Hunting and Fishing: Armchair adventures great for beating weather

My grandfather used to argue, with considerable validity, that the basic explanation for February being the shortest month of the year was because mean, miserable weather invariably characterized it. Most hunting has come and gone, he would say from the comfort of a rocking chair pulled up close to a wood-burning stove, "and decent fishing won't start for several weeks." Warming to his subject, he would continue, "February is just plain ornery and early March ain't much better."
