Shelter: From large luxury units to small one man portables, they are all becoming more mobile. Moving to find fish is a necessity and many manufacturers have heard the call.
Clothing: Space age insultex insulation technology is coming. Layering is still one of the best options, yet soon we may be able to discard the extra weight and still stay warm in sub-zero temperatures. Again easy mobility is the key.
Bait: Good old fashioned lively bait is still a key. Yet advances in texture, scent, and taste may make them less necessary. Are you willing to experiment with waxies, eurolarva, mousies and minnows?
