I just got back from a short excursion, and am soaked and shivering. Why did I do that again? Oh Yes, that's right, largemouth bass.
I went down to one of my favorite ponds, carrying both fly and spinning rod. I tried flies first but got no response. I then picked up the spinning rod with a tiny torpedo. The fish approved. I managed a dink and one bigger bass. The larger gave a good fight but I kept him out of the weeds.
Regardless of weather and comfort, I love to catch fish! There is always a brief spell of warmth when pulling a gorgeous wild trout out of an ice choked stream in January or catching a big walleye on a cold, windy, rainy spring day.
