Aevig Corvid, fishermen’s time

That’s new enough so we talk about it. no it’s not another watch, this watch just might be the perfect watch for fly fishermen, not only it looks pretty cool but it’s tough enough you can wear it anywher, it’s of course waterproof, the crystal is a real crystal, the mechanic is a Swiss Analog quartz movement and… the winder is on the other side of the watch so the line never get stuck under it! And don’t tell me it never happened to you… And it’s cheap. A must, Christmas being only a couple of month away.. You can find it on Escapads, the website for people who like outdoors more than their life at the office. The watch comes in several colours and with a luminescent back or needles who are really luminescent, you’ll know what time it is even in the dark hours by the river! You can choose the Aevig Corvid in Brushed steel or the Aevig Corvid Stealth black metal

Inflatable jacket

Every architect will tell you so, insulation with an air gap is the best you’ll ever find. So what about using it in our outdoor gear? An infaltable jacket that you can blow with air, depending on how warm you want to be, and on top of that, you can use it as a life vest. You’ll find this wonder at Field & Fish.  

Café Bras / Soulages Museum knife

When you are in Aveyron, it’s such a great place there are many things that you have to visit, and there are many things Aveyronnais people, or as we call ourselves the rouergats, are proud of and waht we love we want to share with others, starting with the amazing landscapes of our country (we can call Aveyron a country), and with it comes the food: tripous, farçous, aligot, beef from Aubrac, lmabes of Le causse, truites of river Viaur (catch and release, please, go to the fishmonger) and the cheese, Laguiole, Roquefort, Perail, and I’m not counting them all, and let’s not forget our desserts, “gateau à la broche”, fouace, stawberries from Saint Geniez, Cherries from le Tarn…it goes on and on. You got it, we are proud of our land, but it’s tough, freezing cold in winter, darn hot in summer. There is one thing that summs all of that, it could be Pierre Soulages Art, that’s why we have this fantastic museum dedicated only to his art, in Rodez, and for the best, bring the best! I’m talking now about food, the Café Bras, from teh famous chef Michel’s Bras (only open at lunch time) and for a place like this one, they had to make an exquisit knife, a mix between the famous Laguiole knife and a paint brush, this knife is a beauty, the Café Bras knife from Les Forges de Laguiole is a must!
