Sleep, Dreams, and the Birthday Donut

It's December in Montana and winter hitting us hard.....LIES. It was over 40 F this past weekend, so Bucko, Blakely, and Matt Breuer (of Ponoi River Co.) traveled over to the Mo to harass some of it's trouts. We stopped by Headhunters Fly Shop in the morning and caught up with SOL and Sara. It was a relaxing day on the water, for sure. Several good trout came to hand. Breuer and Blakely dropped spey bombs all over the river, while Bucko and I caught fish with our single handers. It was a little tougher to fish with three people. Our next trip with this motley crew will involve boats. It was Blakely's birthday, so we stopped and got a fabled Birthday Donut from the Donut Hole in Helena.

I got a chance to test out Glacier Glove's Pro Angler Glove. While conditions weren't ideal for testing gloves with the temperatures ranging into the 40s, I gave them a thorough inspection. Look for a review of the gloves in the next couple days. Also stayed tuned because Glacier Glove was generous enough to provide a pair of Pro Angler Gloves for YGF's first gear giveaway.

If you haven't had a chance, check out my interview on the Fish Schtick.

Wahoo: YGF Interview on the FISH SCHTICK

This past week, Brian Bennett of Moldy Chum, Teeg Stouffer of Recycled Fish, and Michael Mauro of Mauro Media contacted me to do an interview with them on their popular podcast The Fish Schtick. I was a little surprised that they wanted to talk to some idiot named Ivan #humblebrag. I got the chance to talk with them on Friday and the podcast was released today. Check it out here. Download it here. Watch out for a lot of "for sures," some stuttering, lots of pauses, and some uhhhhhs an on my part. It is so painful to listen to one's self talk. Also, my breath didn't need to be fresh for a phone interview, but I insisted on chewing a stick of Extra. Terrible life decision.

Silver and Gold

What does Yukon Cornelius love? Silver and Gold. Silver and Gold. What does YGF like? Silver and Gold. Well, more like Rainbows and Browns. Close enough. A video filled with bumbles, abominable snowmen, miners, reindeer, brown trout, and rainbow trout. Consider this the pinnacle of the concept of YGF. It can only go downhill from here.

Music: The Glitch Mob "We Can Make the World Stop"

As always, watch the video in HD on vimeo.

I am releasing this video on YGF and also over on Fly Fishilicious. I wrote up a guest post to go along with the video and she graciously posted it, no matter how poorly written it is. With the holidays around the corner, Jen is generously giving away a Flip Mino HD camera. All you have to do is leave a comment over there. Very cool.
