I haven't found magazines to be very helpful as far as tactics and techniques. They tend to explore topics at a somewhat superficial level or rehash the same old things.

I've got severe cabin fever. I haven't been fishing since mid-October. Not much fishing in Indiana during the winter.

I've been tying flies, reading books, and planning trips.
