Winter in Pennsylvania is the most ridiculous season there is. There is no stability in the weather what so ever. It can go from 10 to 60 degrees without warning, one day you could be wearing four layers and stalking carp in the snow other days a single micro fiber will do.
Along with my layers of clothing I like to vary my fly selection this time of year as well. During the winter months I tend to use brighter patterns to grab their attention. Sometimes a drab color is not enough motivation for a lethargic fish to go out of its way for your fly.
