In the immortal words of Billy Connolly there is no such thing as bad weather, just poor choice of clothes!

Tomorrow the fish will hopefully agree and get dressed for the occasion. All jokes aside, let’s spare a thought for those less able to get warm and sleep comfortably during this latest spate of  inclement weather

…Thank you.

I strive to maintain a sunny disposition in my approach to life, and here’s my spin on catching fish in cold water:

If you look at the molecular structure of water and are familiar with hydrogen bonding, you are probably aware that Oxygen saturation increases as  temperature approaches zero. There are countless benefits of this phenomenon to aquatic, oxygen dependent life forms. I have made a mental note to expand (no pun intended) on this in a separate posting, for now let’s keep it simple with the following formula:
cold water = more O2 = harder fighting fish

For sake of elegance I’ll say no more… I’ll be at the lake in the morning!
