Winter storm fishing

   I love to fly fish in the snow. I have no idea why though as i am not a fan of snow or cold weather. So I got out this afternoon in Cato. Which is a snow storm that hit the northeast today.  The snow was very heavy at times and with lots of huge snow clumps falling from trees while i fished. Bombarding the stream.
    I fished the afternoon away, with little results till i switched out my nymphs for an infamous pink worm. Then it was on like donkey kong. I hooked and landed a really nice rainbow, that was a blast on my 2wt. As well as several wild browns. 
  It took awhile but eventually my hands got numb to the point of pain and  I was getting tired of getting beaten by the falling chunks of snow from the trees. It was as if i was getting hit by snow balls.  So with frozen limbs and more than four, I headed on home.

Out before the storm

  Well I got out to fly in the late afternoon. Hit my local limestoner. The weather was mild with a slit chill to the air, with the impending cold front approaching.  Thanks to recent rain, the flow was very nice. Which was good since no bugs were active. So I tied on a pair of small nymphs, a high test hares ear and a rubber diamond ducky, both in a size #16.
  Didnt take long to find some wild browns in a nice run. The pair of nymphs caught equally but it seemed the ducky got some more aggressive takes.  The high test hairs ear was tied on a scud hook with a small black tungsten bead. The ducky was beadless with black legs.
 As the sun dipped behind the ridgeline, the breeze got even colder and it just felt like snow was on the way. So with no coat on, I headed on home.
