Hobie isnít a company that rests on it laurels. The Mirage Pro Angler 14 was introduced in 2009 and won Best of Show Honors at ICAST (International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades) that year. There have been a few minor tweaks since then, but for 2013, Hobieís big fishing boat received a major revision Ė a redesign of the deck, and the Vantage Seat introduced in 2012 on another model.
The pedal-propulsion system was retained, as was the original hull design and dimensions. The interior was made more comfortable and fishermen friend, with a transducer pocket cast into the hull to give accurate depth and temperature readings while protecting the transducer from the bumps and grinds of fishing. The results of the facelift are stunning.

Last fall, I was invited to Kodiak Island to hunt Alaskaís blacktail deer in some of the most unforgiving terrain in the world. The purpose of the hunt was pretty simple: Test gear in the most-rugged conditions available.
For the trip we were outfitted through Cabelaís (www.cabelas.com) for most of our outerwear and optics and were asked to give our opinions about each piece once we returned. The gear held up without a hitch and most impressive to me were the optics.
The scopes and binoculars we used were from the Cabelaís Euro HD line and is possibly some of the best glass Iíve ever had the pleasure of using.
