To complement the minimalist style of Tenkara I was thinking of obtaining some kind of new bag. Obviously all I need to stick in it will be some tippet, flies, car keys and possibly a mobile phone. I was thinking of using an old camera case however when thinking about it I decided it would [...]
I was browsing around looking for the usual knick knacks that one may need for a day on the river and found myself perusing the survival area of Outwood Sports. I find myself looking at stuff that I may want however do not actually need. A classic example is the Lifesystems Survival Bothy.

So I got home [...]
