John Langer's Bio

My first love is the outdoors. When I'm not at the Backcountry.com offices, I'm up hiking, skiing, camping fishing or climbing in the mountains. I may have been mistaken for a Sasquatch once or twice... Utah has been my basecamp for over a year now, and before that I resided in Bozeman, Montana (the last best place).

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

It's all I ever hear about. In blogs, in fly shops, every fisherman I know has mentioned the sparkle minnow to me at least once. (This is also one of our fishing buyer's favorite streamers.) This is a quality item, through and through. Tie one on and reel them in.

Fishing along the brushy river banks and snagging logs, I lose more flies than I'd like to admit, so I tend to avoid spending too much on flies, but this little 6 pack is a bargain (with 2 of each size) especially considering the high-end quality and craftsmanship that goes into each fly.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 195 lbs
Size Purchased: 36

High quality shorts that were exactly what I'd expect from Patagonia. I had to end up returning them due to the fit, but overall these were top notch.

A note on sizing - I have a 35" waist and usually wear size 34-36, but the 36" waist in this short was easily 3 inches too small.
