For multiple reasons, I was not able to get to the mountains for any fishing the entire winter, and since I couldn't fish, I compensated by buying myself a few new "toys".
Anyway, Saturday I got out and tried out my WJ Mag series Current chest pack, as well as my waist-high gortex waders I got on clearance from LL Bean. What a difference! Especially the chest pack - didn't miss at all the several pounds of gear I left at home in the old vest.
I think I gonna enjoy fishing a lot more this year, especially when it gets hot.
