Staff Picks for Floating & Fishing
1. Floating Retainers
There's always a chance that your float might turn into a swim, so it’s best to be prepared. Floating retainers keep your shades visible and afloat in case right side up turns into upside down.
2. Phone Protector
Phones and water generally don’t mix, but with an extra layer of protection, they can! Floating and waterproof phone protectors keep your phone dry and off the riverbed. Plus, touch screen-compatible windows mean you don’t even have to dry your hands to text your boss that you’re not coming in that day.
3. Durable Wallet
Want to be able to afford a beer after your river trip? Make sure you have an adventure-proof wallet that will keep your cards and cash from tumbling into the deep. A floating wallet keeps your valuables at the surface if they happen to fly off the boat, but a low-profile front pocket wallet that stays slim and secure is also a good choice.
4. Dry Bag
If you’re a fan of wet clothes, you can skip this pick. For the rest of us, a dry bag is crucial for keeping your extra clothes, snacks, and essentials dry and secure. Go for a size that fits the length of your trip and tell your friends to get their own when they try to stash their stuff in yours.
5. Rescue Whistle
Being pro-level means being prepared for anything, especially the worst-case scenario. When you’re ejected out of the boat, see a bear, or come face to face with your crush, harness the power of sound so you can be rescued quickly.
