Cold weather has slowed the caddis hatch but not the fishing.  Dealing with brutal winds can be part of the every day, spring experience here in the Arkansas Valley ( one downside to the beautiful mountain views).  One has to take on the challenges of nature with an appreciation of the opportunity to do so.   Even if that means rippn' lip in the wind.  Don't get the idea that the water temps are to cold to justify feeding through the majority of the day.  The fish in the Arkansas are getting fat on nymphs and each other.  With the cranefly's hatching along with the caddis and bwo's a few fish are already willing to smash a dry.  Soon we will see the right temps and conditions to get the majority of fish on the banks and looking up for a big twitched dry fly.
