Spring has sprung indeed. Despite some tumultuous weather in the midwest and South, finally there seems to be some opportunity to get out and wet a line. If you were a winter steelheader or salmon chaser, then you have been out all winter long, save the blow outs or frozen guides, and then maybe you were still out there. But, the trout/grayling fisher or pike fisherman have been limited by seasonal closures or frozen landscapes.
All the tying and fiddling with gear now culminates in season openers or ice off or time off. New possibilities. New seasons. The doldrums and/stir crazy days of winter are behind. Time to enjoy life a little more now.
