Last night I drove over to Hooters to have a beer with the guys from Cheeky Fly fishing. From Massachusetts they are down here in Florida testing all their prototypes and networking. They are young, motivated and a has great love for the sport of fly fishing. I told them “Hopefully you’re not in it to get rich”

As you might know one of the more popular sunglasses holder these days has been the Cablz. I have been wearing one for a year now and they work great.
Well with any success story there are bound to be competition. When I was over at ICAST 2010 this past summer I saw a product from Croakies (yes the same company you see all over the place). They have a competing product called the ARC. This concept allows for the use of the band in different angle and different size glasses, where as the Cablz only fit and stay one way.
Another new Sunglass holder is the new Cudaz. It is made out of 100% silicone material. It’s very flexible and you can flip it to change the angle. They come in a variety of colors as well. Cost is about $7.00

A couple more small clips of things that a caught my eye. Again, I shot these with the Kodak Playsport.
FishouFlage LED hat and visor I thought was pretty cool. There’s lots of hat lights but this one is not so bulky and you can’t “forget” to bring it along.
Croakies Arc, sunglasses holder. This is product is similar to the Cablez that was so popular last year and won best accessory.(I use the cables). The offering from Croakeis is that it’s removable and it comes win different sizes, as far as I can tell.
