There’s a reason that the Orvis Helios 3 lineup of rods has been showered with a long list of awards (including landing in our “Gear we love” column more than once) and has been Orvis’ most successful rod series ever: they’re the best rods Orvis has ever made and some of the best rods anglers have ever had the opportunity to chase fish with. As we noted back in 2019, it’s a series fly rods that continues to impress as we continue to explore it, and one where “we’ve yet to fish an H3 model that didn’t end up becoming a favorite.” That was true then, and it’s true now, even as Orvis continues to expand its Helios 3 lineup with more specialized offerings. And the perfect reel pairing for the Helios 3? That’s Orvis’ silky-smooth, wonderfully light, fully machined, sealed disk drag Mirage LT reel.

It wasn’t long ago that good waterproof packs, bags, and luggage aimed at anglers were fairly hard to come by. Thankfully, over the five or so years, manufacturers wised up and anglers now have a healthy list of quality options to choose from—options that will keep clothes, electronics, and other sensitive gear dry, but also stand up to the abuse heaped upon them by rafts, drift boats, pack horses, pickup truck tailgates, and, of course, airline baggage handlers. Of this new generation of waterproof luggage, however, none do their job better than YETI’s lineup of Panga packs and duffels. We’ve raved about the Panga repeatedly, and have carted them from one corner of the globe to another, over and over again, beating and battering them and waiting for them to fail. Only they don’t. Despite years of abuse, our Panga bags are no worse for the wear. From seams to zippers to straps and clasps, every item on YETI’s lineup of Panga bags is over-engineered, over-built, and thoughtfully designed. The combination of the YETI waterproof Panga 50L duffel and 28L Backpack will faithfully protect anglers’ most sensitive gear, and will probably do it for a generation or more.

Relative newcomer Bajio Sunglasses has made an enormous splash since descending on the angling scene last year. Launched by ex-Costa sunglasses Vice President Al Perkinson in the wake of the acquisition of competitors Smith and Costa by large international conglomerates, Bajio now has the distinction of being the only independent premium eyewear brand in the fishing world. According to Perkinson, Bajio’s mission is to build sunglasses “for the next generation” by addressing a decline in energy an industry that’s long been lead by brands that are almost 40 years old. That includes ambitious goals like making Bajio a carbon neutral company. Bajio lenses feature selective light-blocking technology similar to that found in premium competitor’s lenses, albeit with Bajio’s own proprietary recipe. In April, we said Bajio “offered a fish-spotting advantage unlike any lens we’ve used in recent memory,” and our story hasn’t changed since.

We’re never quite sure whether fly anglers realize it, but the truth is we’re all living in a bit of a golden age of fly lines and terminal tackle (leaders, tippet, etc). Though fly rods and reels tend to hog the spotlight, the truth is the last decade has seen a laundry list of advancements in materials and technologies that have fly line manufacturers making the slickest, longest-lasting, most versatile, and finely-tuned fly lines the fly fishing world has ever seen. One of the brands leading that charge is Scientific Anglers. Scientific Anglers seems to be on a mission of constant advancement and innovation. With an unexpected regularity, the Michigan-based fly line, terminal tackle, and accessory manufacturer churns out new technologies and products that change the way we think about fly fishing. Perhaps the best example of that mission is Scientific Anglers Amplitude series of fly lines and terminal tackle, which never fail to impress us when we’re on the water—whether we’re chasing finicky trout on small creeks or bruiser bonefish in the Bahamas.
Win a prize pack featuring your choice of a Scientific Anglers Amplitude fly line, a Scientific Anglers Switch Tippet Spool loaded with 5 spools of Absolute Trout Tippet and a Scientific Anglers Absolute Leaders 3-Pack by entering our Autumn Giveaway below.
