Michaelsoft_'s Bio

I've been a working for Backcountry.com since July of 2011 as a Gearhead and now in Accounts Receivable.

I spend most of my time in the winter snowboarding at resorts and do some back country riding and hiking.

I spend the majority of my time trying to outsmart fish with a fly rod and spend a good deal of time backpacking in the western US.

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

The net overall was longer than I had anticipated it to be. Standing next to me it goes to around my belly button (I'm 5'9"). Like said previously, it is great when netting others' fish and great to have the extra reach when you're fishing alone and have one that doesn't want to come in. Haven't had a chance to put anything big in it yet, but I love the deep basket on this and feel confident in it's ability to hold bigger fish.

First impression was that the diameter of the parts was beefier than I had thought it was. Probably around 8-9mm. I'm impressed with the cleverness of the whole thing though. The little grey piece has a blade on it to cut your tippet which I didn't catch when looking at it on the here. Also the way that you get the tippet on and off is cool - The end of the orange part that sticks out is spring loaded so you pull the knob out and it releases the orange part to swing open to load/unload your spools.

Also, I can fit spools of Maxima with plenty of extra clearance for something bigger if I had to.

I dislike the clip that attaches to the bag. The clip is cumbersome to get around anything and where it connects at the bottom to the tippet holder is loose and doesn't realign well. I'm looking for a different clip/biner to use and I'm sure it will handle my petty annoyance.

Overall much better than a tippet "T" or anything else for that matter. Looks cool and functions well.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought these for my little sister for Xmas and she loves them! The fit snug with warmer socks on, but will stretch a little bit with the leather. Cute, and seem like they will keep her feet dry and warm while she walks to work in the snow.

I picked up a pair of these from the brand rep a while back and I always find myself grabbing these socks whenever they are clean and I'm going out. I fly fish in the winter and although these are ski socks, they are awesome for wearing with fishing boots and in the cold river. I bought a pair for my bro and his wife over any of the others that I have.
