Anyone else rough it around here?
If I only went fishing in "nice weather" like you then I might "rough" it too. Its not an option for those of use who live further north than you and fish late fall/early winter and late winter/early spring. Air temps in the upper 20's and water temps in the 30's. I'd like to see you out fishing in shorts and flip flops walking thru the snow. You don't even have to wade.
I guess I'm a softie, I wear waders, I like living too much not to.
