Protection For Your Processor (Brain) & Great Christmas Presents!

Every computer is built around a processor, that enables it to perform all of its functions, including the gathering of memories. So as the processor is most vital instrument of the computer, the brain is the processor vital for a human being. Your brain precesses and stores all of your life's information, making it central to all functions of your mind and body. When the brain ceases to function, all living animals are considered to be clinically dead. Any time your brain is impaired, the functions of oneself suffers with it,... often to dangerous levels that make any recovery impossible.
Your brain is contained inside a protective shell called a skull, that is covered by skin and hair to help regulate temperature. This natural incubator works very efficiently within a fairly narrow band of exterior temperatures and climatic conditions. Without shelter, except for the benefits from an untrimmed amount of natural hair, a human brain can survive for long periods in temperatures ranging from 70-100 degrees. A brain operates best with an internal temperature of 98.6-degrees Fahrenheit.
Small raises or lowering of internal temperature often can lead to adverse effects on the brain. The human brain operates optimally between 98.6 and 100 degrees. Thus, at a core temperature of 95 degrees a human body is regarded as hypothermic. On the other extreme, an internal temperatures of 107.6 can cause stroke, permanent brain damage, and death.
For these reasons, humans have invented all kinds of clothing items to shield the brain, often a protection more important than its main radiator the body from changing climatic conditions. The best portable solutions began to evolve about 50 to 100 thousand years ago. Our ancestors evolved practical portable pieces of insulation to protect themselves from hostile environments they co-existed with. Prime examples are hooded parkas, that evolved in Eskimo communities. Another example is turban type headwear, that evolved in harsh and deadly hot Middle Eastern and Saharan desert communities.
And thus it naturally leads to our modern clothing items a technical extensions of garments, having have spent many years in historical development. One of the newest clothing categories are thin, stretchy fabric tubes that cover the head, neck and face areas to shield these sensitive areas from suns rays, wind, grit, heat and cold. These tubes take the place of previously popular garments, such as scarfs, bandannas, turbans, parkas, etc. The company thatis filling the niche of making these tubes into the practical, and popular fashion statements they have become today is Buff USA. IN fact, it is to the point they have dominated this market to such a degree that all items in this category are simply called buffs. Buffs are extremely popular because they look good and can be adapted to nearly any clothing scheme. Buff's popularity in nearly every outdoor setting, is for these very reasons: because they are incredibly lightweight, portable and practical.
As with every great idea, it didn't take long before it was copied by other enterprising businesses. The best copy of the Buff so far is the Redneck Sun Gaitor by Montana Fly Company. Rednecks are designed with fisher-folks in mind, and feature beautiful graphics created by some of the world's best fly fishing artists, such as: Tim Borski, Jeff Currier, A.D. Maddox, Bern Sundell, Josh Udesen, Travis Syvester, and Bob White. Another plus for every consumer, Rednecks are less expensive than Buffs.
We carry a great selection of both Buffs and Rednecks. Take your pick!

Worldwide, indigenous tribes who live in the hottest climates on Earth, cover their heads when outside, especially during the hottest parts of each day. The human brain operates at peak vitality, at precisely 98.6-degrees Fahrenheit. Even fractional rises in temperature can cause a reduction in efficiency.
The same problems occur when the brain gets too cold. When your core temperature dips, so does your performance. As you get cold your coordination suffers, and so does your decision making process. A reduction in core temperature leads to poor casting and wading skills, which can make you stumbly, and lead to a dunk in the river. Buff type garments help keep you warm. Be safe. Stay covered-up.

Redneck Sun Gaitors From MFC - Are great protection from cold & wind!
Are you a Redneck? Do you work and play in the out of doors? Do your activities require protection from the elements, so that you can be at the peak of your physical & mental games? The latest U.S. military tests reveal that 7%-10% of your total heat loss is though your head. There is even greater heat loss when the wind is blowing into your ears, and of course your neck (where the largest blood vessels are) can also lose immense amount of heat. Insulation around your head, that covers your ears and neck can help prevent hypothermia (a lowering of temperature in your body core). An even more dangerous situation can occur when the temperature is lowered inside your head. All of your motor and reasoning functions can be severely reduced when the temperature of your brain is altered to either above or below the normal 98.6-degrees.
Brain and body functions also suffer if there is a rise in normal temperature inside the core, or skull. Indigenous people living in harsh climates figured out thousands of years ago that there are survival advantages in covering the head, neck and face for protection from heat. Human skin is

Pick yer Pocket Flies - An answer for steelhead during the transition between fall and winter!
Popular Steelhead/Salmon Guide, Brian Kite perfected the Pick 'Yer Pocket series of flies to be a little less intrusive, and a little easier to cast, than the larger Intruder type flies. Pick 'Yer Pockets catch salmon and steelhead under most conditions when these fish are available. They can be the remedy for transition times when really big flies, or smaller flies don't get the job done. One of the reasons why Pick 'Yer Pockets are so productive, is that they are so beautiful as to inspire faith from most anglers. Matter of fact, when you are in doubt, just tie on a Pick 'Yer Pocket and go hunting. Having your fly in the water is the first step. Pick 'Yer Pockets are proven.
