Noahs Arc, you are indeed insane. I love Steelhead but this weather were having is way beyond my hardcore threshold.

Even my sheep and LLama know when to get in their shelter and nap out.

You guys sound like a bunch of old ladies, besides from some ice on the guides it was a nice day to be out. The best part was no people

yup, tamahi on up was very calm with little to no wind and about 5 people fishing, keep your line off the water and icing up is not too big a deal

Better weather/days coming everyone! Bad weather gives time to make sure all your leaks and gear is in the up n up and your ready to go in a moments notice.

Was going to head out fishing... But then notIced the water graph was being sneaky... I'll go check later, but me thinks it may not be looking good already.  The melt has just gotten started...

apparently it's not looking great - 6 inches visibility currently and dropping.

Cheers,
