Clearing out a few more of the sights we took in during our coverage of #IFTD, we bring you a fishing accessory that can make anybody look cool on the water. Dragonfly Boatwork's new paddle boards combine fishing, surfing, and paddling to give you a stealthy approach to your quarry. MSRP $1,700 - 1,900 depending on the model. Mondo cool WWII nose art has to be extra.

Could aluminum bars on the bottom of your boots keep you from slipping while wading? Patagonia, whose very existence goes back products forged in fire, certainly has expertise in this sort of thing. Aluminum is a soft metal, so it makes sense to me that it could work on slippery moss covered rocks. What do you think?
The crampon version in the second picture, could make for a nice addition to your recently purchased rubber soled wading boots.
Waterworks-Lamson hopes so with their new portable 2.2 Gallon Gear Shower. The gear shower clips to the partially open window of your vehicle and uses gravity to feed gear cleansing water to a shower head.
The idea is that you have a ready source of H2O to clean the invasive nasties off your gear. Another application might be using it to get the salt off your reels (or you) after a day of surf fishing. Will you be ditching those old gallon milk jugs in favor of this $49.95 MSRP option? Am I the only one who can think of some Carl's Jr style web commercials that might help these things fly off the shelves at the fly shop?

I'm not sure how well it will fit in my fishing vest, but the MFC Boat Box from Montana Fly Company might just finally fulfill my urge to carry all my fishing flies with me. Holding up to 4000 bugs of all shapes an sizes, it works great in a boat or a truck. www.MontanaFly.com .
Drinking beer to save wild salmon. Getting business done at the Sage/sportsman's Alliance for Alaska's happy hour gathering. Scott Hed of SAA gave an update on the fight and Sage gave away a custom fly rod as a fund raiser. More on this fight later.

We finally put some clothes on and left the basement behind and are waiting to board a plane for the flight to the Big Easy. Watch this space for our coverage of all the International Fly Tackle Show festivities. Bonus points if you can I.d. the source of the basement reference.
