Who’s Ready For Winter Fishing?

The steel headers are stoked, hunting season is wrapping up, and the rivers have quieted down considerably. Snow is starting to show up regularly in Western Montana, which means winter fishing is here. Winter fishing means solitude, chilly fingers, and slow drifts to lockjawed fish. So why do we love it so much?  Your guess is as good as mine. Maybe it’s the crunch of your boots on fresh snow, knowing your footprints are the only ones that will reach the river that day. Maybe it’s the thermos of coffee in your pack clinking against your fly boxes. The simple flies, the steaming breath, and the extra layers between your waders. Whatever it is, we’re ready for it. How about you?
