Tony Puccio - Making the Most of Your Outdoor Time
Today, outdoor enthusiasts have access to many products that can enhance our precious recreation time.
While there are many products that make this claim, three I have tested definitely do the job. These include the Aqua-Vu
underwater video viewing system, Husky Liners, and Super Lube multi-purpose lubricant with Teflon.
As a serious outdoorsman, a professional fisherman, and an educator, I am always looking for the best things for taking
care of my equipment and making my time more successful both on and off the water. Recently I found a lubricant that is
clean, prevents corrosion, and serves endless purposes. Super Lube will lubricate reels, the zipper on a rain suit,
boat motors, hinges, virtually anything that requires lubrication. You can pack your trailer bearings with it. The
Teflon actually gets impregnated into the metal, so you use less grease and have better protection on down the road.
Your equipment will run more smoothly and it will last longer.
Super Lube is not an oil. It's actually Teflon. It is non-toxic, does not stain, and has no effect on rubber, plastic
or wood. You can wipe it off your hands with a rag and it will not leave an oily residue. It will not run or drip, and
is impervious to saltwater. Extreme temperatures will not affect it.
One of the greatest problems outdoor folks have with lubricants is that most have strong odors, yet you must use them.
Super Lube has no odor. Hunters should really like that, especially bowhunters. It will not leave odors on your fishing
lures. This product will help maintain your equipment and make you more efficient in the field.
Every angler must have wondered what it looks like underwater where the fish live. Aqua-Vu actually allows us to do it.
You can see what those images on your sonar screen actually look like. It may not catch fish, but it will surely show you
what kind of fish are under your boat. If you are marking fish, you simply drop this camera down and it shows you what kind
of fish are there. If it's carp you move on. Aqua-Vu will teach you how to interpret your sonar. And it saves time.
The Aqua-Vu underwater video viewing system consists of state-of-the-art components made for ultra-low-light underwater
performance. A black & white camera is attached to 75 feet of power cable. You watch on a five-inch monitor which is built
into an impact-resistant carrying case that is about the size of a large tackle box. This system also includes a rechargeable
battery, battery chargers, a cigarette lighter power adapter and ballast weights for the camera.
The camera is 40 times more sensitive than conventional color cameras. When that is still not enough, it has a built-in
ultraviolet light. This can be turned on by remote control whenever you need it.
This unit is designed for anglers who want to make 100 percent use of their time. And it can be used for other things.
A bowhunter can use it to watch a trail that is blocked from view. A birdwatcher can actually film birds hatching in a nest.
It comes with 75 feet of cable, but it can be special ordered with as much cable as you want.
How many of us scrounge for carpets to protect the floors of our sport utility vehicles? Husky Liners has solved this problem
with a series of soft, heavy duty plastic floor liners made from engineering resin that is light, yet tough and durable.
They are custom fitted so they stay put, they will not slide around. Black, gray or tan colors will coordinate with any vehicle interior.
One of the things I like best about these liners is the lip. If you spill something, say your minnow bucket or a cup
of coffee, everything stays on the liner. The carpet is protected. It will stay like new forever. With the expense of
vehicles today, this is really important. It's a time saving thing and a money saving thing because your vehicle is going
to have better resale value.
Think about the unpleasant odors you avoid. When you spill things on the carpet it will never really be fresh again
without an expensive professional cleaning. Husky Floor Liners can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth or sponge. If
necessary, a mild cleaner can be used. Or if it gets really dirty, maybe you hauled your trophy buck and blood ran onto
the liner, you can take it out, hose it off, and shove it right back in.
These are the kinds of things I look for, things that save time and save money, things that make my time in the field
more pleasant and more productive.
