Rand's Custom Hats

The Rand family has been making fine quality custom hats in Billings, Montana, for 30 years. They started as a very small custom hat business catering to local cowboys and cowgirls. Since that time, they have grown to be the most respected name in custom-made hats. While they don’t work by the light of an oil lamp, much of the work that goes into creating today’s Rand’s Custom Hat is the same painstaking hand-crafted labor that hat makers used 150 years ago. Rand’s hats are custom made by one person from start to finish. This means your hat is hand made, hand sanded and hand finished. Their hatters take pride in creating your hat to meet your exact specifications. RandHats.com

How to Think Like A Fish

Jeremy Wade has caught an unparalleled array of outsize and outlandish fish from challenging locations all over the world. Many people ask him how they can improve their own fishing results.

Part science, part art and part elusive something else, this, he says, is within every angler's ability to develop. Thoughtful and funny, brimming with wisdom and adventure, here is the book for any angler—novice or old hand—who wants to catch the fish that have so far eluded them. BarnesandNoble.com

New West Knifeworks

The Teton Edge Santoku represents a revolution in the history of blade design. The Edge replaces the traditional santoku “dimples” with an etched semblance of the Teton Mountain range. As with the dimples, the etching helps the blade slice smoothly through food without sticking—but the Teton Edge does it even better. The Teton Edge celebrates the spirit of Jackson Hole, New West Knifeworks' home, both visually and functionally, redefining the cutting edge of peak performance. NewWestKnifeworks.com

Bare Honey

After working in the food and agricultural industry for nearly 20 years, the owners and creators of Bare Honey, Dustin and Grace, have learned a thing or two about taste. Their love for food and the outdoors has led them from the farms they grew up on to the front lines of the most well-known kitchens and bakeries, to the farthest reaches of the globe and back to the fields and orchards of their home state. Not only are these two whipping up the most delicious local honey Minnesota has ever tasted, they also utilize Bare Honey as a platform to raise awareness and funds for the growing needs of our pollinators, all while bringing together other local bee farmers who share the same important mission.
