Is It Still Winter?

 
I, YellowStoneFly, stepped outside the other day and saw my shadow and said to myself, "damn it's still cold." Contrary, a good friend of the Idaho Fly Fishers Blog stopped me in the hall and showed to me a photo of a 6-7 pound rainbow he had just caught on Washington's upper Columbia River.
