Nick Schlegelwrote a review of Modern Surfboards Highline PU Surfboard on May 14, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I put my 16 month old in this outfit and can take him for walks when it is 25 degrees out. We got snowed on fairly hard one day on a walk and he didn't show any signs of being cold by the time we got home.
Looking forward to using this camping.
If you like very stiff boots, these are solid. I do a lot of bootpacking at my local resort, and also put 10 days in the backcountry on this boot without issues. Easy to kick steps and skin.
I've had none of the durability issues mentioned by the other review, but I am only ~25 days in.
Umpqua has lots of fly packs, but this is sold as a single.
Solid fly with lots of volume and articulation. I was originally introduced to this fly for stripers, but likely works on additional species.
I have this caddy and the double caddy. While my dry shake tends to stay put, I've lost a few bottles of gink as they dropped out of this holder when I didn't notice. I like the other holder below better.
I've had a few ginks fall out of the loon caddy when I didn't notice, leading to afternoons without any gel flotant. A bit frustrating. So far this gadget has been more secure.
You don't want to waste time on the water rigging up, so put together a few options in advance. These are great and fit with any standard tippet spool. I tend to rig up a few dry-dropper setups and quickly transition on the river.
I'm a big Redington fan. 90% of the performance of the big brands at 1/2 the price. I have a 10 and 12 in this rod and use them primarily to chase pike and musky. Good rod to handle large flies and sinking line.
This is wonderful inexpensive reel. This is great option to get into larger gear without breaking the bank, whether you want a freshwater pike or musky reel, or saltwater reel. I have this in 10 and 12 and haven't had any issue yet. Buy a few spools with the money you save.
I have the behemoth in 10 and 12, and haven't had any issues. At this price it's easy to buy a few spools for different fish and different tactics. I have the 12 running a musky line, and a spool for saltwater (rooster, jack crevalle), and the 10 for saltwater (stripers, snook, tarpon)
Great backing, really wish I got to test it out on a river monster.
Does the olive color float? Looks like it based on materials, would be unusual for crawfish flies though
What is the size? Size chart shows s/m/l, the drop down options are only one size.
Are these single item or 6 pack?
This is Nick's wife, Lynsey:
I originally bought these for my son when he was crawling and needed a warmer pair of shoes that were easy to put on. I have since purchased them in the larger size. I love them. You don't fool with laces, they are easy and good for beginner walkers. I don't think they would hold up long to walking outdoors, but for crawling, pulling up, and using a walker and those beginning stages of walking they are great shoes. I like them because they aren't a clunky or heavy shoe for a little one adjusting to shoes and walking.

Love these slippers. Run true to size and are super warm. No complaints!
Would this work for a net?
I fish a lot in the fall with my dog, and the only other people I run into are deer hunters wearing blaze orange. I figured this would help prevent my dog from being mistaken for a deer in the willows and brush around the river.
This is a small lock you can keep in your pocket and use to lock your board at lunch. It should slow down someone snagging your board off the ski rack while you are inside for 30 min. I wouldn't expect it to deter anyone who is seriously motivated or someone who has even hand tools.
