Simplifying fly-fishing gear.

At O/B, we never shy away from decrying the overly outfitted fly fisherman. That's not to say that gear isn't important, and that you don't need a lot of it to trick a fish into taking a bite. But do you really need all of it, especially when you're starting out? The answer is simple: no. There are a few things you can't live without, however, and we're here to ID what those things are.

A look at recreation's gateway drug.

The Sunday before July 4, we stocked the cooler, packed up the gear box, loaded up the car, and headed out of town. We had a plan, and we thought it was a good one—camp our way to an Independence Day celebration with the family. Camping over the holidays seems like a good idea on paper, but the reality is often nightmarish. Crowded campgrounds, noisy children, road-clogging RVs, and overrun trails. Because it's such a good idea, everyone seems to have it. We thought we'd avoid the crowds by staying off the beaten path, visiting lesser-known national parks and out-of-the-way forests. While the extra work paid off in spades, quiet campgrounds weren't the only joy we experienced; somewhere along the way, right around the time we'd perfected steaks in a cast-iron pan, we reconnected to the roots of outdoor recreation: camping.
