I would go to a pond that was not too large or overwhelming and fish at ice out in ideal conditions to get my confidence up, then work from there. I am saying this mainly because I wouldn't bank on hammering them during the fall. They can be very finicky in the fall and often require some sort of hot insect event to get them on fire. Otherwise it may be a fish here and a fish there. I'm heading out to 2 ponds this weekend we'll see how it goes! good luck
Thanks for sharing this. It gives me hope. Fly fishing stillwater is tough!
Oh I'd rather go and journey where the diamond crest is flowing...

Got that right! However, when you net what you could potentially net, it's all worth it.
"The finest gift you can give to any fisherman is to put a good fish back, and who knows if the fish that you caught isn't someone else's gift to you?"
