I got out for some early-season streamer fishing with Orvis rod designer Shawn Combs and fishing writer John Van Vleet. Unfortunately, the overnight lows were in the 20’s with some snow flurries, and the fish weren’t responding to streamers in the morning. I switched over to nymphs and began drifting them along the soft seams of a deep pool. I few drifts later, my indicator shot under the surface, and I was tight to my best trout of 2013 (so far). Hopefully my luck will continue this season.
