One good side effect of the cold weather: shad kill. We will probably see a shad kill this winter, the way temps are trending. If you hear about it, or start to see dead 1-2" shad in the drift, it is...

It happens every year, the fishing on the Hooch gets very tough. I call it the winter doldrums. Think "small and slow". Essentially, you have to hit them in the nose with a tiny fly. It is a good...
