Ammonoosuc Chapter Trout Unlimited February/March Newsletter
The first day of spring, March 19th, is just around the corner, and while that doesn't mean we will be enjoying spring weather it definitely means we can be preparing for another fishing season. If you are like me you have been watching lots of fishing videos, restocking flies, looking at your new fly rod/rods, and walking around in those new pair of waders you absolutely needed to buy. You might be so impatient to fish you've decided to take a trip like Art Greene and Joe Homer. They will be enjoying some fishing down in Patagonia this winter and we look forward to hearing many fish stories from them when they return. For the rest of us it will have to be skiing, snowmobiling, or whatever gets you through the winter months. Have a great February and March!!
