WINTER WEATHER - YOU THINK YOU'VE GOT IT BAD
Grey skies and miserably cold weather make for happy duck hunters and unhappy fly fishermen. Disconsolate fly enthusiasts, who curse the lack of fishing opportunities, spend most of their winter hours indoors, working on flies and equipment they may not use for months. Everyone has cabin fever and struggles with depression. In this environment, many a fly fisher might only dream of opportunities to use new patterns or improve casting skills. Of course, those who can afford to do so will escape for a while to more tropical zones and re-energize their fishing karma, but for a large portion of American fly fisherman, it is an unpleasant few months.
