I wouldn't call myself a gear junkie but I do like using quality gear.
Frustrated by sometimes superficial sales-oriented reviews of fishing gear I was interested in buying, I began doing detailed reviews of gear I was either using or had managed to loan for long enough to do a decent testing.
I later included long-term reviews of products I had used for several years.
Long-term reviews usually provide additional insight based on greater familiarity as well as information on durability.
My reviews are independent, I am not sponsored by any manufacturer, distributor or agent.
I publish reviews of products I like and believe are worth purchasing - and I only manage to test a very small fraction of the vast variety of gear out there.
While many of the products I review I've purchased beforehand, I'm grateful to those tackle distributers who've kindly loaned me gear to test.
I love researching and writing about fishing gear, and I hope the reviews on this page help guide others in making worthwhile choices.
