Keeping a log of your fishing adventures is the best way to keep track of your successes and failures. With time, a glance to the moon phase, tides, and weather can tell you exactly where you need to fish - provided you kept track in the past.  Rite in the Rain makes this even easier with waterproof log books.  Whether you bass fish, stalk reds on in the flats, or throw flies along the banks, Rite in the Rain has a professionally designed fishing log, and paddle logs, just for you.

Rite in the Rain has been around since the 1920s, providing waterproof paper for industries including logging, biology, farming, and more. The 100% recyclable paper features a special waterpoof coating to protect whatever notes you need to keep.  I'm surprised that I just learned about Rite in the Rain at Outdoor Retailer - I grew up right down the road from them. I'm glad the jumped out of their booth at OR and snagged me out of the isle though. I took a look at their papers, and I was impressed.  They even told me a couple good stories about how awesome their waterproof paper is. How good is it?  Lets take a look.

Using a all weather pen, or, as I did, just a regular pencil to keep your notes.  Here's an example of my day at the Oregon Rockfish Classic.  Here you can see in the notes that it includes areas for GPS location, structure type, water depth, and more. I just wrote a general synopsis of a trip out of Depoe Bay, fishing the area right in front of The Hole.

Now, this is what it looks like after getting run through the dishwasher.

As you can see, it certainly works.  While, you're not likely going to be throwing your notebooks through the dishwasher, you certainly can with Rite in the Rain.  It's probably the best way to keep it clean after you get it all slimed up while fishing - or should I say catching?

As you can see, Rite in the Rain is still usable when it's wet as well.  All-weather pens definitely write better when the paper is wet, and, as you can see in the photograph, I was able to write through a large drop of water on the paper. 

Rite in the Rain also makes plain copier paper should you want to print out your own maps, lined notebooks for more lax note taking, and many other products useful to fishermen, and anyone needing waterproof paper.  Find out more about their full line of waterproof paper products at www.RiteInTheRain.com
