Looking good, some massive beasts there.


Also how do you like that Redington Jacket, I typically wear one of my snowboarding jackets, but been thinking of getting one that is more for fishing.

I've 'trans-shipped' three of these to the UK, fellows think they're the Bee's Knees. Last box in the mail (don't ask what it costs to do same ...) was a Simms. Have to admit, as I re-boxed same, really nice, really nice.

I have to say they are bomb proof! I was wearing just one long sleeve shirt and the jacket in about 40* weather and was feeling good. If you dont have to walk much to your fishing spot then you might want to put on a extra light jacket and you will be set for being plenty warm and water proof part is not a joke. This jacket has it all. My only complaint would be the hood. Its a tad big but if you wear a baseball cap it will be fine plus had quite a few adjustments to make it fit your head.
