My River/Stream Essentials

Anytime I find myself on my local rivers or streams fishing, you will find these items on my person.

  • A homemade pouch that holds my plastic baits and jig heads.
  • A Sawyer Squeeze water filter. It allows me to drink from the river without having to carry extra water bottles which add a lot of weight.
  • A spool of Seaguar 6lb fluorocarbon leader material.
  • Loon mitten clamp hemo-cuts.
  • A Victorinox Alox Solo pocket knife.
  • A mini Bic lighter.
  • Abel nippers..
  • A ziplock bag containing a small chamois for cleaning my eyeglasses and sunglasses.

So why did I start this blog?

To begin with, I enjoy fishing and would like to share some of my adventures. Secondly, I am by no means a social media expert and have always enjoyed blogs rather than videos and so forth.

I am not a tech-whiz when it comes to video editing or high-end professional photography, and as such, would rather spend my time fishing as to getting the perfect photo op. I figured that a blog might be an easier format for me to share the adventures with you.

I have been fascinated by our Neosho-strain Smallmouth Bass for several years. Their uniqueness as well as their habitat and fighting ability was enough to sway me to seek them out almost exclusively these past few years.

Along the way I will share some of the gear I use as well as techniques.
