Q: What time it?
A: It is time to go fly fishing.
At Trouts Fly Fishing we’re constantly trying to introduce our customers and clients to new and innovative equipment. Most of the time, this means fly fishing gear. Once in while, we come across complimentary hardware that helps to support the lifestyle of fly fishing. In this case, we’d like to introduce our customers to Sunnto Watches. If your fly fishing adventures take you way off the beaten path or even off the grid, you should take a look at these lightweight multi-purpose watch sized computers.
Founded in 1936 by Tuomas Vohlonen a Finnish orienteer and inventor of the liquid-filled field compass, Suunto has been on the forefront of design and innovation for sports watches and adventure seekers all over the globe. From the highest mountains to the deepest oceans, to the most remote wilderness areas, Suunto physically and mentally equips outdoor adventurers to conquer new territory with features that include: altimeter, barometer, compass, depth gauge, watch, stopwatch and countdown timer. The altimeter can track your altitude as you ascend in elevation and descend into valleys – the watch also records your trip so you can analyze it later. The barometer can monitor atmospheric pressure and alert you when bad weather is approaching when the barometric pressure takes a radical drop over a three-hour period. The digital compass can help to keep you going in the right direction. Other interesting features include a backlit display that can assist with use at night, stopwatch, countdown timer and a four-language menu.
Stop into Trouts Fly Fishing today to check out the line of Suunto sport watches, wrist top computers and timepieces that we’re proud to carry here in the shop. Or, call us with questions: 303.733.1434.
