Intro/Specs/Craftsmanship Whether it's a spare set of clothing or thousands of dollars in camera equipment, it's important to keep your gear dry. I've used my share of cheaper duffel and tackle storage bags in the past, only to regret that decision when caught in rough seas or an unexpected deluge. Opening up a bag to find everything inside is damp or even soaked can be a simple annoyance or even a major setback! Made in three sizes, the YETI Panga series of duffel bags aren'
Intro/Specs/Craftsmanship Despite Demystifly being a relatively new site, this is already my third fiberglass fly rod review. Frankly, I was expecting to maybe do just an occasional one, but here we are. Why such an early fuss over glass? Simply put, it's damn cool. More and more fly anglers are discovering this for themselves each year, and companies continue to respond with a growing menu of fiberglass rods being offered. Graphite still completely dominates the marketplace,
Intro/Specs/Craftsmanship The 5-weight is likely the most popular fly rod size on planet earth. From bluegill to small bonefish and everything in between, it's incredibly versatile throughout the spectrum of smaller species. While most single-handed 5-weights are packaged with about the same general style, the new EDGE Gamma Beta 5-weight strays a bit from the norm by offering a design that lends itself well to slightly more demanding applications. Designed by the legendary G
Intro/Specs/Craftsmanship Face masks have been a very important part of my overall fishing arsenal for about 10 years now. I can still remember the very first time I wore a sun-protective mask. I was on a guided trip for tarpon in the Everglades and decided to try one for both the sun and bug protection. For the first couple of hours, I still remember feeling slightly uneasy wearing this new "thing" on my face. It wasn't really uncomfortable, but it was just a feeling I wasn'
Intro/Specs/Craftsmanship Rods. Reels. Hats. Pliers. The list goes on and on. There's a lot of gear out there! I've been able to fish, use, and test a lot of different items over the years, but nothing piques my interest as much as getting acquainted with a product from a lesser-known manufacturer. One of the major reasons I enjoy looking at items from these smaller companies is because there's a bit of mystery involved since they're simply not available everywhere or seen th
Intro/Specs/Craftsmanship I've always been a sucker for 7-weight fly reels. I've had some type of 7-weight rod in my arsenal for nearly my entire fly fishing life, so I obviously have a constant need for a matching fly reel. That rod/reel size just does it for me and is a real hoot to use on an array of species from salt to fresh. I'm always on the prowl for new stuff, and when something new in a 7-weight size hits the market I immediately take notice. Made to accommodate a 6
