You’ve been looking at this date on your calendar for weeks, if not months: the point at which cold temperatures will finally give way to Spring weather, and you’ll be able to head out to the pond for your first bout of fishing. And then, on that blessed morning, it strikes you: You should have set a date to go to the outdoor outfitters for some new supplies. But is that necessary?

Cold Hands? Clever Tips to Keep Feelings in Your Fingers when Fishing!

Snowstorms in the Northeast reminded those of us in warmer climates that Winter hasn’t ended yet. But of course, that fact doesn’t have much impact on some intrepid anglers. We’re willing to bet that there were at least a few New York fishing enthusiasts who looked outside as feet of snow fell from the heavens and thought “I think I’ll be able to get out today.” Our first bit of advice for those who will be hitting the frozen pond or icy creek to fish this month: Be safe. Don’t challenge Mother Nature when she decides that living things should...
