So I have been getting a little envious of all the patter going down on some of the blogs and websites that I read. Tom Chandler over at Trout Underground has good patter and affectionately calls his readers “Undergrounders”. I like that; its a good ways of making people feel welcome and part of a community. Over at the Sexyloops website they went for “Sexyloopers” or just plain old “Loopers”. It got me thinking about how I could embrace my own readers with a catchy moniker that I could pull out the hat rather than some bloke that fishes the Kelvin mailed me. Of course it should also embrace anyone that does not actually fish the Kelvin (most of my visitors are from the States oddly enough) so anyone that reads this blog and has their own little personal stream that they call their home water can become part of my little alliance.
So I thought about it and I think I may have come up with something that just might fit. Of course, it had to do with the Kelvin and consequently embrace the true surrealism of fishing somewhere that has fridge freezers littering the river bank. That I suppose, plus the fact the vast majority of fishers on The Kelvin are absolutely hard as nails and must be given a suitable title to go along with it has got me thinking about fridge freezers, now that rang a bell in my subconscious and I had a little glimmering of an idea! I could maybe use it? But could I pull it off?
Quite frankly if I cant pull it off I can conveniently forget about it and never mention it again the way I do with anything that doesnt pan out the way I planned.
So from now on I am going to call you all¦
Yes, yes I know I am a genius, I should have done this years ago. It ties in rather nicely with the fridge freezer theme – gives a kind of edgy feel, even a bit hard maybe!
Ha- have a read on this from Wiki:
Kelvinator is an appliance company owned by Electrolux of Sweden since 1986. It takes its name from William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin, who developed the concept of absolute zero and for whom the Kelvin temperature scale is named. The name was thought appropriate for a company that manufactured ice-boxes and domestic refrigerators.
I think I might design a fly around it, well when I say design a fly what I mean is take someone elses idea, add a bit of deer hair or splash on a bit of CDC and call it a Kelvinator fly.
Classy or what ?
