Back on the Clarion

     With the lack of winter we have been having here in the Northeast, the normal ice fishing months have been put on hold.  Normally this would make for a boring winter, but when you have the Clarion river in your backyard it can make for some great late season trout fishing.  This big boy was caught the day after Valentines Day.  Even with water temps in the low to mid 30s this big brown was very eager to smash a streamer that was just barely under the surface.  He came at it so hard that his entire head come out of the water with it before I could even set the hook.  Also pictured are a couple of flies that I tied up the day before just for this situation that produced very well for us all day long.
