Boa is great, especially if you only fish several times a year. If you’re whacking out 100 river days a year or more, if you hike a lot, travel a lot, and especially if you are hard on your gear, I’d suggest you take a pass on Boa. And that’s the honest truth after playing with this stuff for a few years.
