This week was march break for my kids and with spring less than a week away, we hoped for some half decent weather – anything above freezing would do. Well, we got our one nice day, at 6 degrees Celsius. Unfortunately, the next day brought another big snowfall and was followed by a day of nearly -20C (-30C with wind chill).
It’s hard to believe that we’re expected to be hitting the rivers in less than a month and the rivers are still completely frozen over and covered with snow. In a few weeks, I’m also planning to check out a nearby fly fishing club as I’m considering getting a membership this year. They have some catch and release fly fishing-only trout ponds that will not only allow me to extend my fishing season, but also be a fun and safe way to get my 9 year old out fly fishing more often.
It’s time to hunker down and top off the fly boxes. Despite the horrible weather, I’m already getting excited for opener!
