So What?

This in from Rick Danger's January 3rd trip to Nacoochee Bend:

So what if it’s only 17 degrees, so what if the wind chill was 3, so what if everything on your rod freezes including the reel, so what if you can’t feel your fingers and toes:  when you hook and land your first fish on the third cast the rest is…well… irrelevant. This picture of me was on the 3rd cast 2nd weight/depth adjustment. The fish were hot and keying in on Soft Hackles, Prince Nymphs, and red and tan San Juan’s in the sunshine and pink in the darker pools.

I don’t know how many I hooked up and landed, I usually lose track after the first one, but I helped my two buddies catch and land around 10-12 each. The population of fish in those holes are outstanding and I was surprised how healthy they are, Great job managing that section.  Thanks again you guys we had a fantastic day on the Bend.
