SEWE 2020 – The Goods

OK, OK, let’s get to the ‘goods’ of SEWE.  Most of you readers have seen the Instagram images of all the stuff you see at SEWE, so I want to focus on some of the really cool and unique things I saw while spending some time in the low country.

First up – Ball and Buck showed off their customized Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler.  This jeep is a true testament to American craftsmanship.  Bird Buggy does the work, turning an old scrambler into something like you’ve never seen.  Add in brass hardware, old school camo, and a totally rebuilt engine, and you are looking at one bad ass ride.  There was a lot of drool all over this bad boy:

And in other Ball and Buck news: their iconic old school camo Blind Bag is back in stock.  This is one of my favorite bags – not just for the field, but for quick weekend trips away or as a general tote bag for bumming around town.  Hurry – they sell out quick.

Another star of Brittlebank was Over Under.  They really pull out all the stops for SEWE.  The Jacksonville, FL based company does a great job of integrating field wear (a.k.a. Lodge Wear) into everyday wear.  Here are some goodies:

Oh, did I mention that they teamed up with Bird Buggy for one of the coolest Scouts you’ve ever seen?  Literally – no stone unturned.  Dog GPS.  Pistol holsters.  Camo seat covers.  Blaze seat tops to mimic the Over Under Field Coat.  Custom scene paint jobs.  It’s incredible:

Their new camo waxed Field Coat is absolutely incredible.  I seriously can’t wait for this bad boy:

The Galliard Center is much more booth-friendly.  A lot of fantastic brands set up shop under a roof and in some conditioned air.  The good folks at Hook & Gaff, Tom Beckbe, Wren & Ivy, Grady Ervin, and a bunch of knife companies set up shop.  Here are some highlights:

One of the best new ‘brands’ I saw was Fishing on Jupiter.  Artist Kyle Brown does a FANTASTIC job:

Much more to come on Kyle and Fishing on Jupiter.

The Orvis artist Tim Johnson was actually working on some cork.  Really cool to see:

Shotguns were a thing:

Russell Moccasin had set up shop, and was absolutely slammed with folks waiting to be fitted the entire time we were there.

The star of the show: their full alligator Zephyr boots.  These are seriously slick…incredible.

I love old books:

…and would love to own all of Havilah Babcock’s books.  I completely whiffed on buying this one “My Health is Better in November”.  I really should have pulled the trigger.

I’m a huge fan of Hook ‘N Hide.  I have a couple of their buckles, but was REALLY excited to see their new hunting dog collection.  Take a look at these bad boys:

The fine folks at Kingfisher Leatherworks showing off their new wine totes.  Totally customizable:

“No Braggin’ til you’re Draggin'”.  Yep:

I wish there was more space to talk about more of the goods I saw.  Every year it seems that everyone is upping their game…I can’t wait to see what sort of heat they bring in 2021.

    A game of merchandise?How to play without using the result?For example, fishing equipment competition, use the fish to get the competition.Commodities should also be diversified, and many brands are needed.For example, maxcatchfishing gear
