We believe in the power of nature to replenish our spirit and restore balance to our lives. That’s why, each day from today through Christmas Day, we will post a “Moment of Chill”—a short video that will transport you to a place where you don’t have to do anything but watch, enjoy, and breathe.
Today’s #momentofchill is from our own Joel Ruby and features our friend, Maria–who is assistant manager of the Orvis Outlet in Manchester, Vermont–casting for brook trout on a stream near Orvis HQ, amid spectacular foliage.
Autumn is a great time to fish mountain streams in the Appalachians, as cooler temperatures make the fish more active, and many of the larger fish that live lower in the watershed begin to move upstream to spawn. This stream, in the Green Mountains of southwestern Vermont, flows into a river that holds wild brown trout, which will also move into the smaller streams late in the season.
And if you’re having a rough day and feel the need for some new chill NOW, visit the Moment of Chill homepage.
