We always expect Fishpond to bring something that absolutely leaps off the shelf (can we just concede that Fishpond is one of the very best “curb appeal” point-of-sale performers in all the outdoors, not just fishing?) This time was no different. We like the Thunderhead Submersible Duffle, particularly the carry-on size that retails for $300. Not a lot of pocket frills, just a great, distinctive look with climbing rope handles, bright color, and durability. It’s also 100% waterproof! A lot of traveling anglers are going to want these. We also like the “River Rat” beverage holder, which hangs around your neck as you row a boat. At $29.95, that’s a good gift item for any beer-drinkin’ oarsman (or oarswoman).
