Some cool new stuff coming from the Gear Keeper folks! Make sure you keep an eye out! Anything that helps hang onto your gear is a good thing!
Cheeky is now selling preloaded fly reels! With 3 sizes available, you get the reel, backing, fly line and tippet for under 100 bucks! Such a great way to get started and take the guesswork out of reel loading!

This is pretty incredible, this is the Hatch Reels display case that was on the counter at East End Lodge when Hurricane Dorian hit. The intact reel case was one of the few objects salvaged from the wreckage. Hatch Reels is taking the case around the country on the show circuit to help raise money for the lodge and its employees. Such an amazing artifact to see in person and drop a few bucks into.

Map the Xperience is a cartography company that is printing river maps on fabrics as well as traditional laminated paper. The map products can be rebranded for fly shops, customized to specific areas and include a QR code to download a digital version to your smartphone! Very cool idea, you should never be without a map!

I took an up close look at the Riversmith Riverquiver 2- and 4-Banger rod carriers. Lots of thought has gone into these with the goal of being the best available! The new black finish is sharp! And, the anti-theft design on the box will keep rods and reels secure!
