A Window In February

A short window in February, offers up the 1st bass of 2018

Cold, rain and more rain has been the norm here lately. Stepping outside this morning, the air felt better than expected. I had seen rain all weekend in the forecast, but checked again. NO rain and mid 50's until noon!  With the C&S 5wt in the car, I made a run for water. The window began to shut quickly though, and in less than 30 minutes it was low 40's and raining steady.  However, in that scant 30 minutes, the first bass of 2018 decided to cooperate. A nice surprise in the midst of three hungry 12" Chain Pickerel 

The Little Crappie Fly was the soup-of-the-day again.
