You got to go fish a real river lol. Take a day off and explore the Colorado River it'll pay off and you'll have a memorable day.Good video Dan! My local tailwater has been at 0cfs for over a month while they repair the Dam above it. Makes me sad. I guess I will be tying alot of flies this winter and fishing less.
Hey I will fish a bigger river any chance I get! It is just a matter of time availability. I can always wake up early and go to hit my local spots before work. Cant always take the time commitment to fish bigger water.You got to go fish a real river lol. Take a day off and explore the Colorado River it'll pay off and you'll have a memorable day.
lol, so funny ... out of everything in the video, i've caught by far the most crap for making crappy coffee 🤣 gonna have to up my game if i ever feature coffee in another video!!! appreciate the comments and disclaimer about handling fish in winter time!Nice. Appeared to be a good day all around!
Winter is by far the best time to be on the water if you like being alone and catching quality fish. When I do run into others it's like running into friend; unlike summer where we are all just another "yahoo". lol
Jet boils are a must have. Nothing better than getting a few miles away from the asphalt or dirt pack and having a shot of whiskey with a hot cup of coffee. Oh, get rid of the freeze dried coffee and go with a french press. lol
Some info for all the new Covid anglers:
As always, go barbless. Why handle fish when some slack will set them free? Pulling fish out of ~37 degree water into freezing air while trying to remove a hook can result in damage to eyes and gills as the water freezes. Keep them wet and use your towel to dry off your un-gloved hands. The water is warm compared to the air on most days and gloves remove the fish's protective "slime". Ever see those fish with "cotton" on them? Some is natural but much is due to poor handling; parasitic and fungal infections are a result. If you plan on releasing them, take care of them. And don't put them in the snow unless your planning on keeping them either. Catch and release concerns for winter fishing
Looking forward to your next post.
I once drank that stuff too. Freeze dried coffee. Yeah. I've been there. Then one day I realized just how good a cup of GOOD coffee really is way back, far from the jungle. With smaller and smaller boilers it's the dang French press consumes the space. So worth it. Try it. Bet you money you throw the freeze dried stuff in the trash and become a snob like me.
