Default Middle Provo, Ut

Headed to the middle this morning about 8:30. Headed to meet my brother in-law at his honey hole

Beautiful day even with temps at around 10 degrees. Got to the honey hole and fish rising all over, but couldn't buy a netting. A few long distance releases.

We then headed down stream to a spot we have had good luck on.

Guides started icing up so we headed home after a couple of hours.

Did manage to net four nice little brown:

Joni,

Nice pictures, glad to see someone is fishing. I'm tying flies and thinking about fishing. Going to spend a few days working on my motorcycle getting it ready for spring.

Nice pics Joni. Might go hit the Weber tomorrow if the wife is up to it.

I looked at the rod your using at S.W. today (well not that very rod, but one like it. lol) Almost bought a little 7.5' 4 wt Griggs that was on sale for like $45.00 but decided to hold off......now I'm kinda wishin I would have brought it home.

Not that I have noticed. I would think plastic would be more effected, not to mention glass.

"long distance releases"; l Iove that phrase! I promise that I will recycle it - often. No more break-offs for me from here on in.

I don't think that the temperatures that any of us normaly encounter in the Winter are low enough to make a difference in the performance/action of the rods we fish; whether they're graphite, composite or glass. For sure, there are cold temperatures that will cause tightness and even brittleness in these materials, but they're generally laboratory conditions. At normal temps; probably in the range of 0-100 degrees F, I don't think it will make much difference.

Cane rods could be a different story. If normal Winter temps do have an effect on rod performance, it would probably be with cane rods at temps below 32 degrees F (the freezing point of freshwater), since it's impossible to remove all of the moisture from wood. And when the water in wood freezes, it expands and we all know what that means. I would probably be inclined to err on the conservative side and not to fish a cane rod at temps below 32 F.

Great pics! This time of year, I would definitely be very, very happy with those Browns.
