Before the flood – 0 for 5 on the Pere Marquette

April 14, 2014

                  We hit the Pere Marquette flies only section on Saturday and apparently so did every other fisherman north of the Mason Dixon Line. Most of the snow was gone, there were steelhead in the river and the forecast was good. Consequently, the people were out in full force. We were fishing with Steve Martinez from and stayed right on the flies only section at the Red Moose Lodge. Steve is as professional, personable, and amazing as a fly fishing guide can get and the Red Moose Lodge is clean, convenient, affordable and no hassle. We hit the …

The versatility of a 2X Pouch

November 02, 2012

New Stream Team member Henry Jackson sent a note about how he is using his 2X pouch this weekend. A delayed departure for a four day backpacking trip had me looking over my gear, scratching my head over what could be left behind or rearranged, and after making a few modifications I was relatively satisfied with everything but my medical kit. That’s not unusual, as a Wilderness-EMT I’m quite picky about my medical gear and am never happy with the mass produced first aid kits out there. Then I noticed my 2x Pouch peeking at me from across the room …

What’s this stuff all about?

September 24, 2011

Today, we fish for many different kinds of fish in many different places and widely varying conditions. One day we wade. The next day we float. The next day we hike deep into the backcountry. All of these situations require different gear configurations.   With the Switch Vest you no longer need to decide, between a vest, a waist pack, or a bag. All our pouches work with all those designs.   With our Switch Kit you can have all of these backbones and not have to worry about re-sorting all your gear every time you go out to fish …
