Some Winter Fishing

Over the years many people have asked me if I go ice fishing.

“Nope,” I reply. “Ice fishing’s past the point of being a normal sportsman’s activity.”

I let it end like that. I do not tell my questioners that I sometimes go fly-fishing during the winter – which is also a little off the wall.

I do not make winter fly-fishing adventures nearly as often as I did 25 years ago. In those days I regularly sandwiched fly-fishing adventures between cross-country skiing outings. But, with global warming – less snow, with the type of snow we now get clinging to my skis – I rarely hop on the skis anymore....
