What do you get when you mix ice and fly fishing?
What is flyce fishing you may ask? Chances are you've probably never heard of it. That's because I just recently made that term up. It's a combination of fly/ice fishing. Ok, before watching this, I have to give you the backstory.
We were bored on a cold February morning and decided that instead of tying flies, we would test out my new furled leader. We decided to take my kids and go to an urban pond that had been stocked with rainbows a few months ago. On the surface, this does not seem like much of a challenge (these fish were hand fed for 90% of their lives), until you realize that the surface you will be fishing on is ice! After walking around the pond seeing nothing but ice and about to give up, we spotted a 30ft x 30ft section of open water. To our surprise, there were actually fishing feeding on top! We had no idea what they were eating, but we threw on a size 16 elk haired caddis. The rest of the story is better told in video format...
