2 Man Tent Review

A Good Two Man Tent Review
There are many different great two man tents, and finding a quality review of these tents can also be difficult, but this is one area where relying on other outdoorsmen and other previous consumers can help.  Reviews on often give a good indication of what specific items have heavy approval, and which ones aren't seen as having nearly as much support.  Two man tents vary widely from the cheaply made $20 models that are used for kids and backyard camp outs to the more expensive and well made models for experienced travelers.

One example of an excellent 2 man tent review guide, is that HubPage, which goes into detail about these types of tents, the differences, the similarities, the expected prices, and also the major companies that produce them.  While there are many inexpensive models that will work fully functionally for most basic needs, some advanced travelers will want to do their homework to find a truly excellent tent that meets all of their more specific needs.

The Eureka Apex two person tents are the examples of what are considered high quality small tents that many serious travelers or recreational outdoor fans will find useful.

A New Fishing Blog

I stumbled upon a really good fishing blog recently, all about fishing for northern pike.  After briefly browsing through a few of the posts, I have to say that I'm impressed.  This author obviously knows his stuff, is willing to share details and strategies, and the writing style has a very nice flow to it.  In addition to this, the information goes way above and beyond a lot of the rehashed crap that you find all over niche fishing blogs online.  This is also a blog that appears to get a new post once every 1-2 weeks.  This might not seem like a lot at first, but there's no arguing with the quality of the posts, as well as their length, and that helps to make up for it.

I've long been a fan of fishing for northern pike, which is another reason why it's nice to see a blog like this beginning to show up in Google as many others that have been set up are really thinly veiled AdSense sites, and I'm just not into that kind of crap.  So for you anglers who really want some top notch info on chasing those voracious predators, take a look at the blog.  You might be surprised at some of the quality information on there.  I know I was, and that's part of the reason I'm behind on my other important work to get done :)

It's never a bad thing to learn from the pros, but it's also really nice to know that there are amateur pike anglers out there who are also willing to share their point of view on the matter.  So avoid Wikipedia and crap sites like that, and don't expect a really in detail look from some thinly veiled site.

While this list can certainly change as more and more topics are added, for now I'll leave you with links to three of my favorite posts from that blog in an attempt to give you a sense of what this dude's writing style and ability is all about.

  2. Ice Fishing for Trophy Northern Pike
  3. Pike Fly Fishing Tips for Beginners
So I hope you found that all useful, and until next time, keep up the good fight!
