Professional Edge Fishing with the Ike Foundation
Professional Edge Fishing, a South Jersey marketing agency that represents multiple fishing brands, has partnered with The Ike Foundation for the past several years to get kids interested in fishing and other outdoor activities. The foundation was founded by professional bass angler Mike Iaconelli and his wife Becky — the president of Professional Edge Fishing — in 2014. It focuses on youth in areas where such activities are not readily available. Its mission is to help youth develop a love of the outdoors at an early age and teach them to appreciate the planet and its natural resources. The foundation has donated thousands of rods, reels, lures and tackle boxes to kids around the country. Professional Edge Fishing has raised $300,000 for the foundation and continues to plan special events such as celebrity fishing tournament where kids can fish with, and compete against, professionals.

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
My only complaint is that eventually, backflushing won’t be enough. These can clog up after some time and no amount of back flushing will fix its low flow. I went through 2 on the AT. However, it will attach to Smart Water Bottles and most bladders!
Built for backcountry reliability and portability, the Sawyer Squeeze filter is our pick for the best portable water purifier.
The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).
