Happy belated Thanksgiving from Casting Across!
Also, if you’re among the many who get this unofficial holiday off I hope that you’re able to take advantage of today however you choose. Fly fishing, shopping, napping, decorating for Christmas: however you find joy on Black Friday is fine by me.
Outdoors pursuits are certainly a good option. In fact, the oversaturation of doorbusters and pre-Black Friday sales has made Friday a perfect time to get outside. There are a bevy of opportunities to shop online during your turkey coma on Thanksgiving night and throughout the week following this weekend. Today, while everyone is running around, fighting over single-serve coffee machines and Turbo Man dolls, you can be in the woods. It might be a little chilly, but you and your family have a chance do extend the real joy of the table out for another day.
There is something to be said for going fishing on a holiday, or a day immediately abutting a holiday. You’ll get solitude, a chance to zig while the rest of the culture is stressfully zagging, and you’ll be fishing.
Say you do want to do some online shopping. I do have some suggestions:
- Vedavoo has rolled out their 2018 lineup, which includes some new gear and updates to their already fantastic packs.
- Risen Fly‘s already spectacular prices are slashed. If you or your fishing buddies need fly boxes, you’re making a huge mistake by not picking up some from Risen Fly today!
- The Fly Crate has a big discount throughout their whole fly shop. These flies are the real deal, and this is a great way to refresh your stocks (and stockings).
- The Fly Fishing Show tickets will always be well received!
