Simply good product at a good price

Have you ever wanted to take a trip doing something new?  If it’s your first time doing something you are often inclined to buy cheap gear as you have no certainty on how many times you will use it.  In the fishing world this can end in sheer disaster.  You may end up being a walking version of an epic toyota recall, a ticking time bomb.  The drag blows up on your reel, rod snaps, wader seams break leaving you in...
