If I hear the word “game-changer” applied to one more piece of new gear, I’m gonna lose my shit. So no, the new Redington Vapen hasn’t changed the game of fly fishing—but it is an innovative rod, one that demonstrates a noticeable difference from its predecessors. Read more >>
Big Sky Rod Box
Dehmer, Kurt
Over the years, many attempts have been made to keep rods fishin’-ready, while still safe from common catastrophes. PVC, rubber-snubbers, magnets, and all other manner of safe-keeping have been contrived to protect these pricey pieces of equipment. Read more >>

After 11 years in a 13.5-foot, standard-floor raft, I had a good idea of what I wanted in a new boat. It had to be a self-bailer, have removable thwarts, and since my family was bigger, it needed to be longer and wider. Read more >>

The Yeti Tundra 65 now has a permanent spot on my raft. Built by outdoorsmen, it’s constructed to fit perfectly in the frame, and the 65-quart size is great for a one or two-day float. Read more >>

I’ve always been wary of buying a complete fly rod in a box—the kind where the only thing not already set up is the fly. Thankfully, the aptly named Pursuit Rod and Reel by Redingtin has changed my mind. Read more >>

The Fishpond Nimbus Guide Pack is the proud king of fishing fanny-packs everywhere. Read more >>

Made with Konnetic technology (whatever that is), the Sage One rod with 4250 large arbor reel and RIO Gold fly line is a sleek and even stylish rod. I used the 590-4, which is a four-piece, nine-foot, 5-weight rod. Read more >>

I am one of the clumsiest waders I know. I’ve always blamed my lack of grace on poor balance and overexcitement, but after trying the Simms G3 Guide Boots I now blame past stumbles on my old wading boots. Read more >>
McCarthy, Chris
For the first time in as long as I can remember, putting on my wading boots was not a painful ordeal that ended in a race to the water so my boots could stretch out. That’s because the Korkers Chrome wading boots are as easy to get on and off as regular shoes. Read more >>
