Patagonia’s New Fly Fishing Essentials for Fall 2023


This fall, Patagonia Fly Fish is proud to unveil new products, including boots engineered to excel on the trail and in the water, a technical hoody made for layering or as a durable, on-its-own essential, and a line of clever recrafted wader accessories. Learn more about the Forra Wading Boots, Grip Stud Traction Kit, R1® TechFace Fitz Roy Trout Hoody and ReCrafted Wader Accessories below.


Built to traverse the unpredictable approaches and navigate the tricky wading that always guards the finest fishing, Forra Boots are ultralight, remarkably comfortable and—thanks to punishing real-world testing—expedition tough. The Forras (Italian for “canyon”) feature a sturdy foundation, slime-defying sole and all-day support delivering durable, rock-solid footing overland or underwater.

  • Reliable ankle and toe box protection designed for scrambles and boulder-filled wading.
  • Quick-drying, quick-draining, lightweight, hard-wearing CORDURA® mesh uppers bolster stability and deliver a foot-conforming fit.
  • The adjustable lacing system provides a secure, custom closure.

R1® TechFace Fitz Roy Trout Hoody

Engineered to excel as a layering piece and a stand-alone fishing shirt, the R1® TechFace Fitz Roy Trout Hoody is warm, breathable and made for movement. Features include an abrasion and weather-resistant shell, a PFC-free DWR (durable water repellent) finish and an adjustable hood with a laminated visor. With thoughtful details—zippered handwarmer and chest pockets, articulated arms and an adjustable hem—the R1 TechFace is built for on-the-water performance.





After years of hard work, too many waders end up in landfills. At Patagonia, they evolve into our rugged, one-of-a-kind ReCrafted Wader Accessories—Travel Kit, Tote Bag, Wallet and Work Station. Each piece is built from burley, salvaged wader fabrics and has a unique mix of colors, panels and features—no two are exactly the same. Highly durable, water-resistant and imbued with priceless fish mojo, our Recrafted Wader Accessories keep waders working.
