Get into these serious R1® Gloves if, as a serious hard-core angler, you want to keep your hands warm and nimble even in freezing rain, icy wind and cold water. That would be pretty much 7 months of the year, round these parts. The thin, flexible 1.5mm smooth-skin neoprene outer stops wind and shrugs off moisture, while the combination nylon/polypropylene/spandex insulation locks in warmth. A 3-panel, stitched and glued construction with anatomically placed seams provides remarkable formfitting comfort, water-resistance and dexterity. What makes these "new and improved" is that they've added a light, neoprene-dipped skin to make the R1s even more durable and waterproof. Patagonia gets the hard-core angler every time. Seriously.
Smooth-skin neoprene laminated to a plush polypropylene lining
3-panel construction and anatomically placed seams for better fit and durability
We are uncertain about these mesh landing mitts or gloves, but we get asked for them all the time. Get the best, if you can - that would be Orvis in this case. One size fist most.
FISHPOND Swivel Retractor
We love this retractor; it never fails. And that's what you want in a retractor. It's really all you need -- it does not fall off, it does not come undone, it does not give up its zing after a month of use. So it's a plus, to say the least, that these retractors, the Lichen and the Gunmetal, are also devastatingly handsome, extra-well designed in the utility department, and care free.
FISHPOND PIOPOD (Pack It Out) Microtrash Container
When Fishpond came out with this product, I admit I was skeptical. That was back before I had a flyshop. I just wasn't sure anyone I knew would use one of these things. Fast foreward to now, and I know for a fact that tons of people use these. They use them, give them to friends, keep a spare and buy again if they lose theirs. It's just smart, considerate, and true to the core ethics of our sport.
If it matters to you what color, shoot us a note with your order.
Rugged, durable, recyclable construction with unique elastomeric cap readily accepts used tipped, wrappers, drowned cigarette butts, etc.

FISHPOND Barracuda Clipper
I've been using Fishpond's clippers ever since they started making them, and each edition is better than the last. The patented, aerospace grade aluminum tubular body is larger than previous versions, meaning they're easier to hold and handle, especially for larger hands and allows for comfortable and precise use for that perfect cut. New for 2015 is the chopping block design with one replaceable stainless steel blade which allows for a cleaner, more consistent cut than two opposing blades. Handsome (as most things Fishpond), the clippers pair nicely with Fishpond Swivel Retractors.
Note: Stainless steel blades will rust in saltwater, so treatment with a rust inhibitor and lubricant before use is essential. Don’t forget to rinse and treat again after use.

FISHPOND Arrowhead Retractor- Moss
Quite possibly the most purposeful, elegant, and timeless piece of design by mankind is the arrowhead. This iconic treasure brings back visions of our American identity like nothing else.

EXOFFICIO BugsAway Sol Cool Neck Gaiter
Not your ordinary neck gaiter. The ExOfficio BugsAway Sol Cool Gaiter is so much more. It's got BugsAway Insect repellent technology, for one thing. It also has Sol Cool, which uses Icefil technology to keep you cool and comfortable in hot climates. The compound Xylitol, which occurs naturally in the birch tree, is woven into fabric. When it comes into contact with moisture like sweat, it reacts, creating a cooling sensation similar to mint gum. Xylitol can cool the skin surface up to 5°F

RIO Intermediate Scandi Body
These are versatile bodies that combine skagit power with scandi style and grace. The design is such that it casts like a skagit or a scandi line. There's a printed ID on it, so you know what's what, with loops on both ends, of course.
The Scandi body is a short body to which you can attach nearly any kind of tip (see our RIO MOW tips, for instance). Ideal for anglers who want to travel light but with multiple strategic options.
