I still remember the first time that I went to the New England Saltwater Fishing Show. As I trolled through the isles, "WOW", "OMG", and "Wicked Awesome!" were my immediate responses to the booths I saw. The breadth and depth of the seminars were well worth the price of admission. The same holds true today!
This past season I had the opportunity to go fresh water kayak fishing for large mouth bass. OMG! What fun!! I reviewed my fishing journal and discovered that one of my most productive baits was the spinner bait. This easily justified me stocking up on this fish seducing bait. The unexpected challenge that I encountered was how to organize them.
A fishing belt, unlike a traditional belt, is a multi-functional piece of equipment. By adding the right accessories, you can maximize your belt and be more productive on and in the water. Accessorizing your fishing belt starts with two indispensable pieces of equipment: clips and stainless steel D-rings.
Historically, catching a fish from strike to landing on camera has been a challenge. Fish are difficult to predict and the cameras varied greatly in size, weight, and water resistance. But now with modern technology, you can keep your two hands on the rod, hook, and land your fish while the whole experience is captured effortlessly via GoPo!
Before I go fishing (saltwater, freshwater, or hardwater), I always pre-tie my leaders and rigs. I use to organize them in small Ziplock bags. This simple leader and rig management solution works. But, it's not Eco-friendly and managing a lose collection of Ziplock bags whilst fishing is unnecessarily challenging. I am now use the AquaSkinz leader wallet.
