todays fishing 1-6-08

I went out to the local lake today, trying to make the best of my last day before winter break is over and I have to go back to school.
Today was the only day out of this storm that I really was able to fish with out getting rained on. I took the 3wt and 6wt with me, sinking line on the 6 and floating on the 3. I started working my way around the small lake, without any action. I changed flies, mixed up my presentation, and still nothing. Not even a nibble. I wasn't even seeing any trout rising.
After a little while I started seeing some fsh rising right near me, only about 10-15' off the bank. I casted to them with different flies, presentations, etc. And nothing would trick one. Here I was trying to outsmart a fish with a brain the size of a pea and getting defeated. Well, sometimes you just have to accept defeat and let the fish win...I got skunked.

    Some of the good things about getting skunked is that it deflats your ego and gives you the opportunity to spend hours trying to figure out why.
