Ice Out Fishing
by Bill Thompson
I don’t think I will take the snow tires off the truck right away, but I think that the worst of the winter is behind us. The last few days of warm weather has got me thinking about fishing for real. Yesterday I went out in front of the shop to cast for the first time since last fall. Casting a fly line on the lawn in the spring is a little like digging out your baseball glove for the first time and playing catch. I didn’t last long as the shoulder gave out pretty quick, but it was gratifying that I still remembered how to cast.
