Christmas Shop the December Monthly Raffle
By Monthly Raffle Director Jeff Goyert
Looking for the perfect Christmas gift for someone wanting to join the ranks of fly fishers, or maybe you need additions to you own quiver? Either way, we have you covered in our monthly raffle with a nice 6 weight 9 foot four-piece Premier rod. It has a carbon fiber style reel seat with two knurled seating rings along with nine guides and a tip top.
Matched up with this rod is a Cabela's Prestige II Premier reel, which features a large arbor design for rapid line pickup. The spool and frame are both ported cast aluminum for lightweight and strength. The drag is a stacked carbon disc system that provides control and durability.
One thing that we fly fishers all seem to have is a lot of "stuff", consequently we need something to put all this "stuff" in. Take a look at this Fishpond style V-mesh vest. Fully adjustable with more zippered pockets than I could count with both hands. Padded shoulder straps keep you comfortable all day while the mesh back provides ventilation on hot summer days. This vest rides high and dry when used with your float tube and is loaded with D-rings, rod straps, and a back hang net tether.
Not to speak for all of us, but let's just say that some of us sometimes need some help tying up tiny flies with skinny leaders; think 7x florocarbon on a number 22 dry. To the rescue comes, from Carson, a clip-on, flip-up "Visormag". It turns your hat into a hands-free plus-3.00 magnifer. It fits most hats or hat cap brims and comes with a protective carry case.
