With that said, if you have any reports, please do not spot burn, but any information you can supply is always a help; time of day, tide, weather conditions, depth of ice,:eek: severity of snow drifts:D & any other pertinent information. Do make the most of the month guys-nothing wrong with tying flies & don't forget BARNFEST 2010

Ron, it is so cold here in Cape May, it is impossible to burn a spot. Not even with a flame thrower.:D On my way up to therapy this morning the creeks up to the parkway were pretty well frozen it looked like the ducks were finding it hard to find any water.

I spent the weekend in Strathmere visiting my dad who is not doing that great but hanging in there, and cleaning up his house. Just in case I brought along a new colton 7wt and a well used colton 9wt, waders, stripping basket and flies. Not much warmer then 25, strong winds on saturday and we got 6+ inches of snow, not the best for fly fishing. The closest I got to flyfishing was walking the point with a beer in my hand...

No dancing the jig yet, but each day there seems to be a little less swelling in the leg and they keep working the muscles pretty good at each theraphy session. Everyday it feels a little better. I still feel like I am progressing right on schedule.
John, sorry to hear about your dad. With the winter blast it was not the best place to spend the weekend and it would certainly wake you up if you went out side. We seemed to get it the worst. We officially had 10 inches and I had to hire some one to dig me out.

This may tickle your funny bone.
'What do you call a Clouser deep minnow this time of year?'
'A dry fly!'
It's old - but it still works.
You're gonna' need that kid to dig you out again on Saturday - last I heard they were calling for 8" to 12" or more in Cape May.

Are you down in Florida? Have the water temps bounced back?

Actually was in the water yesterday. Friend lost a prop in his canal & I went for it. 69 degrees so yes it has warmed a little. Now if the wind would quit----.
