Been cold up in the mountains. Some serious anchor ice ...

... and quite the variety of ice to contend with yesterday.

Besides the anchor ice and the shelf ice and the slush ice and ice in the guides, there was some ice that created structure.

The structural ice created a soft water lie which held a couple of the larger trout on the day.

Releasing this one across some shelf ice provided the opportunity to get an unusual fish pic.

All in all, it was a tough day fishing, with only ten trouts ( cutts, bows, and browns ) coming to the fly and eight in hand.
