Arctic Cold

I tried to fish this morning.  I should have known better as the forecast forewarned me of pain and despair. But still I went... driven by the blind desire to fish...trial some very cool gear...and mildly quench my never ending  OCD affliction.

I had forgotten just how short these Arctic session need to be and left the river nursing my  burning cold fingers and toes. 

Today old man winter won a small victory but I will be back...

Age is definately becoming a negative factor. Just have to keep one step ahead and outsmart the reaper. Larger floats and Hyde boats. ;0)
