Winter Wet Flies

Partridge & Yellow

I’ve never liked cold weather, and the older I get the stronger this aversion becomes. What my Mother used to call a “weather breather,” combined with a bad case of Cabin Fever, might lure me out to wet my line during the winter months. I need a day with a high of at least 50 degrees, and not much wind. I will then go out for an hour or two in the warmest part of the afternoon, and if no feeding fish are seen I may never step into the water. Just walking along the banks and watching the stream and the life in and around it, getting some fresh air and mild exercise, is a worthwhile endeavor.
