Several new products for the angler by Cuda!

APtravelnews-July 29th, Goose Holler’ Farms—Barb and I visited iCast; a huge manufacturers show in Orlando, FL The Orange County Convention Center was the host facility and this year both a fly fishing manufacturers show and iCAST were next to each other in the huge halls of the convention center.

We walked and talked, visited with numerous companies, both startup entrepreneurs and existing long- term players in the fisherman’s market place such as Shimano, Garcia, Mustad Hooks, Rapala Lures, Diaichi Hooks and baits, and so many others, but only about 20-percent of what was on display over the three days we were there could be properly visited. There was a display of new fishing equipment and a “Best of Show” new products display. We focused in on several unique items, and the following posts that will display images and offer descriptions of some of the more ingenious or wonderfully well made of these products.

Cuda Brand offered many brand new items and we will describe a few: A range of different length Titanium filet and fish knives. We have been looking for a very strong, yet flexible blade for our fresh water fishing needs. We like crappie and other panfish as well as walleye and trout. The 3X sharper Titanium No. 4 model filet knife was just the ticket! This knife was designed for smaller fish. The precision ground edge is 3-times stronger than steel. The Stainless Steel blade is of German 4116 corrosion resistant metalics. The non-slip Cuda scale pattern grip is first rate for me. There is actually a visible full-tang throughout the knifes length.  WWW.cudabrand.com  Check out the other 10 model knives of all sizes.

This Cuda Model filet knife works great with smaller fish such as panfish and trout!

Baby Bubbles Portable Air Pump Brings em’ Back Alive

P1020731P1020736 P1020730APtravelnews-July 27th, Goose Holler Farms-Crossville, TN.-Marine Metal Products besides manufacturing a string of great bait tank aerators, now has Baby Bubbles-a clip on the pail half the size of a cigarette pack bubble blower that really works terrific! I recently tried it out on a 5-gallon pail of water with some of my sunfish swimming around breathing easy during a hot summer day. The unit comes with a 24-inch long tubing, airstone set and it runs about 20 hours on up 1 or two AA batteries. It has an adjustable stainless steel clip and a rubber protected switch. This is designed as a backup aquarium pump and can be used in fresh and saltwater. Simplicity is what makes this unit perfect! Its job is to “bring em back and keep them alive.” This Baby Bubbles does just that! Cost is about $4.95 to $6.95 retail and anyone that owns an aquarium or uses minnows or shrimp for bait should always have one in their arsenal of equipment! Ask for it at all retail outlets that sell fishing gear. If you cannot find it call-727-461-5575

Davis Instruments Hits It Out of the Park With Their New SoliCharger SP With Speakers

Using our Samsung Note 2 we watched the charge go up after less that 5-minutes hookup.

APtravelnews– American Press Travel News—July 26th, Goose Holler’ Farms, Crossville, TN. –Davis Instruments Corporation has come out with another extremely usable and interesting, innovative product.

This new SOL_LIGHT™, SoliCharger-SP™   that we have had to try and test is right-on as described here. The solar charger is married to High Output Speakers in a rugged carrying case, all in one! The charger can charge any iPhone, iPod, MP3 player, cell phone, digital camera. We tested the unit attached to our Samsung Note 2, our lap top computer, our grand kids Play station and Barbs iPod. Not only were they being charged nicely, but we enjoyed a rich (surprisingly clear and adjustable voluminous) sound from the built-in speakers. There is a tiny purple light that shows how the unit is charging and always ready to offer that charge to the above named electronics. The unit has a large capacity internal battery that the photovoltaic built-in panel charges anytime sunlight strikes it.

The unit is wonderfully compact and good looking and there are connective plugs and wires that fit virtually any small electronic buss plugs. The adapters are for 32 pin Apple, USB, USB Mini, and USB Micro. The specs are: a 5.5 volt, 70 milliamp solar panel. The internal battery is a 2000 milliamp lithium-ion battery. The DC Input is 5-6 volt, 500 milliamp and the output is 300-500 milliamp. The speakers are two 3 watt amplified units.

We love this unit and as travel writers, we are always using our laptop and other electronics on the go. So we have decided to keep it and even buy another! Go: www.davisnet.com  for more information on this solidly built unit!

A great idea! Sound and charger in this SoliCharger SP with speakers is rock solid great!
