    Hareline Dubbin Micro UV Polar Chenille Eugene_pen
    Hareline Dubbin Micro UV Polar Chenille
    “Mirco wolly” - The chenille is a rope on which long enough for a given fiber size is fixed. This material is excellently suited for knitting a micro Wolly bugger, large nymphs and streamers. Sometimes I even trim them in the form that I need

    “Very nice box” - Great boxes! I've been fishing with them for a while now and absolutely love them. Flies stay where they're supposed to and the lid stays closed.

    Tacky Fishing The Original Fly Box
    “Very good for nymphs and wet flies” - Love this fly box. Best one out there. It's compact, and holds 168 (12x14) flies of all shapes and sizes with no problems. I have my dries in a separate box (not Tacky). I plan on getting one for my dries as well. The only thing I haven't tested is to see if this thing floats. Either way, you will be extremely happy with this box.

    Tacky Fishing The Dry Fly Box Vycheslav1956
    Tacky Fishing The Dry Fly Box
    “Best boxes” - These are probably the best boxes on the market. This one is great for dry flys and is a nice addition to the tacky line up. I must own a dozen of their boxes and they work well. The clear surface does tend to scratch if loaded in a boat bag against other boxes but it has not effected the ability to see in them. They hold flys very securely.

    “The best Bag” - An excellent bag! You can buy unloading or a bag and hang things on it, and you can buy this bag and forget about everything! Plenty of pockets, holder for the underbrush, fishing rods, bottles! Hermo bag inside and much more. Perfectly!

    Loon Hard Head Cement
    “So Thick” - Excellent quality, mostly my friends use this cement to create heads for salmon flies. I also bought myself a red ... But I did not really like it. The varnish itself has a color and this has a negative effect if applied unclearly. In addition, the colors are not as bright as we would like. My favorite technique is to shape the head with a thread, the colors of which you want to get and cover with several layers of transparent

    Simms Freestone Stockingfoot Wader
    “Simms Freestone Stockingfoot Wader SMOKE MEDIUM” - This pair of waders would not last fo ever, but at a reasonable price you would be able to enjoy a simms product for a couple of seasons. I would recomended for cool weather and for those anglers who do not wade long distances.

    GoPro Roll Bar Mount
    “For my snowmobile” - The mount is not bad, I use it on a snowmobile, but to change the tilt of the camera I have to stop and spend time on unscrewing and twisting the bolt. But, in my opinion, it is more reliable, it will last longer on bolts.

    GoPro Jr Chesty Chest Mount Harness
    “Universally” - Despite the fact that I took mainly because of the fastening on my head, I liked the clip more. It is fixed without effort, as it is removed, compact. Some extremely extreme things such as jumping from a parachute or a tarpaulin can not be done with it (with a fastening on your head, by the way, too), and for walks, hikes, and unhurried riding on the bike itself. Though on a cap, even on a backpack, though on a jacket, though where.

    “Great for table” - I purchased it for a monopod on the advice of a friend, but in the process he found a lot of ways to use it. Attached to the breastplate, led a walk passed with a cheer, more active course did not ride, afraid. Fastened to the table using a platform and a helmet, while it can be unhooked at any time from the fasteners and continue shooting with the camera in hand, not infrequently came in handy. Very pleased with the hardware, both its functionality and quality.

    “Best” - Excellent trousers. Convenient, easy. Maintain comfortable temperature. Hold a small rain. The heavy rain didn't try yet, I hope won't disappoint. Hex camo loden color very much to be pleasant. I recommend!

    Rio Gripshooter Fly Line
    “Shoots a mile” - I originally wanted the newer connect core stuff. However, I find this shoots far. The handling section is perfect. It gives you both a better grip and a perfect indicator of how much line is out. (I.e. if you want to rock a 4' overhang on the cast, you know it looking at the rod tip or at the stripping hand.) You really can hold onto the line no problem in the cold of winter, gloves or bare ...

    “Great store” - Great way to store all of your heads, leaders and tippets in one place. Plenty of room and easily moved from one boat to another or throw in your truck for a day of bank fishing.

    Rio Color Change GSP Backing - 50lb
    “Extra running line” - Takes up less space on your reel which allows for more backing. However, don't touch this stuff when a fish is running. You've been warned!

    Hatch Outdoors Premium PE Backing
    “Worth the money” - This backing is really strong. And very small for its rating. It is expensive at about 3 times more than dacron, but is worth the money. It is difficult to cut.

    “Love the Design” - I really enjoy the design of this reel. It might be my favorite with the possible exception of the Sage Click 2016 which I think looks amazing. The drag seems smooth and solid and the sound going out is not too loud, not too soft. The spool rocks slightly on the frame and can catch your tippet on occasion. And overall, the reel is on the heavier side for this day and age. I also take issue with so...
