The ultimate pack-down, travel easy, chest-high waders ever made. Period. For the traveling angler who wants to pack light enough to avoid overweight luggage fees, this is the ticket. For the backcountry angler who wants to hike in with waders stuffed in a pack, this is the deal. Granted, they’re so light, your feet sometimes feel like you’re walking in Ziploc bags (you might even size down on your boots) but we tested them hard, and they did not leak. And they are priced very reasonably. $349; Patagonia.com.
TROUT Media, the print/digital/and social media arm of Trout Unlimited, is partnering with Angling Trade Magazine to create insightful, honest, reporting and gear review content in the fly-fishing space. Both entities will be sharing various written reviews and videos on their respective platforms going forward. TU will bring reviews by everyday anglers, for everyday anglers, while Angling Trade will bring insights from professional editors who have been exclusively focused on the North American fly-fishing market for over 15 years. It will be a mix of gear reviews unlike anything produced to date.
