Mention bamboo to fly fishers and thoughts of a handcrafted rod immediately come to mind.
Now comes BOODYWEAR for men, women and children with fabric made of bamboo textiles.
I’ve worn the well-fitting boxer style briefs that are designed to give men maximum support while being lightweight and dry.
As a rule I never wear T-shirts but I made an exception and tried the Boody “T.” This too was lightweight and very comfortable to the point I forgot I had it on under another shirt.
Because it’s getting near time to get ice fishing gear together I’m going through my socks to see what might work better this year.
Boody socks are thick, stay in place, are warm and best of all, seams seem to disappear. With all of my socks I feel the seam that runs along the ball of the foot.
The seams in these socks make for a smooth fit. I wore them all day yesterday in a pair of Dockers loafers.
I never had to pull them or make any other adjustment. Check BOODYWEAR products out at boodywear.com.
Get ready to give that BOODYWEAR clothing a test along with those winter duds that have been hanging in the basement since last ice season.
Mark Martin's Ice Fishing Vacation School will hold a session on Saginaw bay February 5-8 out of Linwood Beach Marina.
If the slow action of winter is getting you down, a trip to the Bay may be just the ticket to left the spirits.techniques from a Fishing Hall of Fame member and tournament walleye professional.
Mark Martin lives in Michigan so he understands and is familiar with our many lakes, especially large bodies of water like Saginaw Bay.
A typical Martin ice fishing school begins with registration. Students are given a schedule of each days events along with a gift bag with many of the latest lures and other useful equipment.
Once registration is complete, Martin, along with several of his pro staff that have accumulated years of knowledge as tournament anglers speak about some of the finer points of ice fishing.
Persons new to the sport won't feel overwhelmed with knowledge because these seminars always begin with the basics; what line to use, how to rig it, should you use snaps or swivels, and what about leaders? All of these questions and more get covered.
You'll want to bring your personal equipment in for this meeting if nothing more than have experienced people look it over to be sure your set up is as good as it can be to help make you successful.
