Gear Review: Fishpond Prairie Grass Kit Bag

June 15, 2011
Author: Trouts Staff

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 calculated that I needed somewhere north of 2,000 cubic inches anyway.

Gear Review: Sage Xi3 990-4 Fly Rod

June 14, 2011
Author: Will Rice

I must start off by admitting that when it comes to fly rods, I have always preferred something with a more moderate action.  So when I packed up a 9wt. Xi3 for my trip to Bolivia, I was a bit hesitant that the rod would be a bit too fast for my liking.

Author: Trouts Staff

The Velocity is the true workhorse on the Lamson line. The Velocity is Lamson's lowest priced reel that still retains all of the key features that make Lamson one of the best reel lines on the market.

Gear Review: Loon Outdoors UV Knot Sense

May 21, 2011
Author: Trouts Staff

Loon Outdoors UV Knot Sense is a must have product when you head out to the river.  Besides using it on just about every large knot I tie, here is a list of things I've used it for:

·       I've fixed pin hole leaks in my waders.

·       Re-attached a felt sole to the bottom of my buddies Patagonia wading boot.

·       I've snipped off the heads of foam hoppers and attached them to midge hooks to "match the hatch" of pellets being flushed out of the fish hatchery on the Davidson River, North Carolina...all streamside.

·       I've closed up cuts on my hands.

·       Closed up cuts on my dog's paw.

·       Fixed pin hole leaks on a belly boat.
