Winter is the least popular time for fly-fishing. However, a small number of fly-fishing diehards sneak out to their favorite waters during the winter. Some are big-trout anglers who use streamers to latch onto trout. A few dry-fly purists seek hatches of midges. Most however, me included, favor nymphs for our winter adventures. Winter fly-fishing is not a masochistic exercise in futility. Trout can be caught, sometimes in good sizes and numbers.
