We took advantage of the calm before the storm today. The puffy, hand warmers and thermos were first in the line up. Iced up guides, frozen line and weak camera batteries ruled until about noon. Two brookies and two salmon were worth all the pain. I would have liked to have gotten a photo of the larger salmon but due to the dying camera and unruly model, it didn't work out. If you've ever tried to take a photo of a large landlock by yourself you know of what I speak.
Nymphing ruled without much effort. Longer leader (10'x 5X), two fly rig. The color blue is coming into it's own, followed by patterns with a little bit of pink. Sizes 14-20. Simple rigs now until closing. Nothing more frustrating than tying a bunch of knots with frozen digits.
