    Depends on the application and what you are trying to do. If you are just building up a clear head, then you want the thicker formula, no matter what the manufacturer. I have some of the Loon, and...

    Herefishy: When I have done it, I just leave the legs together in the band, put one end of the band in a clipboard, stretch a bit with the other end in a clip, and then run the marker perpendicular...

    Jim,

    I do not have a strong opinion per se, but I do prefer to have an electronic compass (course I usually carry a non-powered one too) and then it is just a matter of how much builtin memory you...

    So is this a dry or a suspending streamer, Scott? Looks like it could work either way.

    While smart phones are OK substitutes, they do have some significant drawbacks versus a designated GPS, biggest of which to me are durability and battery life. I tend to like Garmin even though...

    Thanks, Joe. At that price, I cannot see any reason to ever try it. The Veevus 30 denier is at least in the right ballpark. Have yet to find a situation where I would need a GSP thread in that...

    Dun more than spinner, because I suspect the spinner fall happens in the middle of the night, so it goes unobserved, at least in my neck of the woods. I'd want to use yellow foam for the abdomen,...
