At least one of the MAWOI employees (ahem . . .) manages to get out a few times a year to far off lands to do a bit of fishing. Wether its Ontario or Aruba I usually take about 80% of the same gear.
Watch: Timex Easy Reader with NATO strap. I’ve been eyeing these for months now and seeing one in action finally makes me think it’s a solid solution for that inexpensive travel watch.
Shirt: Brooks Brothers Slim Fit Madras Sport.
Shell: Penfield 35th Anniversary Pacjac.

Belt: Military Web.
Pants: Garbstore Peasant Chino.
Dry Bag: Simms Dry Creek Camera Bag.
Croakies: Cotton Suiters.
