The day turned into mostly a walk along the water observing fish and wildlife. I did manage to hook one brown trout but lost him to furious leaping. The bitter cold had me fighting the iced guides so I limited my casting to quality lies. A couple other fish swirled or followed but they just weren't eating much today on the bugger.
I did get to watch a mink come downstream along the undercut bank chasing fish. It was fun to watch him do his hunting and he was trying to pounce on fish as well leaping into the air and coming down on them.
