Redhead Bone-Dry Canvasback Systems Wader Jacket for Men

Being a shorter version of the 4-in-1 Parka, this waist length jacket with an elastic bottom for wearing over your waders, has all the same features as the Canvasback 4-in-1 parka. It has a rugged Taslon oxford shell that has a Bone-Dry membrane making the jacket waterproof, windproof and breathable. The 100 gram ThermoLite insulation in the hood and the arms and 150 gram ThermoLite in the body, makes this jacket extremely warm. The removable liner, also has features of its own such as shot shell holders in the chest. An additional feature that makes this such a great buy, and a fantastic Christmas gift, is the Rip-stop in the shoulders and the articulated elbows. Additional features include: three piece hood, side seam adjusters, 2 large snap-close cargo pockets, magnetic closure chest pockets with hidden drainage, license loop and mesh ambidextrous shooting pad pocket. The hook ‘n’ loop cuffs with neoprene barriers are great for those frigid mornings, wading in the marsh, setting up your decoys. Just before shooting time, its starting to become light out, ducks are flying overhead, and you’re not sure whether its time to pull the trigger or not: the magnetic closure pockets are perfectly silent, allowing you to check the time without letting the birds know you are there. The Redhead Bone-Dry Canvasback Systems Wader Jacket makes a tremendous waterfowl hunting coat, and would be a great gift for that special someone for the holidays.

The featherweight filter comes in at a whopping 2 ounces, this filter requires no pumping or chemical treatment. This revolutionary "straw" allows you to safely drink directly from a water source ( rivers, lakes, and streams) or from a bottle of untreated water.  The LifeStraw filters down to 0.2 microns and is 99.9999% effective in removing dangerous waterborne bacteria as well as 99.9% of protozoa's such as giardia and cryptosporidium. The ease of use is a major feature of the LifeStraw, you simply put the bottom of the straw into the "unsafe" water and begin drinking through the straw. Once you are done drinking LifeStraw recommends that you "regularly blow though your LifeStraw after drinking to keep the filter clean and prevent clogging" (illustrated below). LifeStraw will filter up to 1,000 liters (264 gallons) of water and has a shelf life of 5 years, making it a great back up for emergency situations. LifeStraw is carried in stores as well online for $19.99.

Automatic Fisherman

Our NEW Automatic Fisherman only $39.99

Automatic Fish

How the Automatic Fisherman works:
When a fish bites your bait and starts to swim away, the bobber on the line will come up to the fishing rod and get tight. The steel trigger shaft will angle down, causing the fishing rod to slide off the post and set the hook in the fish. The red trigger arm will fall out of the way to give you a tangle-free area to fight your fish. The fishing rod and the drag on the reel do the work until you grab the rod and start reeling the fish up.

Sawyer Squeeze Filter

Sawyer Squeeze Filter

The Sawyer Squeeze Filter has revolutionized how we think about filtering water in the backcountry. Coming in at a 3 ounce field weight, this filter will disappear into your pack without adding bulk or weight. Anyone who has spent time in the backcountry has most likely labored in a creek pumping for multiple minutes only to have a liter of clean, drinkable water. This filter will typically fill up a liter of water in about 20 to 30 seconds by squeezing the water through the hollow fiber filter.  The filter comes with three (64oz, 32 oz, 16 oz) lightweight, packable, reusable pouches to collect and transport water.

Attach directly to any plastic water bottle

In the backcountry you have a few ways of using this filter. First, you can attach the filter directly to the bag and drink from the pop-up cap. Another option is to squeeze the pouch and fill another container like a Nalgene or Camelbak bottle. The third option allows you to screw the filter directly to most plastic water bottles, even a 2 liter bottle. This offers some versatility not only in the backcountry but when traveling abroad where you may not trust the water source.  You can also throw the squeeze filter in-line with your hydration pack.  This allows the convenience of filtering while on the move.

Put the filter in-line with adapter kit

What has set this filter apart from others is the exceptional filter technology at hand. This filter, like many others, removes bacteria and protozoa related to water bourne illnesses. The filter meets and exceeds all EPA recommendations for removal rates, actually posting the highest filtration rates available on the market.  The Hollow Fiber Membrane came from technology used in the medical field for kidney dialysis   This filter touts a 0.1 micron that uses a cluster of micro-fibrous tubes to filter water effectively. This filter does remove 99.99999% of all bacteria and 99.9999% of protozoa (Giardia and Cryptosporidium) but does not purify out viruses. The filters effectiveness and ease of use is a huge benefit, but the real catch is the longevity of the filter.

Squeeze Filter is very compact

Sawyer is so confident in the technology at hand they give this filter a 1 Million Gallon Guarantee. Verbatim it reads:

We are confident in our million gallon claim because you can continually clean the filter by backwashing it with clean water at high pressures, restoring it to its original capacity. That is why we can GUARANTEE THE FILTER FOR LIFE as long as you follow the simple care and use instructions. Backwashing is not required often unless you are filtering very turbid water. Even so, the simple process only takes a few seconds. If you are accustomed to a ceramic filter, the cleaning ratio is approximately 20:1. In other words, by the time you first need to clean your hollow fiber filter, you would have needed to clean a ceramic filter twenty times. NO REPLACEMENT FILTERS OR CARTRIDGES ARE NECESSARY. We trust you will thoroughly enjoy the ease and extra protection this proven next generation technology offers you.

This claim is really why the filter has caught the attention of so many backcountry users, gaining high praise from backpackers and publications. Sawyer was awarded the 2012 Editors' Choice Award from Backpacker Magazine, and is frequently the go to filter recommended by Bass Pro sales associates.

Sawyer Squeeze Filter in-use

I found the Sawyer Squeeze Filter to be much easier to use than other ceramic, paper, or chemical based filters and purifiers. I enjoyed not having to pump; squeezing is easy enough that my 4 year old daughter was able to take part in the filtering process. With the remarkable longevity of the filter, convenience, and versatility, this is a must for anyone who enjoys the backcountry or even general emergency preparedness. The filter also is extremely affordable compared to its competitors (MSRP 59.99). For more information check out Sawyer's FAQ and this Video from Sawyer.  Available On-line and In-Store.



Temple Fork Outfitter Rod Company Professional Series

Temple Fork Outfitters

Professional Series Fly Rod

By: Elliot Cantwell

Casting the TFO Professional Series

Temple Fork Outfitters Rod Company makes numerous affordable and well built rods that give a consumer a great rod for the money.  TFO backs their product with a 25 year warranty and with always innovative and new products.  The company offers numerous rod types for every fisherman’s needs.  Recently I field tested one of their mid-range rods.  The TFO Professional Series is the 2nd in a long line of series or rods that offers a low price without compromising rod quality.  The rod I tested was the 8 foot 4wt, which was paired with Rio Trout Line.  The Rio Trout Lt allowed us to really see the delicacy and fine presentation the rod offered. 

Fish on line

The rod is a mid-action rod but has more than enough back bone for a middle double haul.  The rod is very lift on its feet and responds well to added power in the casting stroke without translating that power into a sloppy presentation on the water.  This rod is very accurate allowing the angler to present flies close to cover and mend line without disturbance.  The double haul comes with ease but if the angler becomes to aggressive with his/her casting stroke the rod will be over powered creating tailing loops. With that said though, the rod can handle a substantial about of power without these consequences becoming apparent.  All in all, the TFO Professional Series rod offers high quality, great cast ability, and accuracy without the price tag of a much more expensive rod. Available On-line and In-Store MSRP $149.95 to $194.95

San Juan Worm

San Juan Worm

The San Juan Worm is a great pattern for trout no matter the time of year. This fly works very well during the fall, winter and spring for steelhead ( best in Ohio ). This fly works great especially after a heavy rain when the water is still stained. The fly fishermans' version of the Powerbait 3" trout worm  is very popular with centerpin fishermen. This fly is also available in flame orange.  MSRP $1.49

San Juan Worm

BH Superflash Zonker

BH Superflash Zonker

Trina Sculpin Bugger

Trina Sculpin Bugger

The Trina Sculpin Bugger is another pattern from the Montana Fly Company . The fly is heavy enough to sink deep with a realistic sculpin shape, a great brown trout and bass streamer. Tie it on with a loop knot for maximum movement.  MSRP $3.19

Goal Zero Nomad 7

Goal Zero Nomad 7

Goal Zero encourages outdoor enthusiasts  to "Live Life Untethered". The Goal Zero Nomad 7 allows you to recharge small handheld devices like a GPS, digital cameras, mp3 players, and cellphones from the sun's powerful rays. The panel produces 7 watts of power when placed in direct sunlight. The Nomad 7 has two outputs, USB and a 12 volt DC charging port. Goal Zero touts that the Nomad 7 is 30% smaller and 14 times more powerful than comparable panels. The panel utilizes mono-crystaline solar technology which has a lifespan of 10-30 years and is efficient even in low light conditions.

Charge your handheld device directly from the sun

I used the Nomad 7 on a 4-day backpacking trip in Dolly Sods Wilderness located in West Virginia. The panel was used to recharge my iPhone (which I was using for its GPS and camera features) as well as my Goal Zero Rock Out speaker. By recommendation, I would open up the panel so that it could "warm-up" prior to plugging in my device. Immediately after plugging in, I'd recieve signs of a positive charge on the phone, both on clear and partially cloudy days. Goal Zero says that the Nomad 7 will charge a cell phone in 1-2 hours, I found this to be consistent with my experince by gaining 10% of battery life for every 10-15 minutes sitting directly in the sun.

Solar charge cell phone in 1 to 2 hours

I found that proper alignment to the sun was critical to the efficiency of the panel. Setting the panel at a 45 degree angle allowed for optimal power absorption.  I found this could be achieved by utilizing a dry bag or stuffed sack (seen below). I found myself charging our devices both in the morning and evening.  The first oppurtunity I had to charge from the sun was after a few showers had moved throughout the region.  Complete cloud cover had me worried that I'd have to conserve battery life, but alas! As soon as I plugged in I starting drawing a positive charge into my device.

7 watt mono-crystalline solar technology

The panel features a rugged, protective case that is also water resistent.  During use the panel's dimensions are 17 x 9 x 0.1 inch and when in storage it is 6 x 9 x 1 inch.  When folded this panel disappears into your pack unnoticed. This is definitely worth adding to your pack with minimal loss of space.  Also,  weighing .8 lbs (12.8 ounces for those counting), the Nomad 7 panel adds little weight to your pack.

Nomad 7 Folded

Below you can see the panel compared to a average magazine.

Nomad 7 compared to Magazine

The Nomad 7 features eight attachment loops which allows you to  hang the panel from your pack. Having this feature enables you to collect solar power on the go. I found the Nite-Ize #1 S-Biner  to be a great carabiner for attaching the panel to my pack, allowing for a multiple hanging options. This feature takes away the extra time needed in camp and at breaks to fuss with charging your devices. That being said, where we were backpacking didn't have any long stretches of canopy cover. We were mainly running along the Alleghany Plateau, which granted us a lot of sky and sun, perfect for snagging the sun's energy.

Attach to the outside of a Backpack

The Nomad 7 is perfect for anyone who wants to stay somewhat connected to the outside world. As an individual who typically couldn't stand having any "techy" items in my pack,  I found it enjoyable to edit photos prior to bed or access PDF files that contained maps and local beta. Pick up the panel and begin living life untethered! The Nomad 7 is available on-line & in-store. MSRP $79.99

Unfolded dimensions 19 x 9 x 0.1

Maumee River Walleye Run

Gear Up for the Maumee River Walleye Run

Yes, the walleye run in the Maumee River is still on! Although, the bite has slowed down a bit, this is a great chance for those of you who are new to river fishing and are interested in learning to see what the river has to offer. Since the crowed of anglers has thinned out over the past week, I encourage you to get geared up and hook into some fish!

Fishing Gear

I would suggest starting out with the Pflueger Trion Combo. It's the best bang for your buck, only $59.99 for an IM-8 Graphite Rod matched up with a six stainless steel ball bearing reel. Fishing the river can be strenus on your gear but this combo has passed the test!

Don't forget to spool your reel with a monofilament backer followed by our Power Pro Braided line varying from 10-30 lb. test.This Braided Spectra's Enhanced Body Technology® delivers a compact, abrasion-resistant line with a smooth surface texture and virtually no spool memory.



The most productive rig to use in the Maumee River is the Carolina Rig. Fish a floating jig head tipped with a 2-3in grub tail leaving about a 12-34in leader, where you will then tie on a 3/8oz barrel swivell. Depending on the depth and flow of the river your weight will vary. (carry numerous sizes with you)




Goal Zero Rock Out!

Goal Zero Rock Out

Goal Zero, who specializes in solar power on-the-go, brought to market last year the Goal Zero Rock Out portable speaker (MSRP $39.99). We've all had portable speakers at camp or in the backyard that don't pack much of a punch. The Rock Out's wooden sound box  kicks out a full range of sound from bottom end bass to the high end frequencies for a clear sound that carries. The Rock Out is completely  portable weighing in at 14.4oz, and it is compact enough that it should make it on every  weekend backpacking trip.

Goal Zero Rock Out (Inside)

The Rock Out will connect to any mp3 player or phone that has an external headphone jack. The speakers have their own internal battery so it won't drain the battery of the device in use. The Rock Out also is completely rechargeable, meaning you'll never have to decide on whether to power your camp stereo or headlamp. The battery can last up to 20 hours based on the amount of volume you're pumping out. The battery can be recharged in two hours through any USB source or connected directly to the Goal Zero Nomad7 Solar Panel for anyone who will be out over longer periods of time.

Goal Zero Rock Out ( Hanging )

One of the best features when using this around camp is the ability to hang it from about anywhere. Once you have your Ipod or mp3 player in place, you can zip up the Rock Out, sit back and enjoy your favorite tunes for hours on end. Along the back, there are a series of bungee cords that allow for an array of options whether it be a backpack or mountain bike stem.

Goal Zero Rock Out ( Bungee )

Overall, the Goal Zero provides a unique way of keeping music with you everywhere you travel. The compact and rugged design makes it suitable for the toughest of wilderness weekends or just sitting around the deck on a summer evening.

Goal Zero Rock Out  Weight: 14.4oz  Size:6 x 5 x 3 in

Are you having difficulty getting that predator to come in close enough to take a good clean shot? Is your electronic caller just not as effective as it once was?
