Lessons learned with cold hands…

When I arrived at the “other” river the conditions seemed just right – as I was getting my permit I ran into Neil “Trout Machine” Sinclair of Double Decker fame (double deer hair wings allow the fly to be used in the heavy water where big fish like to sit) -”if he is here” I [...]
