Just returned from a 20 minute excursion to the local pond. I'm hanging out in Fancy Gap, VA (still thinking it's Barrow, AK) for the week. Like mentioned, I went fishing earlier after the wind died down and temps in the upper 10's rebounded to the upper to mid 20's. The pond was 70% frozen over, which isn't conducive for fly fishing. We did see two ducks that were having a hard time getting across the pond due to the ice. It was a sight to behold. As I came up and over the hill, I spooked them into the pond were they hit the ice with a thud and spooked several nice fish into deeper water.
It's been cold (rivaling Missoula, MT's low and high temps). The problem is, it's going to just get colder. It's clear outside right now, but freezing rain, sleet, and maybe some snow will move into the area late tonight through tomorrow. There's already at least 8 inches of snow on the ground right now from the last snowstorm 11 days ago. I doubt the fishing will improve over the next few days up here.

I love it up there. My grandparents are currently in the process of moving from the Fancy Gap area to Hillsville (very nice town by the way).
