Sight Line Provisions produces some of the most unique and and finely crafted outdoor accessories available today, cuffs that fit on your wrists and your Yeti. The products are true artistry, ranging from just about any fish species you could imagine to "Land and Air" and other "Outdoor Elements."
I first found out about this company while scrolling through Instagram when we were driving back from Colorado, probably through Kansas, and I was bored out of my mind. Soon after, probably by the time we reached Missouri, I had come to the conclusion that I simply could not live without The Dry Fly cuff and ordered it.
I'm certain that the excitement of knowing that cuff would be in my mailbox on Monday was one of the few things that kept me from turning the car around and returning to Durango.
In addition to individually hand crafting these leatherwear's, in Texas, the company also caught my eye because of their outreach within the fly fishing community.
They've produced a one of a kind pink dry fly cuff for Casting for Recovery.
An awesome set of Grayling Cuffs made the journey to the Arctic with the Soul River Runs Deep participants.
SLP has also been a voice for the environment, speaking out and asking people to join in this years People's Climate March.
So, if you've never heard of SLP or been to their site, I urge you to do so.
A really cool company making some really cool stuff.

It happened I couldn't find in all my books
more than a picture and a few words concerning
the trout lily,
so I shut my eyes.
And let the darkness come in
and roll my back.
The old creek
began to sing in my ears
as it rolled along, like the hair of spring,
and the young girl I used to be
heard it also,
as she came swinging into the woods,
taunt from everything as usual
except the clear globe of the day, and its
Then she stopped,
where the first trout lilies of the year
had sprung from the ground
with their spotted bodies
and their six-antlered bright faces,
and their many red tongues.
If she spoke to them, I don't remember what she said,
and if they kindly answered, it's a gift that can't be broken
by giving it away.
All I know is, there was a light that lingered, for hours,
under her eyelids-that made a difference
when she went back to a difficult house, at the end of the day.
