Okay, I'm a day early, but I'd like to wish a Merry Christmas to all the folks who follow DTA.

Even thought I don't post too much, I like this site better than my others, because, 1) it's local to me, duh, I've fished with some of you, 2) it's not all fly fishers, even though I am, 3), I see a lot of folks who cross-post on the half-dozen other forums I follow, and I never see those folks here.

Enjoy the coming Trout season - except for you Iowans who can fish straight through!

Same to you - and I'll echo every single thing you just said.

Here's to a great season in the Driftless ahead to all of you...

Happy holidays, Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, or however you roll.

Good luck in 2019. Tight lines.

Happy so many enjoy this forum.
As some may know, I suffer from Lymes that has greatly curtailed my Trout fishing.
This must stop.
My "season" will start January 1st in Mn/&/or Iowa and progress to WI opener
Tight lines and enjoy quality time with family and friends.

Happy Holidaze all! Hope everyone had a good Christmas.

Took the dogs out along a local trout stream on the 24th and looked outstanding and was wishing I could fish it.

Only about 10 days now!


There they are!


Looking forward to fishing with the hound again soon. Maybe opening weekend.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year as well as any holiday you celebrate!

I can't wait to get to the Driftless and rekindle my relationship with "Frank the Fish!"

All the best to each of you!
