I have been itching to get on the water since March. I love winter here in Michigan, but come March 1, it is time for spring. Alas, this year was not the case.
Even after picking up my Pro Angler, I could do little but work on it in the garage – unless I could use it as an ice cutter.
Today, it was in the 60’s, I was home, and I cut out of work at 5pm. I hit one of my go-to lakes – Lake Sixteen in Orion Township. Quick launch, and I was on the water.
I headed out to the east side of the island, cast out a dark clouser along the drop off, and caught a 9″ large mouth. It would turn out to be the only catch of the evening,
but it was nice to be on the water.
- neoprene socks with the wading boots are perfect for launching in cold water. Even water that gets inside the sock is quickly warmed up.
- the addition of the skeg on the 2015 PA really does change the tracking.
- rudder controls on both sides makes fly line control much easier.
- added a Magnetic Gear Grabbar Mini on the box holder on the mid-hatch – perfect for flies to dry and keep from losing them!
