Familiarity: I've used it several times

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.

Just as the low wing variant, this BWO imitation can't be beat. Also, just as the low wing, I have this fly in all sizes ranging from 18-24, in red, gray, black, sparkle and non-sparkle. Sometimes this is "the fly" fish are hitting, so it's good to have a full run of sizes and colors. When fishing a double nymph rig, or stand alone, a little sparkle can't hurt to provide some visual that may catch the attention of a fish (sparkle), which this fly is great at.

This little modification can be a game changer, it's happened to me many times. Definitely fun when you make these types of small changes and you finally "figure it out"...at least for that day.

This fly crushes. I've used a smaller size off a bigger dry, used this as a stand along nymph rig, and also in a double nymph rig. Every single person needs this in their box, in all colors. I'm stacked with these, cause when they're working you'll want multiples in both color and size.

This should be a staple in any anglers box in the west (never fished east coast, so maybe there too). I used this fly in Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana, and it has proven itself time and time again. Buy it in 16/18/20/22 and you'll be set once the hatch goes off.

This watch looks great and is the most comfortable watch I've ever worn. It's super light, and can dress up or down. I'm one of those dudes that has to wear a watch at all times, and figured I'd buy something that wouldn't look ridiculous for my sisters wedding. I scored here. Wish it was waterproof, taking it off every time I shower/swim is quite annoying.

A good base layer is like a good pair of tires. If you're going to make it up the hill on a day where it snowed 16in overnight, you need to have a good set of tires, with at the very least decent tread, to make it safely. Meaning, if you're going to make it you need to at least give yourself a chance at success. Also the same as shooting a basketball, you have to put the ball above the rim for it to have a chance of going in. How does that relate to a baselayer? Well, in order to properly regulate body temperatue you need to at least give yourself a chance. Synthetics are great for hot or cold, but they end of smelling...ripe. The thing I love most about merino wool is that 1) it doesn't smell bad, ever, 2) it's far more comfortable than any other base layer material, and 3) it regulates body temperature better than other base layer materials, in my opinion. This layer is great cause it's not too heavy and can be worn in multiple applications. Comfort is #1, smell is something you can deal with if a piece of clothing is comfortable and if it does it's job of regulating body temperature, but comfort is not. This piece meets my prerequisites of comfort, smell, and various applications. Needless to say, Icebreaker makes one hell of a merino base layer. Highly recommend.

This reel is, by far, my favorite of all time. I'm a huge fan of big arbors, which is exactly what this reel provides. Picking up line fast, effectively fighting bigger fish, it's perfect. The first thing I noticed when I got my hands on this thing...it's stupid light. I was absolutely blown away with how light Sage made this reel, while being powerful/durable/beautiful. It's a sexy reel, no question. Great reel for bigger rivers, the Green, Henry's, Madison, Missouri, etc... I honestly don't know how to tell the story of this reel, but think the following summarizes my thoughts...If you're looking for a reel that is light, powerful, and will be forever in your arsenal, this is it.

As always, before making this purchase I did my fair share of research. Talked to friends, read reviews, and once I had my mind set, pulled the trigger. I love this line, have it on two different reels, a 5wt and 6wt. Sharkskin essential creates less friction through rod guides, enabling the user to cast further. One misconception, just because you can cast further doesn't mean you should be casting further. Catching fish doesn't require hero casting. I know throwing lots of line is quite fun, but with more line comes a decrease in accuracy and hook sets...just something to keep in mind. The line also makes more noise through rod guides than traditional line, but this wasn't a bother to me.

This is another awesome fly to drop off a big dry. it's light, but still gets down to the depth needed (depending on your personal preference). I've caught fish on 10+ rivers with this fly, in multiple states. I consider it to be yet another staple in my every day routine...especially if things on the surface are slow.
