REVIEW: Salty Scales Fishing Shirts

I love a good fishing shirt. My ideal shirt has UPF 50+, is soft with no seams that rub, no buttons, and has to be a long sleeve. If it’s got a cool design, that really adds to the appeal.

REVIEW: 13 Fishing Concept Z Baitcasting Reel

I first saw the Concept Z in person at a local tackle shop, Tightlines PFT in Killeen, last week.

Public boat ramps can give you Continue Reading
