    If like me you've got a small car...and you often go from one spot to another...here's a good rod carrier.Simple,not expensive,easy to use,doesn't take room when taken into pieces(you can put the little box under a seat or in a corner of your boot)I tested it for a week in Austria( was lucky the cow didn't jump on it!!!) and been using it here for a while...very praticle.

    It slides into my butt pack alongside my fly boxes, you can work a touchscreen through to plastic, and mine has never leaked, despite being submerged multiple times. I can't say that about other pouches I've spent more than twice as much for.

    Best part? Its about $10. Found mine at Academy.

    I keep my fishing license in it all the time, and it sits underneath the phone in the pouch.
    Can you hear to talk on the phone without taking it out of the pouch??

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    I certainly hope not, Dave. The last thing we need is for more "convenient" and easier use of a cell phone while on the river!

    Last weekend I was clopping along a river it was getting hotter and I was getting tired and I kept running into more people in a place I hardly never used to see people...but it wasn't until I came upon the guy standing on a log jam, "fishing" this absolutely beautiful hole one handed while his cell phone was tucked between his shoulder and ear! I wished he had taken a swim. I cannot stand it at all.

    I agree with being frustrated when hearing a cell ring on the water because it's usually mine. But some of us have no choice and our jobs demand a cell phone at all times (even when on vacation). But as a side note: If I ever call someone just to visit while you and I are fishing, you have my permission to take the phone and slap me on the face. After I get up off the ground I will probably thank you.

    I finally ordered a Brodin net after giving a hard time to a bow that I netted with my traditional net several days ago. The poor fish was stuck in my net because the hook and the net was tangled. The fish was released unharmed. But getting the hook out of the net was a challenge. I still do not understand why pinched barbed hooks are still stuck on the net.

    I hope that Brodin will help me C and R.

    I think the Brodin nets are made in Purto Rico

    I've had to cut hooks out of my old net... You would have to not only pinch the barb but then file it down in order to prevent it from snagging on string net material. I still want a Brodin.
