Cool pictures! Thanks for sharing. Winter fishing can be difficult, but it sure is fun getting out.

I got skunked the other day fishing the Roaring Fork near Carbondale, CO, the temps were really cold, but no wind. I have a pair of 5mm neopreme waders from my time in Alaska, they don't work worth a hoot in the summer, but they sure keep me warm during the winter trips.

thanks mcnerney I been itching to get out. its been awhile too! I had alot of fun. I got some neo's also for cold winter. my feet still get cold when wading after awhile no matter what I do. I just get out and walk around and stuff for a lil bit to warm up if possible. in the summer I use breathables. you will never wanna wear anything other once you give um a try! oh ya i found a great way to combat icy guides yesterday. cast a couple times and every 10 min or so take your rod and blow some hot air on your guides and it melts and falls off with a quick wipe. noone ever mentioned that one before. prolly cause its common sense.... haha

Totally envious of your getting out!! We're too far from our spring fed streams, and all our otherwise cold water is "hard" water now. Just biding my time looking at pictures, tying flies, building rods, and furling leaders. Boy, will I be ready come spring!!!

Nice! Winter FF'ing pics are my favorite. It shows determination.

I was out on New Year's Day, and my guides iced within minutes. Last year
was the first time I fished when the temps were below freezing, and I found
that the flexibloe Ti guides on my Diamondback Aeroflex rods did not ice; the
chrome guides on my other rods did ice that day, however. I've read that Ti
guides (at least the ReCoil type) don't ice as much as chrome. My guess is the thinner wire, and also the slight vibration that can be heard while shooting
line. The Ti guides do get a light coating of ice, but it falls off before growing
into the mess I had last week on my chrome guides.

It figures. The rivers around here get about right, and the weather turns cold. Next week it'll be way too cold. I'm sure the rivers will freeze. The Clearfork will likely be ok as it's a tailwater, assuming they close the dam. But fishing won't be much fun with the forecast temps below 20 and into single digits.

I know the fishing is tougher this time of year, but it's almost worth it because the crowds are as hard to find as the fish!
