How to make it through a Chicago Winter:

Go Fishing as much as possible.  
I'm peering out the window, watching our first winter storm, and thanking myself for having escaped the city a few days ago to fish Steelhead in Michigan before this little cold snap put a lock-down on trips for a while.  
Really fun day on the river, exploring new water and discovering some great runs up north.
 A full day of swinging flies, covering miles of river and Grant hooks-up with this day saver in the final hour as the light gets low in the sky and ice thickens on the guides. Yeah!
I've spent countless hours fishing and as many miles driving after these things, but it never gets old!
