Look, it is a bit nippy out there, but that’s even better, because when the weather’s cool, crisp and cold like this, those salmon and trout will be jumping the waves. Is it the water? Is it that cold? Nope, it’s not that, those scaly creatures are well-equipped to handle extreme low-dipping temperatures. But it’s been known that not every keen fisherman has. Among the fishing gear he should always be packing in for his next fishing trip will be warm clothing and protective clothing. The warm clothing is pretty obvious, no?
It keeps you warm in the extreme cold. Your limbs are not encumbered and you can move your rod and line around swiftly enough. That’s now another thing that should be mentioned. No matter how quick you are with the line, those darn critters seem to be moving a lot faster. Well, it’s in their nature to do so. Beneath and above the surface of the gushing streams, these natural wonders are in their element. They are agile and able to duck and dive from any known or instinctive danger. Have you ever watch a grizzly try to paw one of them?
It is quite a tussle. But it is a sight to behold. As tough as the task is, the bear gets it right most times. And those fish really do look dumb, don’t they? Maybe they’re not so smart after all. It means nothing if you don’t have the right bait and tackle in amongst your gear. Bears are hungry and they need to eat. Lucky for them, salmon and trout tastes so fine. They’re not so desperate themselves, and maybe that’s good thing for them. Means they’ll survive. But they’re picky eaters, even though it doesn’t look like it.
