Gambling on the conditions and winning

Like most of country, we here in Jackson are getting a big
dose of winter weather lately; not really anything new for us,
but worth noting none the less. This past week a system of
snow storms has brought continuous moisture to our area,
adding to a good snowpack. While it’s easy to become a
hermit in these conditions, it’s always good to get out of the
house, especially when escape comes in the form of a fishing
trip. So, when my neighbor and fellow fishing guide, Chris
Stump, invited me to join him yesterday, I said yes.

Despite the winter storm warning and snow covered roads,
Chris drove us to freedom. Expectations were low; maybe
hook a few fish while donning 20 layers of long underwear,
wool, flannel, down and Gore-Tex. Fortunately, the weather
cleared and the fish gods smiled, rewarding our dedication.
Fishing was fast and furious and at the end of the day all we
could do was laugh.
