[quote:2wc56aga]I still do a little trout fishing during the winter, I do a little trolling and I spin fish a local pond. The fly rods get less action.

I have seen fish rising quite a bit in the winter actually, mostly on the reservoirs, makes me wish I had brought the fly rod, when i see the odd mayfly-midge hatch.
Last winter I was watching a 6lb+ wild brown that had got into the reservoir continuously rise to midges and ignore my spinner in winter last year… though it would have been a tricky fight on the light tippet needed for small midge dries.
