I flyfished a local public pond on December 26...day after Christmas. Still had open water. As I write this today, December 29, the local ponds are once again (4th time this season?) covered in ice, and it appears they will remain that way until Spring.
I flyfished for 3 hours in 33 degree F weather, used a chartreuse microjig under a strike indicator. Caught 45 small crappies.
I'll post a separate blog entry detailing my year, and giving all the year-end statistics. :)
