Re: opening day strategy
I've done the winter fishing in the Delaware, no thanks. Between dodging the ice chunks and freezing my tail I have no desire. Opening day to me signifies the end of winter, and that's cause for celebration. As someone who works outside in the winter all year everyday(actually every night) the though of putting myself through more cold after a night of work just doesn't sound appealing.
So the thought of running into another fisherman on opening day isn't so bad, besides if I do run into someone it's usually another fly fisher and nothing more than someone to say hi to as we cross each others path.
