Yes, that time has come, and despite our denials summer has retreated before the relentless onslaught of blasts of arctic air, and global warming is not yet strong enough to deflect its determined will. It has been a long time coming, and it will certainly overstay its welcome. For those of us that due to circumstances beyond our control, such niceties like jobs, bills, and other more mundane reasons, make it impossible for us to escape to warmer climes we must find a way to avoid shooting the TV or kicking the cat. Thus we try to find a way to fish during the winter. It?s possible, even enjoyable, but the rules are different than those that apply during the warmer months.
