Get ready for the most advanced drag system on the market in a small sleek and smooth package. Completely sealed and maintenance free, this drag system is going to probably last longer than you. Large arbor to pick up line fast on a big fish that’s running on ya. This reel was built to be last last reel you will ever need and it definitely will be if you pick it up. Worth ever penny

Got to take this out with the new mirage reel and I’m gonna need to save a couple pay checks because this rod with the mirage is freakin incredible. Precision is there for casting dry flies further, the power is there for flinging meaty streamers and it works great on the drift as well. R.L. Winston best watch out! The Helios might start stealing their customers....

I can’t get enough of these boots. I’ve had the Patagonia ultralights for a couple seasons now and they okay, but clunky. These bad boys are sleek, comfortable, the keep your foot stable on uneven river bottoms, and the rubber sticks super well. Tried them out on the Provo river and the Weber and performed incredibly well. They do stretch a bit after getting in the water though. I’m 11 1/2 in most street shoes, I tried 11 and they were pretty tight until hopping in the river. But I tried a pair of size 12’s after and they were a perfect fit. Get rid of your old wading boots, or if you bought new ones, send them back. YOU WANT THESE!! Last wading boot you will ever buy!!!

This thing might be built for kids, beginners and what have you... But if you can fit in it, man is it a fun time. Surfs well, paddles well, Super fun boat. I'd probably buy this before any other inflatable kayak. But that's just for having fun. If it was for a trip bigger than a daily... Probably will need someone to carry your gear. ha!

I needed a new bag to basically collect all of my fishing gear when I'm not on the river and to and from the river so I picked this up. I have a pickup truck and I love the fact that I can throw the bag in the back and my wet waders are able to be separate from the rest of my gear so it doesn't get the rest of my gear wet! Definitely better than my first option which was to clip my waders up in the back and used them as a wind sail. Not sure what Patagonia's Iron Clad stance is on blowing out your booties due to excessive drying with 65-80 mph winds but I'm glad I didn't have to go that route.

If you aren't familiar with Juan over at MFC, you should get familiar. He makes some of the best flies out there in my personal opinion and this particular Hollywood hopper, it's a killer! Worth every dime! Love using this fly on the B and C sections of the Green River below the Flaming Gorge Dam. The big browns on the banks go crazy for it!

I bought two sets of these because the quad pair was sold out at the time but my doodle loves them! At first, he didn't but he got used to them. Originally bought them because he has fur coming out around the pads of his paws and snow clumps up after 20 minutes of tromping in the snow... and then the rest of our trip he's biting at his paws to get the bunched up snow out. These solve that problem perfectly and the bright green is easier to spot in the wooded areas.

Got to demo these on a Skeleton key the other day and I loved them! Extremely comfortable, responsive, and everything you need in a binding if you ride a ton. EST was super nice to have a more fluid feel on the system as well. Definitely would recommend these to everyone for a good mid stiff binding that is going to treat you right.

This storage container is awesome for camp equipment, dry food, fly fishing supplies, you name it. I usually keep this version or the larger version in my truck at all times to help keep it organized. It helps a whole lot more than I believed it would when originally buying it and I'm pretty stoked on that! ( I'm horrible with organizing my gear from previous trips and it usually ends up floating around in my truck... This container helps contain the mess for me.)

Normally I'm not a huge fan of vests but I really like this one. Looks good with most things and it's an excellent layering piece for when I go snowboarding. A merino baselayer with my monkeyman vest and a shell and I'm good for most conditions. I do run hot though so that may change things for someone else.

This thing fits well, gives me free movement, wicks moisture well, and it keeps me warm. Norrona hit the nail on the head with this one! The merino/nylon blend is perfect. Couldn't be happier with this baselayer for a daily driver.

Normally I go with cheaper helmets with less venting but I gave this one a shot and i love it! With my older helmets I would always fog up my goggles because my head couldn't release the heat I was building up. With this helmet, its no longer a problem. Also if you are trying to decide between MIPS and the regular version... It's simple. The regular version will protect you from crackin' the noggin open, the MIPS version will do that as well as protect you from a concussion by dispersing the impact.

Awesome insulating piece that breathes well and takes a beating. Definitely a tougher version of the Nano-Air and I freakin love it. I will be wearing this as much as I can until the thing falls apart and then I'm getting it repaired and I will continue to wear it. I'm normally an XL in most brands but with Patagonia I go with L and it fits like a glove every time.

Love this jacket. Fit is on point, plenty of pockets that are easy to get to, venting zips are easy to open and close although I'm not sure this jacket even needs vents. The Event material is sooooo breathable! Like, astonishingly breathable. On top of that the outer material is super burly. Yes, it will crinkle, but it will also handle a couple low hanging pine branches that are in between you and that pow stash with no problem. Strafe went big with this one.
