5 Ways to Fish Your Refund

Ivan Orsic / Apr 20, 2017

Good old Tax Day just passed and, if you're anything like me, you're figuring out how to spend that "found" money. Summer is around the corner and there's no better time to get familiar with a new piece of gear before the you're knee deep on a big freestone or small creek waiting for those magic hour risers. With that in mind, here are five ways to fish your tax refund.

1. Rods: In the words of our own Dave Lovell, getting a new rod is like getting a new puppy. The rod is eager to please and it's just a matter of training yourself and the rod to perform to your expectations. Get yourself a new rod today and you'll have a "good dog" by the time summertime hits.

2. Reels: Summer fishing can take you to any number of waters. Big freestones, small creeks, and maybe even a little urban carp fishing. Get the reel that can handle all those situations and more.

3. Coolers: A cold riverside beverage is a must with the temperatures on the rise. Keep your cold snacks chilled with these coolers.

4. Fly Lines: Nothing helps your cast more than a new slick fly line passing through the guides of your fly rod.

5. Wading: Nothing ruins a day on the water quicker than an ill fitting, toe-stubbing, pair of old boots. Step up your wading game with some of our boots, socks and waders.
