Tippets: Glass Geeks Forum, Outdoor Gear of the Year, Maggot Vending Machines

November 27, 2011 By: Marshall Cutchin

  • Cameron Mortenson notes that the popular Fiberglass Flyrodders Forum has moved to a new home.
  • Gear Junkie offers its annual list of the ten best new outdoors products, as tested and worn by staffers.
  • If you must know, maggots are good for bait only for about a day after beginning to pupate, so enterprising British bait fishers began controlling the fly life cycle some time ago, culminating in vending machines that slow the process through refrigeration.  You can contribute to a new map of maggot vending machines by responding to “maggot vending machines and you” via Caught by the River.  Or not.
