    Its nothing like a sky lit by the aurora borealis for sure, thats almost a religious experience every time. We see them just about every time the sky is clear in the winter where i live because its so far north.

    Just thought id share my weapon of choice, bought this set this summer. It set me back some major dough. But its so well balanced and sensitive to cast with that I dont regret it for a second. I love the break system on the reel aswell.




    Ill upload some action pictures of troutfishing on the arctic tundra for you later.

    Any kind of fishing is great fun! The mention of ice fishing takes me back to my childhood, -30F in North Dakota, the sound of the ice cracking like a bomb going off, northern lights shining, still haven't seen stars shining that!

    Hello kindred spirits.

    Im not that much of a fly tier, ive fiddled with it a bit but havent discovered my talent yet

    We have great trout waters around here, ive been hooked since childhood. I never stood a chance lol. Its right around widwinter now, everything is frozen over and i have that horrible itch. We fish for trout on the ice in the winter here aswell, I think ill plan on an icefishing trip some time soon.

    You will all have to take some blame on me freezing my ass off on some godforsaken desolate ice soon as this thread surely didnt help my itch Its dark and cold where i am, summer seems too far away My rods are mocking me in my hobby room, 3 months until the seatrout start gathering in the inlets and fjords.

    sigh... 3 months

    have caught lots of snook, but none on a fly rod. only hooked one tarpon, & was immediately amazed at the power they have! hooked it using a big plug while snook fishing at night w/30# test tackle. @#$% thing spooled me in less than 30 seconds, jumped & threw my plug! i didn't know Tampa Bay was full of the things! used to go for blues at Hatteras, but never fished for "strippers". what bait do they go for ? twenties? LOL! AOH

    started a topic any fly fishermen/ladies out there?

    any fly fishermen/ladies out there?

    gotta love trout fishing with a fly rod. the places you find trout are so beautiful that just BEING there is cool. to sit quietly on a midstream rock & burn one while watching them rise to the hatch is incredible... am i alone here? armedoldhippy
