Big Fred and I headed over to the coast last weekend for a little “Redwood-Steelhead Therapy.” Fishing wasn’t spectacular, but mission accomplished. Ahhhhhhhhhh!
So, we’re out steelhead fishing deep in the middle of nowhere today and about 2 miles from the truck, we spot a TV in a tree. What the??
Rather than speculate how it got there, I figured I’d give ya’ll the chance to give your best guess…use the comments section below and “Caption This.”
I’m always on the hunt for the perfect foul weather boating jacket and I think I may have just found it: Stormr Typhoon Jacket. A favorite of Northeast commercial crabbers are serious striper anglers and surfcasters, the Typhoon, I can say from experience, is equally at home along the Pacific coast.
At the heart of the Typhoon jacket is what STORMR calls “Neoprene Core Technology,” which features a super thin layer of neoprene that is sandwiched between moisture-wicking fleece and a durable nylon outer shell that is coated with an extra water repellant shell (all layers are 4-way stretch). The result of which is a coat that is waterproof, windproof and also has positive buoyancy…which will help you, rather than drag you down, should you go into the water.
At first glance, you can tell by the burly zippers, heavily taped seams and waterproofing that this jacket is bulletproof!
Here’s a close up of the waterproof pockets..
So, Big Fred, Nick Amato & I are in a Chinese food joint for dinner tonight, somewhere in Washington, just finishing up and talking about our fishing plan for tomorrow when the bill and fortune cookies arrive.
Nick says…”Okay, the fortune is going to tell us how fishing is going to be tomorrow.”
Fred breaks his cookie, pulls out the fortune and reads it! Crazy, huh?
Making it even more of a “no way” moment is the fact that fishing today had been very tough. The water is low, the temps extremely cold and the steelhead returns very poor in this part of the world and only 1 steelie landed between the three of us — plus Jim Teeny, who had also been with us earlier.
Now, however, I’m very exited to see what the action’s like the AM!
