Fly Fishing Gear
Patagonia Men's Gunnison Gorge Wading Pants - Long
When summer heat and icy trout streams come together, imagine fishing all day in your favorite khakis. Only without the soggy feet and goose bumps. That?s the concept behind our Gunnison Gorge Wading Pants ? max comfort in hot-weather/cold-water conditions. Built with our proprietary H2No(R) Performance Standard polyester microfiber fabric with a waterproof/breathable barrier and Deluge(R) DWR (durable water repellent) finish, Gunnisons keep you dry and comfy from the waist down. Out of the water, they look and feel like regular pants, with an elastic-back waistband, self-fabric belt loops and a stretch wading belt with a quick-release DuraFlex(R) Stealth-V buckle for an adjustable fit. Anatomically curved knees and a modified Y-Joint? crotch increase flexibility, while specifically designed right and left neoprene booties keep feet warm and cushioned. Exterior reinforcement tape on the high-wear seams reduces abrasion for bomber durability. And because you?re always just one step away from an unintended swim, the internal waterproof welded TPU utility pocket protects camera, phone or alarm remote. Field repair kit included.

Fishing Vests Checklist
||All Those Pockets! Fishing
vests, rather obviously, are designed to have pockets so an angler
can carry essential gear. However, there are pockets...and there
are not enough/too many pockets. Be sure to get a vest that has both
the size of the pockets you need as well as the right number.
If you're unsure of the number, try this....6-8 relatively small
pockets, 3-4 medium pockets and 2 large pockets. This works for me.
Perhaps it will work for you, too.
||Mesh or Traditional Fabric? This
is total personal preference. I personally prefer mesh vests, as
I find it allows for a bit more movement and because it is slightly
cooler than a pure fabric vest. But really, get what works for you...not
||Comfort, Comfort and More Comfort! One
reason "cheap fishing vests" are cheap is due to lacking any thing
that might be considered "comfortable." Good quality vests now have
"methods" that help distribute the weight of the vest across your
body...not on one slim area around your shoulder. This is important...since
a heavy vest that weights down on one particular spot will start
feeling like a hundred pounds by the end of a long-day fishing.
||You Don't Need Everything! When
you start filling up your fly fishing vest, remember you don't need
to bring everything with you. The fishing vest is designed to carry
stuff you need on the water...not flies or items you only use in
certain circumstances. Thus, when packing your fishing vest, be
sparse in what you carry. By having fewer items, organization is
also far easier.
