Well, and maybe I am speaking too soon, but I'll take this winter all year. As I write on January 24th its feels about 60 degrees out at 645am with some wind and rain around. I haven't fished and there has been no first 2019 bass for me although the die hards were out the first few weeks and have a few on the board.
Right before the New Year Joe was out and landed this nice 26" fish that was on the sand eels.
This weekend The Fly Fishing Show returns to the New Jersey Convention and Expo Center Friday through Sunday January 25, 26, and 27. Its always a great show, especially for newcomers to the sport, to meet the legends and pros, watch some casting and fly tying demos, and pick up some gear or fly tying equipment.
