Default Arctic Blast coming? ... bring it on!

I don't mind the cold weather. I have some warm comfy cloths.

Everybody stays home and watches football, I go fly fishing!

Very nice rick! That's duck hunting weather, but it looks like you managed a slam.
I'm hoping for some cold down here. It brings the blues and mackeral onto the beaches and wakes up the crappie. I just bought a few shooting head sink tips so I'll be ready for the crappie.

Rick: We have been enjoying some really warm wx (at least for this part of the country) for the past several days, so I have been taking advantage of it and going fishing everyday, but I figure the hammer will drop any day now and the cold will return.

Great photos, thanks for sharing!

The "third" pic is a small tiger musky! Only maybe 14" ....... but I caught him with a 1 wt Orvis Superfine and a tiny streamer!

It may be the only musky ever caught on a 1 wt fly rod? I probably hold the record?

A warmwater discharge in the Susquehanna river. Snow on the ground and below freezing air temps, but I was standing in warm bath water! LOL
