I Am a Spring Man - Michael Koester
I love Spring, when the syrup of life is flowing into nature and everything comes to life. The sun will get warmer and the days longer… Hell yeah, I love Spring. Today though, I sit in my warm house feeling like a young kid waiting for Santa. Being the sixteenth of December 2009, it’s not what you think...
A few weeks back, two friends and I had the idea to fish the last session of the year on a private lake. The weather was typical for our area, cold (about minus three degrees Celsius). As I began prebaiting, I became worried the lake would be frozen over during the weekend of our session.
Earlier today, I met with my friend at the lake to see it still open! My thermometer read a temperature of below zero and a water temp. of three degrees Celsius; not so good. A very cold night could mean solid ice. Turning on the TV, I hear the weatherman forecasting a bit of snow and temperatures of around zero. Yes! I then get a phone call from Guido, “look outside, it’s snowing mate, wouldn’t it be nice to show a carp in snowy conditions?”. Yes it would!
Now I am running around like a young, excited child. Wouldn’t it be fine to take a few pictures with snow and carp? Well, I’ll keep you informed. My fingers are crossed that Mr. Frost is kind to us and does not take the lake for himself :-)
Well my friends, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year…and may all your dreams come true.
