Default You have got to be kidding me.....

Hello from beautiful British Columbia.

Officially I'm working this week, but.... lying next to my steel-toed boots are a couple rods, my waders, and a Patagucci sling packed full of flies. I'm planning on hitting this gorgeous mountain river early next week. It's one of those rivers that has more bears on the banks than fishermen and you're more likely to see Bigfoot than a drift boat. Just nothing but empty water, big beautiful fish, and me.

So... while I'm sorting stuff out and thinking ahead, I flick on the weather forecast for when I'm heading out and BAM!!!! SNOW!! An all day snow- and a "high" of 33. Seriously?!?!

I mean, didn't we just get over all of that stuff?? The runoff haunted me until August! I'm just not ready for this. I mean... I needed therapy when spring refused to show up just a few short months ago. Noooo, please not yet. For a minute, I thought I was having an acid flashback, but then I remembered that I've never even smoked a joint... can't be that. So then I checked another station in case this was somebody's idea of a joke. Snow. Sigh.

I am now officially 100% FOR global warming. There, I said it.

Thanks for that. You should get another green dot for that one.

The days haven't shortened up that much yet. I was looking forward to a couple good hours in the evenings and enjoying some nice BC sunsets.

That's Canada eh...

Oh, I'll be out there for sure. Go fishing or sit in a motel room and keep up with the Kardashians? That's a no brainer.

I could've done without the snow though. I'm still dealing with PTSD from last year's never ending winter and I'm just not quite ready to start that up again.

I'll count my Blessings and shut up now.

PS- Somebody please mail me a coat....

Sounds like someone needs some polar fleece big boy pants ! I feel your pain. Overnight lows in the 30's coming up this week.
We were in a big box store on the Saturday before Labor Day and they had prelit Christmas trees on display. Bummed me out.
I just got some studded soles for my Korkers from a member on the forum. That should make it a little easier to get to the water this year. Crossing ice on wet felt soles can provide some hilarious moments for your fishing buddies to watch ! I just didn't think I'd be needing those soles this soon
Tight lines, it will work out for you.
