Things to do in Denver when it's too cold to fish

As many of you know, The River Damsel did a guest post on Windknots & Tangled Lines. Let's be clear...I asked her to do it. And a good one it was.  Thank you again Emily! Let's also be clear...she did not ask me to return the favor. Hmmm...

So, if you're reading this on Windknots it might be because The Damsel knows it's not a fair trade-off because I don't know all that much about Denver, cold weather fishing, warm weather fishing, fly tying, skiing or tiddlywinks.

If you're reading this at Damsel's place, it's there because she feels sorry for me because I don't know all that much about Denver, cold weather fishing, warm weather fishing, fly tying, skiing or tiddlywinks!

So, without further ado-do is my list of things to do in Denver when it's too cold to fish.

10.  Go visit the Satan horse that greets travelers at Denver International Airport...
9.    Find a Denver police officer and ask him if you can bum a smoke...
8.    Go to the state capitol building and pick up real gold flakes chipping from the dome...
7.    Go to the Denver Rescue Mission and see how many hands you can shake in a day...before you get  mugged...
6.   Take a drink out of the fountain in Civic Park...
5.   After you do number 6, quickly make funeral arrangements...
4.   Go visit Mile High Stadium Invesco Field at Mile High Sports Authority Field at Mile High...
3.  Stand on a busy street corner and yell, "I love the Oakland Raiders."
2.  After you do number 3, ask the arresting officer for a smoke...
1.  Stop at a house of ill repute and see how many politicians you recognize...

Well, now that I've alienated every Denverite...my work is done.
