Tell us why you NEED to have this KIWI Camp Dry adventure pack. Do you have some new gear that needs that added level of protection? Or maybe you’re a poor student who needs to make his gear last one more year? The winning comment and most deserving person will be chosen next Monday on March 5th. Good luck!

Liquipel is not a case or static film, it’s a microscopic hydrophobic (water repellent) nano-tech armour. The Liquipel treatment means your favorite electronics will be 100% water proof (inside an out!) with absolutely no visible changes, and the treatment is said to outlast the lifetime of your device. Armour your iPhone4s costs about $60 USD plus shipping, though right now Liquipel is offering free ground shipping to start. If they could put some of these machines nearby where I could drop-off items for a few hours to be waterproofed I’d be the first person in line. I would do my iPad, iPhone, and 7D at the same time probably even my macbook if the price was right.
Last week we quietly passed another great milestone here at Fishing Fury- 5,000 comments! To celebrate I thought we’d give away some stuff to our awesome users who helped us reach the 5,000 mark. Tell us in the comments below why you love our blog for your chance to win and we’ll choose two winners at random this weekend. Comment as many times as you like!
New posts will appear below this one until we choose the winners this weekend.
Our randomly chosen winners are…. Woody and Mike! Sammy was a winner but he said he didn’t need a hat and even after emailing him to say that he won he said we should select another winner, so we did! Congrats to all and thank you for joining in our celebration!
Earlier this year, when it was still snowing outside I received two of the newest products from Kiwi Camp Dry, both the Performance Fabric Protector and the Heavy Duty Water Repellent. These two products are designed not only to protect your clothes, boots, tents, and sleeping bags, from water and dirt by “defying the elements”, but can also to extend the lifetime of your gear for relatively little cost.
The Performance Fabric protector is designed to repel water, dirt and stains. The spray is quick to dry, contains no silicone, and will protect your garments without discolouration and without sacrificing breathability. The fabric protector can be used on any synthetic fabrics including nylon and even Gore-Tex®. Use it to protect your outdoor furniture, boat covers, fleece hats, gloves, and even your kids clothing can benefit from an added layer of stain protection.
To test this product I chose to use it on my Misty Mountain soft shell jacket that is made of polyester and designed to be water resistant and breathable. I know from my experience in Algonquin Park that in a light rain the water can be repelled for about an hour before the rain will start to be absorb through to the inner layer that touches your skin, but in heavy rain it might only be minutes. I also know that if you come home clean from a camping trip you weren’t having enough fun out there and I had my fair share of stains and mud to wash out of my jacket.
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 [...]
Earth Day 2013 is here! When is Earth Day? Earth Day is honored around the world on April 22, although larger events such as festivals and rallies are often organized for the weekends before or after April 22. Many communities also observe Earth Week or Earth Month, organizing a series [...]
