Yes, I bought this as a gift. But as soon I the gift recipient wore it out, I went and bought another. Looks great, apparently is extremely comfortable, and can be worn in a multitude of settings. She absolutely loves it as well.

Fit: Runs large

I've worn this shirt on rivers all over the west. I love that it keeps me warm on crisp cool mornings, and that I can leave it on as the day warms up as it breathes pretty well. Personally, it fit me a bit large, but that hasn't stopped me from wearing it on a very regular basis, especially when fishing.

The POC Receptor Flow helmet is a great alternative to your typical race style bike helmet. I use it when riding around town or to the nearest grocery store. It?s comfortable, sits low on my head, and looks great. If you?re between sizes, pick the bigger size. I don?t think I have a huge head, but the XL/XXL is barely big enough.

I've stored so many dries in this thing, I lost count. Many times have I dropped this while out fishing, or in the parking lot, and it's still going strong. Very reliable, and extremely functional. Fly boxes are rather simple, but there's a big difference between a good and bad box. This one is most definitely good.

I have this line on two reels, 4wt and 5wt. It's smooth, smoothly carries itself through guides, and the willow color is stealth. I primarily use this when throwing dries, both big and small, and it never lets me down. To be safe, it's smart to clean it every once in a while, or often if you fish on a regular basis. The line itself is a bit porous, which is great for casting but also means you'll inadvertently pick up mud/dirt/etc regardless of where you're fishing.

My favorite binding of all time. Bombproof, reliable, you can't ask for much more. Standing at the top of a technical line, the last thing you want to think of is "I hope I don't pop out of my bindings...". That thought won't cross your mind when you're in these. I know a lot of big mountain guys/gals that swear by these, so obviously I followed suit.

This jacket literally can do it all. I've worn this in rain, snow, sleet, sun, and everything in between. Great if you sweat a lot. Keeps the wind off you. I use it for skiing, fishing, hiking...everything. Arc'teryx product is sometimes expensive, but worth every penny. It's kind of like buying new tires for your car...I hate buying tires because it's so damn expensive, but when a storm hits and there's 6 inches of snow on the ground, I'm always psyched I bought them. Same with this jacket, expensive, but when all hell breaks loose and I know I'll weather the storm in this jacket, it completely changes the perspective, and also the experience. Fit is athletic, arms aren't too short. It's perfect.

This net is badass. When I first picked it up I couldn't believe how light it was. I use this when I'm floating, which allows you to net fish without falling out of the boat. It has clear markings on the handle for you to measure, which is nice when your buddy thinks he caught the fish of the trip...you'll have the truth.

My preference is to throw dries, hands down. With that said, and as much fun as casting is, catching fish is pretty damn fun too. When fish aren't up, I'll fish below the surface in efforts to hook up. The right depth is crucial, but having a natural drift is even more important. Play around with weight to achieve the depth of where fish are holding, and hang on for the ride.

I always try to have an ant and beetle on me when I head out, regardless of river. For my ant, this is one of my favorites. I fish this in Utah and have in Idaho a few times. Different patterns of ants work better on certain rivers for sure, so do some research, but if you blindly go fishing a river you can't go wrong with this one.

After I bought these, three of my friends bought them as well. I like being different...which means that I wasn't all that "different" once my buddies saw them ha. These look great on women as well, I've let folks wear mine both male and female, and in the end all loved them. Lenses are awesome, they're super comfortable. I've got nothing but great things to say about these. They're badass.

I've had this reel for well over two years and other than some wear and tear, it's still good as new. All basic functions still work perfect, and for the money I'd find it hard to believe that there's a better reel on the market, even two years later. The reel is super quiet also, which is nice when you're dumping a bunch of line preparing to cast to a fish you've been sneaking up on for the last 20 minutes.
