1. Luminaid: This is this one of those humanitarian effort projects in the same vain as buying a pair of Tom's shoes, but I think this one is pretty slick. A solar chargeable light bag that provides ambient light and never needs batteries. Do go on. I can see this as a nifty tent light for setting up in the dark or to read a map or book. This can also double as a lantern for night fishing or paddling. As much as I deny it i'm still a sucker for things like this. Immediately after things like the recent typhoon in the Phillipines the relief effort kicks up to help those in need. I bought one of these through the "Give Light, Get Light" program. I hope the person on the receiving side of this program really needs this product. It would certainly make me feel like less of a gear mongerer.
2. Upgraded my whole fly rod setup. TFO Professional Series II with a Lamson Velocity 3 reel. Teeny fly line. So clean.
