had to get out and try some new stuff i got this winter so headed to the ark.fished 11-mile sat for maybe the last ice fishing trip.caught 2 kept 1 18 " lost a few. lots of hits but i was not hooking. anyway back to the river. caught 5 browns in 3 hrs. lost a couple. the water was real cold and all were caught in the deepest holes.best fly a purple prince,next best a red copper john. it felt good to fish moving water for a change. from now on i hope to keep doing that. spring is just about here.
