Dragontail Shadowfire 360 Tenkara Rod Review
blog     20 Oct 2014 | 4:56 pm
The Dragontail Shadowfire 360 Tenkara Fly Fishing Rod is a great rod at an even greater price. For the budding Tenkara angler looking to get into the sport, this is a great first rod. The rod has a 6:4 action, so it falls right in the middle of the flex scale (2.5 – 12.5). The softer action is great for working fish on a finer tippet, which reduces the risk of the tippet breaking.                     Pros The Shadowfire is an extraordinary value. For less than $100 you get a beautiful 12’ rod. The rod is perfectly suited for medium to large rivers as well...

Hip Patrol Patches
Blog     20 Oct 2014 | 2:01 pm
If scouts in your troop or Webelos den are tired of the same old choices in official BSA patrol emblems, have them take a peak at patrol emblems where they may find something new and fun.Maybe the BSA will regain some of the market lost to custom patrol patch manufacturers with these new patrol options. Some are just redesigns of older versions, like the Native American and Bison patches. Others strike me as silly, such as the Computer Geek and Game Master patches. And a few, Raven, Knight, Bull, look pretty cool to me.If you want to just see...

Blog     20 Oct 2014 | 10:29 am
Elections, Boards of Review, and Conferences Should a Scout be denied a Scoutmaster’s conference because, horror of horrors, he’s wearing white socks? I hope you know the answer to that already, but in this podcast I answer an email question from a parent whose son is having a problem with getting though a Scoutmaster’s conference because the adults conducting them have no idea what they are doing (this answer includes some advice about finding a new troop).
