We have spent hundreds of hours researching and testing the best fishing equipment on the market. These items are fishing-tested and can be recommended without any equivocation.

Keep in mind, however, that these items are not necessarily all the highest-end items.  My goal on this page is to recommend gear that is priced really well while still maintaining a high-quality standard.  

This is the stuff I use.

The Best Waterproofing Sprays to Keep Those Beads of Water Bouncing Off Your Kit

It doesn’t matter if you’re in a boat or on the ground. There’s nothing worse than getting soaking wet while you’re fishing. In particular, you have to avoid your fishing kit getting drenched as this can ruin your equipment. It’s a mess you want to avoid altogether.

There is a way to avoid getting your absorbent gear and yourself from getting wet when out on the water – use waterproofing spray to make your gear water resistant.

Water repellency keeps you dry, lasts a long time, and doesn’t stink. It shouldn’t leave any residue behind either so your suede or leather shoes or boots, clothes, and any other outdoor materials look just as good as they did before you made them water repellent.
