Christmas Gear Review
1. Magnetic Rod Stand- So I have always scene these at fly shops and always thought they looked like a great idea, but for some reason I never was able to pull the trigger. I wish I would have now that I have used them, it probably would have saved me a couple broken rods. I used mine on the Green River a few weeks ago and it worked great. It held the rods as we got them ready and with the padded protection didn’t scratch up the Denali. In all a great buy for $10 bucks.
2. Quick Seine- Easily attaches to your landing net handle and stays stored in its own pouch until you need it. Simply stretch it over your net to scoop up insects, then store it back into its pouch when you need to land a fish. I have used this a couple times on the Provo and it does just what it says. It sure beats having to pack one in your fly vest when you could put extra flies in there. Plus it is a great way to study the insects. Sells for $19.99
3. Nikon D90 -
I am by no means someone that knows a thing about photography, but the thing I do know is that I love to take pictures and I love to look at them, especially if it is related to anything in the outdoors. So for christmas Santa must have read my mind when he put a new Nikon D90 under our tree. OK, my buddy and avid fly fishermen Cort from bestbuy helped me out with that. I am still getting familiar with the camera and how it works, but it seems like a great purchase. I have a feeling that the longer I have it the more I will appreciate it. Here is my first fish picture with it. They sell for $1149 and $250 warranty plan for 4 yrs at BestBuy.
