Today’s giveaway (you can tell was are in holiday giveaway mode here) comes from a guy who has been fishing Montauk beaches longer than I have been alive. I told you years ago that then current infatuation with custom this and that, particularly bags will not last. Neither did plug craze or recent rod craze either. Nothing wrong with these little moments of euphoria but they do all end sooner or later. What is important to me is who is left standing. Super Strike Lures are still here and still crazy productive. St Croix rods are not going anywhere and neither are VS reels. And Barry Kronberg from RockHopper Fishing has seen these things comes and go one…or twice. Considering he has been fishing Montauk beaches since 1961, he has seen a thing or two. And tried just about any new gadget that came on the market. And yet he still felt compelled to make his own as he was not satisfied with what he found. His belt clips are absolutely to me a must-have item on my belt. Often a bunch depending if I am wet suiting or wader fishing.

Today we are going to giveaway a RockHopper Surf Belt, one of the finest surf belts we have ever used. Here is a description from his website

Our Surf Belt is a really simple design that’s incredibly bomb proof and works the way it’s supposed to every time. Designed especially for use with waders and wetsuits, you can adjust your gear and make it as tight as you want while still wearing it. Move your gear around or lock it in place, your choice. It’s extremely comfortable, totally adjustable and incredibly secure. Made with Rockhopper’s attention to simple design and superior quality.
