No, but...
"Has anyone wished they had their western kit up there?" No but at the last minute and on a whim, I left my Tenkara in the car and took my fly rod and reel on the JMT and was happy wit...

That is a pretty harsh review. Given that they start at $200, I'd have expected more. I own a Fountainhead Caddis Tenkara. It is fine with me, but prefer to use my cheapo 4wt Wind River co...

Re: Rifle Stock Ammo Holder

Same cord different technique

"Nike once made road racing shoes from Tyvek, called the Mayfly" They still do unless they just stopped. They weigh 4.7 oz according to Nike. I tried a pair on and they felt great. ...

Thermarest Neo-Air
