Snow Fishing

After being stuck in the house for two days because of the snow blocking our road from the outside world, I finally was able to escape to the river for a fish.

My temperature gauge measured a chilling -4c as I parked and tackled up.  I tied on two small glass bead PTN’s and fished up 100 yards of river. Even with the low temperature, fish where still very hungry and I was soon catching grayling with enough regularity for me to forget my freezing hands.. It wasn’t until I lost one of my flies to a snag, that I realised my hands were just too cold to tie on a replacement!!
