Brandon's Passions

Fly Fishing
Snowboarding

Brandon's Bio

I spend all my free time in the mountains and rivers of Utah. My two favorite pastimes are fly fishing and snowboarding. I also hike, camp, bike, trail run, and various other outdoor activities.
Growing up snowboarding in Maine I spent most of my time in the park. Still love park riding, but nothing beats the pow. In between storms I like to find some fresh snow on my splitboard.
As far as fly fishing, I love it all. Trout, bass, carp, rivers, streams, still water. From throwing size 24 midge dries to chucking size 1 articulated streamers.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this for fishing in Utah and it's perfect for those hot sunny days. When you start sweating, or if you just wet it with river water, the cooling beads start working. It doesn't get frigid, but definitely cooler than a normal neck gaiter would be. Pair this with a Columbia fishing shirt with the same technology and your set to fish all summer in the west!

Sounds like this will be ideal for that! The Coldgear Infrared technology will reflect your body heat to keep you warm. The head, face, and neck coverage will do a great job protecting you from the elements. I wear balaclavas like this all the time under my snowboard helmet, so it will fit nicely under a hardhat. This style balaclava is nice because the face part is adjustable so you can wear it just over your chin if you want or up over your nose.

It?s not really recommended for salt water use. For one, salt water usually means you are fighting larger species. A machined aluminum reel will be much more reliable in the salt and while fighting large fish. Having an enclosed/sealed drag is also nice for salt water so your drag components don't get dirty or corroded by the salt. Might want to look into some of Hardy?s reels: http://www.backcountry.com/hardy-fly-reels
