Grab some popcorn, dim the lights, sit down on the couch and watch some kayak fishing videos.

When I posted this I was in a corporate class and was trying to be discreet. We had a tournament last weekend and the weather went south on us bad enough that the local authorities shut it down. These were a few of the many that went over. Probably 80% of the group flipped coming in and about 10%-15% going out. A lot of very expensive gear ended up at the bottom of the third cut...

West coasters can relate to this easily. Nice vid. Feel for the guys that lost a lot of gear.
