Patagonia’s Latest Fly Fishing Essentials


New for Fall 2022, Patagonia is proud to introduce the Swiftcurrent™ Wading Jacket and Black Hole® Rod Case.

 Built with 100% recycled NetPlus® material made from reclaimed fishing nets, the Patagonia Swiftcurrent™ Wading Jacket is engineered to work efficiently through nature’s most unpredictable changes.

“When we announced in September that we’d be donating all our profits back to the Earth, it demonstrated the deep commitment this company has always had to wild fish,” said Patagonia Fly Fishing’s head of marketing, Matt Millette. “Delivering the Swiftcurrent Wading Jacket underscores that commitment. We’re proud of every component of this jacket – from the materials to the features to how it works on the water and, most importantly, how it works for wild fish.”

In addition, the Black Hole® Rod Case delivers customizable gear storage and industry-first recycled TPU, providing the same legendary Black Hole® toughness using materials that would otherwise go to waste.

Last year, Patagonia granted more than $1,265,000 to groups protecting wild fish and clean water. These organizations reconnect our rivers, oppose the wasteful futility of hatcheries and deadbeat dams and fight the open net-pen salmon farming disaster. Our rivers, oceans and fish were born wild. We vow to keep them that way.


Built with Bureo’s NetPlus® material, a 100% recycled nylon made from reclaimed fishing nets, the Swiftcurrent Wading Jacket is engineered to cast freely, eliminate line snag and keep water where it belongs—in the river.

Recycled Materials

4-layer H2No® Performance Standard 100% recycled nylon shell with a 15-denier circular-knit slick jersey backer for added comfort and performance, a waterproof/breathable barrier and a PFC-free DWR finish (durable water repellent coating that does not contain perfluorinated chemicals). Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.

Adjustable Drop Hood

Easily adjustable, vented hood and integrated collar provide maximum protection in heavy weather and high winds; hood is designed to accommodate all headwear and can be dropped independently from collar.

Watertight Cuffs

Adjustable, watertight cuffs keep arms dry when releasing fish; recessed design eliminates line snag.


Two low-profile, front-zip pockets fit fly boxes; zippered handwarmer pockets are positioned for deep wading and feature flap covers for back-of-hand comfort.


Travel can be tough on fly rods. Our new Black Hole® Rod Case is built from sturdy 100% recycled fabric coated with a recycled TPU laminate to withstand the roughest trips to and from the water and has adjustable internal storage to keep everything organized along the way. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.

Weather-Ready Recycled Materials

100% recycled TPU laminate delivers the same legendary weather- and abrasion-resistance you’ve come to expect from Black Hole® but allows us to reduce our carbon emissions in manufacturing by 89% compared to virgin TPU. It’s the latest step in Patagonia’s path to using 100% recycled raw materials across our entire line.

Customizable Organization

Modular internal storage dividers and two external pockets let you customize your organization both inside and out.

Versatile Rod Storage

36″ (91cm) internal length, big enough to fit four-piece rods up to 11′ (3.35m).

Travel-Friendly Carrying

Adjustable shoulder strap and a grab handle that can be slipped over the handle of rolling luggage for easier movement through airports.
