The TechVest Premium Fly Fishing Vest Stands Head and Shoulders Above the Rest
October 29, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsAllen Peters, a former fly shop owner in Billings, Montana asserts without reservation, “I’ve owned a ton of vests and the TechVest is by far the best one I’ve ever had.”
A Seasoned Fly Fisherman and Engineer
Les Zuck, the owner and designer of the TechVest, is a native Montanan that has fished the pristine waters of Montana all his life and accumulated an understanding of the rigors that fly fisherman face on the water. Since Zuck retired as an engineer, he devoted his talent to the sport he truly loves, fly fishing.
As a former President of Magic City Fly Fishers, the Billings chapter of Trout Unlimited, Zuck had lots of opportunity to fish and visit with other fly fisherman about their concerns. Combining his experiences and resources, Zuck has carefully thought through every detail of the TechVest to bring the absolute best product available to the sport of fly fishing.
Announcing the TechVest Premium
Now TechVest is proud to introduce the TechVest Premium package that includes the essential tools and supplies the TechVest was designed to carry. Zuck’s company continues to provide the TechVest Basic with the pre-formed toolbox that holds each piece of a fisherman’s existing gear securely in it’s own slot with retractors, and now the TechVest Premium with Gink Floatant, Dr. Slick Scissor Clamp, Lake Products Knot-tying Tool, Tie-Fast Line Clippers, two Flambeau Large Pocket Fly Boxes, and two Flambeau Small Pocket Fly Boxes.
In keeping with the versatility for which the TechVest is known, TechVest also allows fly fisherman to buy the TechVest Basic and add whatever tools they need to complete their fishing toolbox.
Allows Natural Movement
Allen Peters is a very thankful TechVest customer that explains, “Les' TechVest is a Godsend for us guys that have fished for 30 or 40 years. It combines all the things that we have had to makeshift on our own with other vests – ease of movement catches fish, and that's what we are all out there for.”
Lightweight and Versatile
The TechVest is full of unique features that are combined in one extremely versatile vest. There are 5 D-rings on the backpack so a fisherman can position his net left or right, high or low, or directly behind the head at top center. These same D-rings hold the removable stuff bag. When fly fishermen wade in deep, most vests fill with water and weigh about 4 pounds heavier. The zippered backpack on the TechVest has a mesh bottom that allows water to drain. The backpack remains light and dries out more quickly than other vests.
Keeps Gear Dry
The next great feature is the position of the TechVest. It rides high on the fisherman’s body. This enables fly fisherman to wade in deep and keep their gear dry. Other vests are like wearing a heavy coat. The TechVest is lightweight and has shoulder and waist straps that are adjustable, allowing for the natural movements of a fly fisherman. The vest is designed to fit youth, women and men. Since the TechVest has a high position, it works very well for float tube fishing.
Every Tool Fits in a Secure Slot with a Retractor
One of the most amazing features is the custom designed toolbox. Every tool fits in its own slot held securely in place with a retractor. A fisherman can keep their focus on the water instead of fumbling around in their vest. Everything slides right back into its slot without even thinking about it. Fly fishermen can easily organize their flies with two fly box pockets on the right and two more on the left of the toolbox. Fly fishermen that use the TechVest know where their equipment is at all times. TechVest has taken the struggle out of fly fishing and simplified the process, making it more relaxed and enjoyable for the fisherman.
An Impressive Fly Fishing Gift
The TechVest Premium is a unique gift. It has all the essential tools a fly fisherman needs so the gift giver doesn’t have to figure out what the recipient does or does not have in the way of fly fishing gear. Two split shot dispensers fit snugly in the toolbox held securely by retractors. These are custom designed and manufactured by Zuck’s company and cannot be found in any other vest. The TechVest Premium is a one-of-a-kind gift that will truly impress any fly fisherman!
