Mollyjogger

I hope this past storm was the last of it as I, like many of you, are completely over cold, ice and snow. So, as winter eases in ferocity making way for spring, there will be many manly men out there eager to camp, hike, hunt and fish. And before doing so, may I offer a suggestion. Check out Mollyjogger.     

Mollyjogger is an online shop based in the Ozark Mountains in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The name comes via the original Mollyjogger Fishing and Hunting Club from 1890. In keeping with their adventurous spirit, founder and Ozark Mountain native, Rick Stagner curated a shop of provisions to suit the forests, fields and streams that surround him and his family. Above is a floating knife, a basic red knit cap and a plaid blanket- at once practical and stylish. Gotta love that. 

This is a nice group of goods that include waterproof notebooks, wool blankets and some gorgeous handmade paddles. I especially love the Scrimshaw Knife Kit, based on the American art form, scrimshaw, that began in the late 1700's. While the whalers had plenty of free time at sea, they etched drawings into items available like bones and sperm whale teeth. As Americans traveled west, so did this art form, which was adapted to knives and other utility items. This kit allows you to carve your own images or words into a bone handled pocket knife...

These popular Field Notes come in 3 packs labeled as Ales or Lagers. The color of the Lager books are gold (pilsner), brown (bock) and pale yellow (pale lager) while the Ales books are dark brown (stout), warm red (amber ale) and rusty orange (India pale ale). 

Check out Rick's shop to see his ever growing shop of provisions that blends great style and practicality for the modern outdoorsman. And although spring is not here just yet, we can all start thinking about it, planning for it, dreaming about it. C'mon spring, we're waiting for you...
