Balaclava SA Face Shield Review

Maybe you’re asking “what the heck is a balaclava?”. Good question!

balaclava face shield reviewA balaclava is one of those stretchy things that you can wear to cover your face and neck during cold weather or hot weather. In colder climates, it provides protection from the cold and wind. In warmer climates, it provides protection from the sun, preventing sunburn.

They’ve become wildly popular during the last year or two. Pro anglers and amateurs alike are wearing them for protection from the elements. Some people even use them to keep pollen out of their face during the spring season. And even mosquitos can be kept at bay if they’re biting your exposed skin.

Vicious Fishing Fluorocarbon Fishing Line Review

Vicious Fishing Fluorocarbon Fishing Line ReviewI like fluorocarbon fishing line. I really like it for specific applications. It’s strong, tough and sensitive. To me, it’s the best line for fishing with soft plastics, jigs and other baits that require more sensitivity to detect subtle bites. I fish it confidently in brush piles, weed mats and rock cover, with no fear of it failing when I set the hook and fight a big fish out of heavy cover.

Well, let me clarify that. I have confidence in some fluorocarbon lines. But Vicious Fishing’s 100% fluorocarbon line isn’t one of them. Stick with me for the next few minutes and I’ll tell you why I would make a statement like that.
