Griffin Montana Mongoose Fly Tying Vise Review

Review: “I’ve been tying for a month now and knew right away that I wanted to invest in a durable vise that I can use for years to come. After reading some of the online reviews, I was drawn to the Montana Mongoose. Really loving it. The grip on the hook is very sturdy. I have yet to have a hook come off the vise (unless it breaks off!). Love the material holder, bobbin cradle, different base option, and of course, the rotation option. Definitely, will recommend it!” Continue reading

Fishpond Bumpy Road Product Review

Review: “This is the lightest roller duffel of this size that I have found. My only criticism is that rolling this bag is slightly more difficult than the hard bottom roller bags that have extendable handles but these are usually around 10 lbs vs the 3.5 lbs that this bag weighs.” Continue reading

Rating: “Rough puppy. Tough leash” 5 out of 5 stars!

Review and win - Read the Ruffwear Flat out leash's review!

Review: “We have a 6month old puppy who is testing his boundaries with leash walking still, so a secure clip and strong attachment are important qualities for us to have in our product. We have recently started loose leash training and were in the market for a 6ft. I liked that this leash could be hand or waist held, had a short walking option and strong manufacturing. All of the reviews I read gave me a positive feeling and that has continued since we got the product and started using it. One feature that I wasn’t looking for but has been nice for me is the padded hand grip. I haven’t used it around the waist yet, but I can imagine that the padding with increase the comfort in that function.” Continue reading

Walton's Thumb fly fishing tool product review

Review: “I received this as a Christmas gift and I have been out on the river twice with it. I like how it is the only tool I need on my lanyard. All of the tools that I have used function as they should. I tried to cut some heavy mono – 40 pound with the nippers and they would not cut it, but it has no problem with smaller size tippet that is used in fly fishing. I am very happy with this product.” Continue reading

205-3-964-000857__1__98342.1437686475.1280.1280.jpg

Review: “Classic, old-fashioned stuff! But it works great; you quickly appreciate why it’s been a favorite for decades. I’ve tried Gink and Aquel and Fly-agra, but I always return to Mucilin Green. It comes with a line cleaning/conditioning pad inside — very useful for cleaning the dirt off your fly line. This extends the life of a line. But Mucilin Green works best as a fly floatant. Nothing beats it. (Apply, however, before the fly gets wet). Takes a little care — keep it in your cooler on a hot day, or dip it in the cold river after you use it. Rub it lightly into the fly — it stays on for a long time, doesn’t leave an oil slick (like Gink does) — and the fly pops back right up if you pull it under, which (an added and happy bonus!) sometimes triggers a trout to strike!”
