I just sent a cook set complete with stove last month to a buddy deployed in Afghanistan. (He's a medic so getting 91% alcohol will be pretty easy). He's n...

Generally speaking, unless you have a steel leader, the shark will cut your line for you. :D When I was a charter fisherman in California we used a rifle, a titanium gaff and an aluminum baseball bat to get them off of the line. :o (Only if they were to be eaten) If anyone caught one and wasn't goin...

Re: new gerber knife

Re: Waterproof Tinder Idea

I have a couple of these I keep in my saddlebags. They work really well. The hook/magnet are really nice features for hands-free use.
