Salmon fishing gear, and the gear you’ll need for other species, always include rods and fillet knives. In addition to those, we’ve included some summer footwear and a couple off road vehicles to get you to your favorite fishing spot.
White River Step-Up Fillet (Model Number: WRSUF-GGB)
This hand-finished, full-tang knife is made from precision-ground, heat-treated and cryogenically tempered CPM S35VN. The razor-sharp edge is then leather honed to allow anglers to easily slice through fish with the utmost control and ease. The textured handle creates a strong, positive, no-slip hand purchase in wet and even slimy conditions. The step-up design affords excellent visibility of blade location for precise filleting and also provides extra knuckle clearance for very thin filleting. The blade is 8.13” long and the knife weighs just over 5 ounces. It includes a Kydex sheath. Like all White River Knives, it is 100% made in the USA and guaranteed for life.

Kawasaki KLR 650 Adventure
The staple of affordable on/off-road motorcycles, and the ultimate ride for discovering the path less traveled. Explore the Denali Highway or get to your favorite fishing hole to slay the salmon. Heck, do both! Add on a Frame Slider for the rougher terrain; throw a cooler on the back rack. It features an anti-lock braking system providing the rider reassurance that contributes to a greater riding experience. Packed with a 4-stroke, single-cylinder, DOHC 652 cc engine, the motorcycle features a Uni-Trak single shock with adjustable rebound damping and adjustable spring preload/8.0-inch travel.
Fat Track is the ultimate off-road amphibious vehicle that has the capability of getting you across terrain that few other vehicles can. It is easy to operate, with intuitive, proportional joystick drive, a dash display and automatic drive and terrain modes. It comes with an automatic transmission and offers the ability to drive from the left or the right side.

The name Beckman has been synonymous with quality and durability in the fishing-tackle industry since 1961, long known for the best landing net on the market. Beckman is excited to introduce a new series of fillet knives. These knives feature a 420J2 stainless-steel blade which has a PTFE coating, providing the perfect balance of good edge retention and ease of resharpening, while also having superior corrosion resistance. The handle has an ergonomic design which comfortably fits in your hand. The blade protector is vented to allow any moisture on the blade to dry after use. The 7” model has good flexibility in the blade allowing you to maneuver around rib bones.
