Re: Greetings from frozen southwest Iowa!
Being raised in sw Iowa, warm water is pretty much what we have, except for right now. I fell in love with flyfishing at a very young age and started tying flies immediately (no money to buy 'em)' mostly using feathers pulled from pillows and Mom's sewing thread. I dearly love everything about a quality iowa farm pond, the smell, the sounds, obviously the fishing...a good farm pond during the magic hours is truely awesome. But, if I could, I'd live next to a trout stream in Montana/Wyoming...then I could take trips back here for 'gills & bass!
