Rung in the new year with some frozen-water fishing. Headed up north with Brian (his pics below) for my first true ice fishing experience ever.
Hey, I'd rather be on the river, but who can complain on a day like this?
Cut travel time in half and fill the freezer...I can handle that.
Should be an adequate way to pass the winter. Cheaper than heading west to the tribs. Now, if I could only find some way to stock my fly boxes while I'm wasting time on the ice...
She'll do. Don't mind the surprised look, she's just so totally into tying, she can't hold back.
First flies ever tied...
