Dangers of Winter Fishing

While I'm sure almost everybody has heard about the \"tsunami\" that came down the Gallatin River about a month ago, we wanted to make sure that everybody understands that with winter comes more danger than normal.  These warmer temps we are currently having will make ice dams more liable to fail and as you can see in the video, it isn't something to take lightly.  So while you're out there enjoying our wonderful sport of fly fishing, make sure that you are aware of your surroundings and be smart!
