at 8. we drove to get spiritual but that proved to be a waste. a long stretch with some great water proved to be more then we could handle as we got shut out. we headed west and decided to try an area i looked at yesterday but couldn't get in. as luck would have it, it got plowed this morning up to a certain point. when we arrived we ran into an elderly couple that live up there and b.s.'d with them for awhile. it was quite a bit colder there and after bout an hour and a half we called it. only 2 small fish to hand. it got to be to much of a pain in the ass having to de-ice our lines, leaders, indicators and i even had to put my flies in my mouth to melt all the ice off of them. it really made casting a bitch.there was lots of snow and ice on the river. the river bottom in some spots also had a lot of ice and sludge so we really had to watch our steps.

My "vitals" retracted up inside my body cavity for warmth looking at these pictures - but somehow it still looks like fun. Good stuff.
