One Beautiful Trout

One of my favorite anglers Don Atkinson sent me this photo of a stunning 26 inch speckled trout he caught on fly in Pine Island Sound just last week.  I wasn't with him on this trip but it was obviously a beautiful and warm day since Don is wearing short sleves and there's barely a ripple on the water.  Compare that to this morning's 44 degrees and 15 knot wind blowing down Matlacha Pass and it's enough to make me bash my head against a wall and wonder if spring will ever get here.  I was actually wearing four layers on my boat yesterday and I still never felt warm.  We should be casting to tarpon right now, not talking about frost warnings in SW Florida.  Damn this Global Warming!
