As the days begin to shorten, snow enthusiasts in the Northern Hemisphere start jonesing for winter. It’s too early for the first flakes of the season to fly, but many are still dreaming of snow. Well, the good folks over at Signal Snowboarders certainly are, as they recently dropped the first episode of the third season of “Every Third Thursday,” which is a monthly web series that mixes snowboard innovation with fun manufacturing.
The first webisode is highly ingenious and entertaining, as the Signal crew crafts a snowboard fly rod. It’s a seemingly weird juxtaposition, but the crew actually pulls it off. They even catch air and fish with their clever invention.
Here’s what the Signal crew had to say: “This episode without a doubt will lure you in and make you smile as we tackle our first build of the season. We combine Abel fly reels and Signal snowboards for the ultimate catch and release adventure on the Mt. Hood glacier with pro snowboarder Kazu Kokubo and Yusaku Horii. So come on, take the bait and hit play!”
