Boy, it's nasty out there. Only the true diehards are out and about today (you can expect a report from Brett tomorrow!). Slush and ice are slowly but surely stealing our rivers from us. I knew this day would come, so here's a link to a piece I wrote in better times that was posted on the new Orvis News blog yesterday. While you're over there poke around on the other O-news blogs, if you haven't already. Lots of great writing and pictures related to all things sporting.
