We had a lot of fun on the Flathead River in Columbia Falls, MT last week braving subzero temperatures on a beautiful day with bluebird skies.
What a perfect day to go fishing! Actually, it was way colder than I typically appreciate for winter flyfishing, but we wanted to put the ColdAvenger Hunter face mask to the test. As suspected, our faces stayed toasty and we couldn’t feel the biting air in our lungs and airway. As you know, it’s hard to fish if you’ve got your face all smashed down deep inside your collar, and if you wear a regular face mask you end up with that nasty snotty wetness all over your face. But we found that we could hold our heads up in the cold air and keep the moisture away from our faces, thanks to the ColdAvenger ventilation technology. If you have any questions about how it works, check out our health science sheets here.
We also had a great time breaking in the new River Camo Products from Montana Fly Company. They just came out with new reels, fly boxes, forceps, nippers and tying tools in four different designs of fish skin and camo prints. The MFC office is located just up the street from the river and just a block away from our PR pals at Outside Media, so it’s always fun to get the gang together and huck a line in any weather! Here’s a pic of Outside Media’s Sammi getting ready to set up the photo shoot.
Thanks to Canyon Florey for taking some great pictures! You can see more of Canyon’s work on here on his website.
