The Forgetful Angler: January Newsletter

Put on your Christmas socks and head to the lake
Once again it is that awkward time of year when Loveland Fishing Club members look around at one another and ask, "What should we do until spring?"  

For some, it's too damned cold to go fishing.  For others, it's too warm.  Boyd was long frozen over by this time last year; at the moment, ducks are swimming around Marina Inlet.  So for the angler who just can't wait until spring, we have the high country, or we have friends or relatives to visit in Florida.  Or we have Friday morning sessions at the Widow McCoy's, where we can talk until we run out of coffee about places we've been intending to go. 

We also have the club Fishing Calendar, and it is past time that we all give it the attention it deserves -- and time to thank the folks who put together the club fishing dates every month.
