The last of winter in the Driftless… maybe…

I haven’t fished as much this winter but I managed to get out yesterday. The water is still clear and I’m still learning how things have changed with the massive flooding we’ve had. We have a big tournament coming up called the Driftless One Fly which will be great.

Basic premise: teams of 4. You get one hand tied fly and when it breaks off you are done. The bigger the fish, the more points it is worth. It is a fund raising benefit and should be a great time. It is always a gamble what to throw but I will tell you the Fricks Fix seems to always produce.

Here are some photos from yesterday. The nudge hatch was insane. So cool to see the tiny bugs on the snow. And speaking of snow, we still have lots to melt off before the tourney at the end of the month.
