People ought to stop whining about how bad winter is here in New England. Our winter is very mild. I dare those that whine and complain about a CT winter to spend a year in northern Minnesota. Anyway, I love fishing in the winter, and I'm not talking ice fishing. Winter is one of the only time you can be almost assured of solitude on a CT trout stream. It is also often just drop dead gorgeous. Snow, running water, and deep dark forests are where I feel most at home. Second, the shoreline in warmer months; third, anywhere else fish live. And down there somewhere near the bottom of the list is 'indoors'.
So, even when the wind is ripping, the sky is cloudy and threatening, and the snow is sloppy and wet, I'd rather be testing the limits, trying to catch fish when they are least likely to eat.
