fishpond Westwater Sling Pack Review

May 15, 2014
Author: Kevin Cooke

A few months back, I recall turning to a coworker after picking up the fishpond Westwater Sling pack and saying, “This is the sling pack that I want!” As many of you know, I recently started fishing more than I ever have before and with all of the opportunities around the Denver area can you blame me? As my fishing toolbox began to grow, I needed to figure out a way to simplify and organize all of my tricks of the trade for a full day out on the water. Scouting taught me to “Be Prepared” and the fishpond Westwater Sling Pack gives you ample room to do just that while out on the water.

Saltwater Gear Review: RIO Bonefish Fly Line

April 11, 2014
Author: Will Rice

What We Say

I’m a big believer that having the right saltwater fly line matters. I’ve had lines that were too subtle and light which made casting in the wind difficult.  I’ve also had lines that were great to cast in the wind but when they hit the water it was like a bomb exploding – and bonefish don’t like bombs exploding close by.

Saltwater Gear Review: Sage 4280 Fly Reel

April 10, 2014
Author: Will Rice

The last time I brought a brand new reel down to a saltwater environment without having fished it before, things did not end well.  After the first fish I hooked took it on a blistering 150 yard run the reel failed and I struggled trying to hand line the fish in.  I was not a happy camper.

Saltwater Gear Review: Sage ONE 890-4

April 9, 2014
Author: Will Rice

What We Say

My favorite trout rod here in Colorado is the Sage ONE 490-4.  It is light – it is accurate – and I can use it in a variety conditions.  I decided to see if the Sage ONE 890-4 would have the same attributes and chose it as my go-to saltwater fly rod on a recent trip to the Bahamas.  I was happy with my decision.
