As the snow tapers off and the temperature drops, we head into a solid 36 hours of butt-ass cold weather. The weatherman says -20 or more (or less?) coming Friday night, and that “Real Feel” map says -40 all over the region. We’re not coming into work today. No need to be here for shuttles and we don’t like the idea of staff or friends driving in sketchy conditions. Sara and Braden will roll in Saturday around noon when the temperatures hit the zero mark. Hopefully.
So, what can you do on a day like today? Not going outside is the primary goal, so what can we do inside that’s fishy? Personally, I’m planning on cleaning my half of the bedroom (Seriously Julie, I’m going to do it this time. Probably after Mike & Mike, though.).
First off, let’s watch a few video’s. On Friday morning you can head on over to the Orvis blog for the Friday Film Festival. Phil Monahan usually puts up 10 or 12 of the newest and best fly fishing videos every Friday, so we don’t have to. I did find this one in my video feed that I really like. It hardly has any views or likes, but the camera work and editing are fantastic. And it’s nice to watch some relaxed Steelheaders that catch fish. Really good stuff.
Warning: this is a foreign film from Canada and there are no subtitles.
