Gear Review: Waterworks Ketchum Release Categories: 21
Gone are the days when that fish slips through your hands as your go to unhook it, only to speed off in an attempt to give you a "taste of your own medicine"...in the form of digging your dropper into your hand! We've all been there...painful.
Gear Review: Amy’s Ant Categories: 21
This is one of the most effective patterns we have fished with here in Colorado. Rainbows, browns, cutthroat and brookies all want to eat this fly.

Gear Review: Palsa Pinch On Floats Strike Indicator Categories: 21

Gear Review: Fishpond Prairie Grass Kit Bag Categories: 21
I haven’t been much for fancy luggage since an upscale suit bag I was toting disappeared from a baggage claim area in 1995. I’ve used plain brown wrapper ever since. Then last month I decided to attempt a week-long bonefishing trip with nothing more than a carry-on bag. I went rummaging through the ziploc storage, but they were all full of year-old peanut butter and jelly sandwiches I made last time I thought a zombie invasion was imminent. And I’d already...
