If you’re reading this then I’ve successfully installed our new 2010 redesigned theme! I’m still in the process of poking around looking for and fixing minor bugs. If you notice any problems with the theme or site please do not hesitate to contact us (email@example.com).
There are a number of surprises in this theme, some of which you may not notice right away, and others we haven’t even turned on yet. One of my favorite additions, and also one of the last, is the new rating system for reviews. We’ve ditched that boring old star rating system and opted for our own purely custom system. The ranking system is from 0 to 5, with relative ranks in the order of: FAIL, Feeble, Flawed, Fair, Fantastic, and Furious. Hopefully we won’t be seeing any failed and feeble product reviews anytime soon, but it’s entirely possible. Below are two examples of what the ratings look like. You can read the Springwood Cottages review for a real-world example.
Please let us know what you think in the comments, your opinion is important to us!
This is a custom rating message about something.

The 2010 offerings Bug Slinger are pretty slick. Featuring some awesome designs on organic threads, Bug Slinger has created one of the best fishing themed line of apparel I have ever seen. Check it out!
Bug Slinger™ is an art-driven clothing line born somewhere between the Florida Keys and the Driftless area of southwest Wisconsin. We started like many other brands, with the simple goal to make clothes that appealed to those we share interests with. The Bug Slinger team has set out to create a hip brand built around artistic designs to reflect a fresher insight into the sport. Our clothing is an outward expression of the way we and many others view fly fishing. The designs for our shirts, hats and accessories are influenced by current trends from the action sports, fashion and music industries. The majority of the Bug Slinger™ products are now being printed on 100% organic ring spun cotton and specific styles with eco-conscious, water-based inks.
Striped bass fishing is picking up here in Nova Scotia. I’m hoping to catch my first Canadian striped bass this weekend. While researching striped bass I came across this awesome video featuring a quintuple header, five fish hooked at the same time!
My good friend Phil alerted me to this fantastic swordfish tattoo by artist Matt Adamson. It’s difficult to understand the placement of the tattoo from the photos below but it looks to me like the tops of the shoulders, as if the swordfish has gone through the neck. Matt is [...]
This exotic fish may be native to southeast asia, but would you believe there’s one place in the United States where you can catch one right along side a largemouth bass. While they’re most commonly found here in aquariums many misinformed owners don’t realize they can grow up to 40″ [...]
The fishing season is off to a fantastic start this year! Last weekend marked the opening of trout season here in Ontario and though I was only able to get out yesterday, my friends and I still managed to have a fantastic day on the river. We woke up early [...]
We haven’t done a caption contest in a while, mostly because it takes a very special picture or video to inspire us. Today we have a video so wild we couldn’t even describe it! Hopefully you’ll have better luck though. The best description of this video left in the comments [...]

My XTRATUF II boots have been the footwear of choice for winter fishing this year and they’ve been fantastic on every outing. I’m sad that they’ll be put away in the next few weeks as summer approaches, but I’m very happy knowing they’re ready and waiting for next winter. When [...]
