I Freakin Love This Place! A Much Needed Evening Of Fishing To Some Hungry Shoalies! Found Them On Both Streamers And Then Dries During The Final 30 Minutes Of Light As They Crushed Big Mayflies. Ridiculously Awesome!

I can’t lie: when I first saw @patagonia s new Middle Fork wader, I thought it had “cheap” written all over it. That’s because the bootie’s rubberish appearance harkens to earlier times when we wore plastic Red Balls that failed after two days in the drink and sent us home from our favorite steelhead waters soaked to the knees and chilled to the bone. But I had a frank discussion with Bart Bonime, Patagonia’s Fishing Director, and he said I need not worry. Despite their appearance, these booties are tough, as Bonime demonstrated when he grabbed two fistfuls of a bootie and pulled as hard as he could in opposite directions. The result? A big stretch, but no tears. “It’s super strong,” Bonime said. “You can’t wreck it.” And what is the magic potion that makes it so strong? Can’t tell you. Proprietary, Bonime said. Time will tell, but my eyes don’t lie. So, if the bootie is as durable as it appears, and helps shave weight from PG’s traditional waders, you’ll love these waders, especially for travel and when hiking into remote waters (i.e. mountain lakes and roadless sections of non-navigable waters where the fish are dumb and the rewords are great). The new Middle Forks pack down in an 8” x 13” stuff sack and weigh a paltry 1 pound 10 ounces. The uppers are built with 3-layer nylon material and the lowers offer a more durable four-layer polyester approach. These waders are all made with single-seam construction. Again, if these prove to be as durable as billed, you’ll want them for travel and when hiking into your favorite backcountry waters. ⛰🌊🎣
