Captain Winkler's Bio

Just a guy who loves to recreate.. If you don't find me in the office at Brighton Ski resort you will probably see me out on the mountain snowboarding or fly fishing down stream.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

With a family of four I have been using this bag to haul our ski gear to and from the lodge at the resort. Works great to put helmets, gloves, goggles and everything else we tot around. I feel good just throwing it around on and off the snow. We use it way more than I expected.

This is a great shirt. I have been wearing it under a hoodie and its so light weight I can't remember its one. I look forward to wearing it on hot summer days and taking advantage of the weight and quick drying capabilities.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this for my 3 year old. It turned out perfect for what we needed it for. We float rivers in a drift boat and I wanted to make sure I had a vest that was both legal and worked. The front zip is a must and there are plenty of ways to adjust to fit even my little 35lbs girl..

I pretty much wet wade as much as I possibly can. These socks worked great for wearing under some light weight pants.. They are very durable and with a built in gravel guard I never got any pebbles in the boots. I dig them.. They are a snug fit and I have larger caves so I sized up and have been pleased..

I scored a pair of these in a raffle and have been thoroughly impressed. They are nothing like the old school Hodgman waders we are used to. They are super heavy duty. I feel like I will get many fishy years out of these. So far Im impressed with the quality and happy with the fit. I plan to buy the zip in insulated pants for this winter..

Nothing to fancy about these pants but when looking for something comfortable to wear while working around the yard or garage these pants are perfect. Only thing I didn't like was the fit was a little long in the leg and with the straight leg design it fit a little more baggier then I would prefer.

Sounds kind of over board when you already think your hooks are sharp.. NO they can be sharper.. You should aways have one of these on hand and sharpen your hook after you tie it on. Same way you would put floatant on your fly before casting get in the habit of a quick sharpen and your will hook up with more fish.. Now go get em...

One thing you should keep in mind when looking for wading socks is the thickness of the neoprene. These are 3.5mm thick. Thats why all the other reviews talk about how toasty they are... No big deal. BUT! Most full waders come with a 3.5 thick sock sewed into them. If you buy a cheeper pair they may only be around a 2.5mm thick or less and then your boats that you bought with your waders may feel a little loose..

They are very true to fit. I have a large and wear a 10.5 shoe. They are snug but comfortable to hike around in all day..

Happy fishing!

Picked up this bobbin on a whim, After tying a few flies with it I plan to keep it as my first choice. Not sure if I will retire my old one but this one works great and gets the job done.

It is a bit longer then my old bobbin so it took a sec to get used to. I tie with a Renzetti vice so I have to make sure I don't leave a lot of thread or the bobbin hits the base. But not to much of an issue..

This is a great looking shirt. The feel of the fabric is amazing.

It was a little baggier then I had expected. The over all length and arm length are good. Just a littler loose in the belly.. Maybe a large would do me better.

Love the quick snaps and the breath ability it has. Im sure I will put many days on the water in it.
