Piscifun announces the release of the Carbon X Do you enjoy fishing with a reel that is light, smooth and fast? Well of course you do, don’t we all! The...
I'm very impressed with the Piscifun Phantom baitcaster. I've never seen a fishing reel built with these high end features and components at anywhere near these prices.
In fall of 2017, Piscifun released its newest, most advanced fly reel yet, the Crest. Featuring advanced machining, anodized finish, carbon disk drag system, and new quick release spool capture system, this reel is perfect for the angler looking for a great cutting-edge reel at an honest price point.
If you've been fishing for any length of time, you've probably done it. Wake up nice and early, choke down that breakfast burrito extra fast, and drive like the wind to get to your favorite hole, only to find out you left your fly boxes behind or that your favorite spool of tippet had 4 inches left. It happens, even to the best of us.
Whether it’s your first or an addition to the quiver, most would agree that there is so much to consider when picking a new fly rod. Even for a seasoned veteran, it can be overwhelming. You might have questions running through your mind like: What do I get for $800? Why is this one only $50?
When you plan that first trip for a youngster, it is very important to make it a short, but exciting adventure. A child's attention span can be pretty short, so hold your trip to two or three hours, just long enough to catch a bunch of fish. Do not drag out the event for several hours and let the kid get bored.
As fall approaches I will be giving you the results of some my product field testing and performance reviews. Just know that these reviews are based on personal use and experience. I do not get paid for these reviews and do not work for the manufacturers of any of these products.
As a teenager and throughout my 20’s I sat behind the reel service bench at several tackle shops in southern California. Working as the in-house reel tech, I would turn my nose up at anything that didn’t have a Penn, Shimano or Abu Garcia or Newell badge on the side. New brands or anything out of the norm were relegated in my mind to either being a passing craze or something I would charge triple the service fee because I know I was going to be fabricating parts or that I would spend hours or weeks trying to locate parts from the manufacturer. To me, the decision on which reel to buy was an open and shut case. In my mind if it wasn’t US, Japanese or European, (like cars) it was junk. It wouldn’t be until a few months ago that I would change my mind.
Angling is simultaneously one of the world’s greatest, most frustrating, and most rewarding puzzles out there. Figuring out what a species of fish is doing at any given moment amongst the seemingly endless list of variables is key to consistently putting fish in the boat. And here’s some tips to help master the art of solving those puzzles.
Catching a trophy trout can be the top moment in many fly fishers experience. The thrill of catching, and landing, that big brown that has thus outsmarted both man and nature long enough to grow to a large size is something that can keep anglers coming back to their favorite waters in hope time and time again. Yet, there are a few things we can do
So, you’ve thought it out, saved some money, and have decided to take a trip with the specific goal of fishing new water. But where do you start? With a new region, new species, new waters, and new fish looming ahead
