Hi all,

This is something that has always intrigued me: tinkering and improving things. With all your years of knowledge and experience, what are some things about the fishing world that you would like to see improved?

Alternatively, what is a product that you would like to see on the market, but don't?

How about DNE come up with a simple but bulletproof way to incorporate float stops into their bobbers so I can quit carrying around these dam toothpicks

On breathable waders, neoprene that doesn't leak after 7 days, also way more abrasion resistance legs and crotch seams

Fishing line spool new with abrasion.
Good lures with crappy hooks.
A fishing rod with the porcelaine falling out of an eyelit.
Leaking waders
Dead worms in a new pack
A float that wont go under.

A product i would like to see more available...invisable fishing weights.

Try top shelf floats. Pricey, but they have that exact thing. I've been using them lately, and really like them!

2 mm neoprene wading socks slid over your feet before your boots go on will fix that forever.

Have you tried Raven line? I've had great success with it. Floats high, is strong, fairly abrasion resistant, comes in a bunch of colours, and is very thin for its lb rating! It's inexpensive too!

They could build bulletproof waders but they won't because they wouldn't be selling as many waders when people need to replace them.  Kind of like household appliances.

This is pretty much the only problem I have with Gibbs lures.

I suspect the reason is more that it would be far more expensive and would compromise greatly on the usability (ie weight, stiffness, breathability, etc). Planned obsolescence probably doesn't even factor into it as if one company made a significantly more durable wader at a competitive price, it would be a huge selling point over all other companies. Someone out there would do it if they could.

I like this idea. Or even a 3 piece would be nice. You see multi-piece fly rods all the time. Do it as a line of blanks for custom builders, and I'd buy it.
