Within one week we went from a cold snow storm to warm springs days.
As I had to renew one of my fishing licenses I opted to fish the stream for
the first time this year.

Off course it would be difficult as all the snow had melted and all ditches
and stream where in flooding stage.
The spot I choose to start my fishing session had fast colored water.
Whatever I tried I did not get any bites.

I tried an hour or so to no avail, as I had some time to kill before 
picking up the license I did some sightseeing in the area.
I went up what the locals call the mountain which is the first major 
hill in an otherwise flat landscape.

The license process did not take up much time so I had time left over
to spend at the water.
Off course I could not end my first fishing day in a blank so I went to
the one and only spot that could save me.

The good spot also suffered from the high colored water.
The plus side however was the large current seem with slow moving water.
Fly of choice was the squirminator that was heavy enough to get deep and
had a large enough profile to be detectable by the fish.

It took some time before I had the right depth and speed figured out but
then I ran quickly into fish.
Small fish but at least some action in difficult circumstances.
I was happy to end this nice day with the first fish of the season.

Very nice pictures as usual. They help keep one's spirit up when still homebound by snow and ice, and for quite a few weeks more to boot!  Hope to see more shortly.

Marcel:  Glad to see someone in this world got out to fish.  I ditto Kid:  Too much snow and ice to be out.  Love the pheasant pix, my favorite quarry.  I am sure you ended the day with a visit to one of your now famous eateries.  Those pix are fun to see as well.

Be well and keep us up to date.

I am sure happy to be out and about again... the weather turned 180 degrees in a weeks time.

From snowstorm and ice to sunshine and warm temperatures due to a southern winds from Africa.

Heard the great cranes fly over the city in the evening on the way to northern climes so 
spring has sprung.

Alas no eateries with curfew and lockdown in place although I did have a cup of coffee with

the pub crew as they where working outside tidying up the place.

 

This is how it looked around here Feb. 11th.
