Got out fishing yesterday, despite ominous weather report. When I pulled up to the stream, it had been snowing, with flake size and downfall intensity increasing... Good time to try out my impervious winter jacket: it did hold up very well - kept me warm and dry. The fishing was perfect - I had the entire stream to myself. Snow just pouring down... every time I'd move after standing blue-heron-still for a while I'd slough off big chunks of accumulated wet snow. The fish were everywhere they're supposed to be - got 8-9 from one hole and 12 overall from 10-12 PM. Every sight I took in seemed worthy of a photograph. I really wanted to stay out there for the entire day. However, the rate of accumulation started to get a little scary, so when I broke off my flies at noon, I walked back to the car... thinking I might drive to another section of the stream. However, the car would not move from its parking spot. Every time I tried, I just slipped further into the ditch.... No panic - couldn't think of a better place to be stranded, and I wasn't expected home for hours. So I just kept trying - digging, spinning, digging, looking... Finally a local couple came and we pushed the car onto the road. The drive home was a white-knuckler... I aborted the remains of the fishing day, thinking the longer I stayed out the tougher it'd be to get back to home base. It all turned out well. No big fish, but plenty of great action, and a fantastic, memorable day on the water.

That's a beautiful picture of the snowy stream scene. Looks like one that should be hanging on a wall.

That's actually a path up on the high bank of the stream... I should have taken more pics of the water itself: big heavy flakes dissolving into the flow - very good memory.

Make sure you click on that first snow picture of the open area in the woods (to blow it up to full size) - it's a great shot and it does a fair job of carrying the feeling of what it was like to be out there during that event.
