Dan at Adventures Northwest was lucky enough to have his Quest Ultra-Light Jacket during his latest encounter with an afternoon river rainstorm. Seems like we are both glad he packed this super light jacket.
The Sage Quest Ultra-light jacket weighs a mere 11 ounces (for the XL I wore) and packs into a neat bundle about the size of a soda can. Tucked into my vest, I barely knew it was there. But when pressed into use, it offers big-time performance.

The guys at Deneki have produced a few great posts on spey and switch fishing for trout. Here is their latest installment with some good info!
Anyhow, trout fishing with two handed rods has come a long way in the past three years. We thought we’d give you a little update on the state of the art from our perspective, and the most obvious way to do that in our minds was to cover what’s changed, and what’s stayed the same.

If you’re like most of us who work around here, viewing images of tropical locations, turquoise-blue flats, and fish that you know make reels sing and forearms burn is just the ticket to make any day, a better day. So, take the time to dream a little bit while Pat Ford takes us on a journey to Bimini, Florida. (click on the images to make them bigger and daydream worthy).
Lately people have asked about my favorite location to catch bonefish and permit. It takes a bit of thinking, but if I had to pick just one spot it would be Bimini.
At one time or another in every fly fisher’s life he will find himself quietly looking down at a broken rod. That sinking feeling. Maybe it was a favorite, or maybe it’s the night before a bonefish trip. There are many ways to break a rod and, over the years, I have been guilty of more than my share. Sometimes the fault lies in the rod, but more likely it is operator error.
If Planet Permit were looking for a new capital to spike its flag, Placencia, Belize would be a frontrunner. Located in the heart of Central America’s flats fishing la zona, it’s an area frequented by fish—tarpon, bones, snook, and permit—but one still mostly untapped compared to more frequented offerings running north and up through Ascension Bay.
