From what I've heard, the fishing was good this weekend despite the cold and snow. Some brave souls spent the weekend, one they will surely remember and reminise, battering the cold-cold waters of Taney.


These guys were just heading out this morning.


These guys staying next door roughed it... of sorts.

Wow, that would be pretty interesting if they did sleep in that tent this weekend. I could think of better places to stay in the winter time, even though I have been guilty of sleeping in a tent in the middle of winter! :( Okay, I had to, it was Boy Scouts! :D

Well I wouldn't want anyone to think I'm a wimp, but I'm glad I live close and can afford to go another time. :ph34r:

Today's release is tomorrows gift to another fisherman.

Actually fishing was pretty good Sunday morning even though it was ridiculously cold. I was only able to fish for a couple hours before having to head back to Springfield and even with the cold, i hated to leave.

I lost what would probably have been biggest trout of my life, certainly the biggest on a fly. <_< I'm not really sure what happened other than he simply let go of it. Someone needs to school me on the finer points of the hook set--seriously I probably lose (or miss) more than I catch and have only recently gotten into the "wade into the frigid water and fling lighter than air objects" sort of thing so I'm not exactly a pro at this.

(Although I've been having more fun doing this than any other form of fishing yet)

Anyone have any pointers or words of wisdom?

Hey chief,

No expert here, but since i loosened my drag(not to the point of backlash) I set alot harder. My drag is set lose enought for a hard set then is adjusted appropriately during the fight.
