Damn it’s cold outside, right?
When these deep freeze “bomb cyclones” dip into the normally temperate climes of the American South and leave us all chilled to the bone, I tend to start surfing the travel sites for great deals to points south. Way south. Tropical south.
And that, of course, makes me think of flats fishing for warm-water denizens like bonefish and permit. Or big giant trevally like the fish featured in this 3-year-old video below.
Saltwater fly fishing for a guy living in eastern Idaho is generally an expensive proposition. But when January hits and everything outside is viewed in icy shades of gray and white, sometimes you just need to damn the credit card interest and hit “book.”
Time to head south. Way south. Time to do some stripping.
