My Fingers Won’t Work


The way the wind and temps have been recently it has been rather cold and today it felt like someone had hit the ends of all my fingers with a hammer, if the wind wasn’t blowing I think the temps would be ok, the rivers are now low and clear, I know were never happy but the water is a little to clear, I thought I would fish at longer range and fish trio, to start off with all I picked up was quite small fish all coming on the nymphs, as I was un hooking the fish my hands kept getting colder and colder, I had by know worked my way to the top of the run and I was freezing, I thought a few more casts and I’m off  as the dry came back towards me it dipped as I lifted the rod I could tell there was a fish on but it again felt small but when I saw it in the water it wasn’t as small as I thought, it really didn’t fight as hard as I would have thought it should, when I landed it my leader was a real mess, I tried to sort it out and my fingers just wouldn’t work so I thought time to go home.
