21 days away, till the trout and I start to play!

It's so close, I can feel it. It didn't hurt that we had the Super bowl champion packers keeping our attention until Monday of this week. I have to say that last Winter seemed to last MUCH longer. I've already starting getting my "winter gear" ready for the March 5th early trout opener in Wisconsin. I've got plenty of grey leeches tied, to slowly (almost painfully) creep across the bottom in hopes some freezing Brown trout to accept my offering.
I strictly nymph in the early season because I despise midge fishing even when its warm, and  have my casting stroke to as honed as it can be. So, the 5x fluorocarbon leaders, the tungsten flies, and the "strike indicators" (bobbers),along with fleece lined gloves that probably wont be taken off until April. None the less, its getting close, and I can't wait.
