Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When I first bought my boat, I didn't know what the hell I was doing, much less how to row. My first 4 trips out were to the Green, below Flaming Gorge. It's not super difficult water to row, but for a newbie it's terrifying. In efforts of mitigating risk, I invested in there oar rights to at least give me a fighting chance. Lining up a rapid, or obstacle is one thing in calm water, but a completely different beast if you're in the middle of a s*** storm, like Mother In Law Rapid. Controlling oars in fast water, with all the different hydraulics, is tough. These oar rights gave me confidence to carry on. I don't use them anymore, but when I needed them they were there for me.

Fit: Runs large

This shirt is rad. I wear it regularly because it's comfortable, stylish, and durable. Owned it for a few months now and still looks brand new. Fit runs a bit large, so something to be aware of if you order one. It's a great summer shirt...I fished in it all summer long and loved it.

I swear these are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. I always have a pair in my rotation, always. I always make fun of my dad for wearing the same style of reeboks, but it seems that I've followed in his footsteps, just with a different shoe. Been wearing these for almost 15 years (not the same pair obviously).

I've got this line on a few reels. I bought 4wt, 5wt, and 6wt, and love them all. Glides through guides extremely well, it's quite, and presents one hell of a fly. Used this line nymphing, throwing dries, streamers, everything really and it hasn't ever let me down. I highly recommend this line for beginners all the way to experts, it's a versatile line perfect for many applications.

This jacket is money. Super comfortable, functional, and looks good (I think). Patagonia always comes with it, one of the best brands out there making the best products. I've worn this on the river, hiking, and use it daily when it's cool outside. Can't ask for anything more. I love it.

Love these. They're small, but extremely durable. Lots of times forceps lose their...tension. These don't. I've been using them, very regularly, for months and they literally function the same as the first day I got them. Love em.

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.

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.
