Item: a cape of Jungle Cock feathers.
The cost: don't tell your wife
What you want this: Let's just get it out in the open. No other tying ingredient is more fun to bring up in conversation. Am I right? You know I am and that'w why you read this shit every day.
But for real, these feathers are amazing. You tie up saltwater bugs? You need these. You tie up salmon bugs? You need these.
Look on eBay. Right now, the feathers in the photo above are checking in at $175. Strike while it's hot. Maybe use your paypal account so you don't live in the doghouse with your new cape of feathers. And yes, you'll cry when you lose bugs made with these things attached.
More info: eBay it, dude.
What: a Regal Vise
How much: about four bills
Why: This is the only vise you'll need. It handles any hook, it's a rotary vise, your friends will hate you on tying night.
You know what this is: it is a big ass Yeti Cooler
How much debt will I incur to own this: $550 dollars for the one pictured.
Why is this the most amazing cooler ever: Living in a cave? Yeti coolers keep ice for a long time. The model pictured above ( the Tundra 125 ) hold 81 beers. Plus, it's bear resistant.
Did I just type out 81 beers and fail to mention something about that? It holds 81 beers! Take it in your new drifty and drink before the class III rapids - you won't feel thing when you sink your boat.
