Rain, sleet, snow. Say hello to our little friend, the Women’s Primo Rain Jacket.

DRYFT Primo Rain Jacket for women

The Primo Rain Jacket for women excels at keeping you dry on those hardcore bad weather days, and has all of the features and stash pockets you need for a full day on the water. This full length fishing jacket is designed to be worn with chest waders, wading pants, rain pants,  or just by itself.

Constructed of strong yet breathable submersion rated 3 layer nylon fabrics, it is made to keep you dry and comfortable all day and features six large pockets to stash gear, along with water resistant pit zip openings to vent excess heat.

This is a top of the line rain jacket that excels at keeping you dry all day no matter the conditions. Recommended for all uses including with full waders, wading pants, rain pants, or just by itself.

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy this jacket. Which is pretty much the same thing.

Ethan Parsons – Passion for the outdoors

Ethan Parsons, a 19 year old from Idaho living with a rare condition called Chairi Malformation has lost the use of his legs, but not his desire or drive to get outdoors and do what his passion calls him to do.

John at Trsxtle is spearheading an effort to raise awareness, and give Ethan a means to get back outside and do what the loves. Donations from many different sources including a new offroad wheelchair from GRIT Freedom Chairs and many fly fishing accessories are on the way to Ethan now.

If you or someone you know is familiar Ethan’s condition and thinks they may be able to help Ethan with recovery, care, or treatment, please contact John Smigaj at john@trxstle.com – John will put you in touch with Ethan and his Mother, Brenda. We urge you to reach out if you think you or someone you know can help. Please share this incredible story and see if there’s someone out there that might be able to lend a helping hand for Ethan. 

Please read the full story on the Trsxtle.com website, https://www.trxstle.com/blogs/news/perseverance-ethan-parsons , and help find care for this young man in need.

Summer’s last hurrah – trout fishing bonanza

With the warm easy days of summer fading in the rearview mirror, we took time out for a quick trip over the mountains to the dry and fertile area of Eastern Washington for some trout fishing. We met up with Leaf Seaburg of Methow Fishing Adventures, and set off with high expectations. All expectations were exceeded with plenty of fish catching and fun having. Enjoy these photos from this great early fall day on the river.

We woke up early (5:15am!), strapped up our DRYFT Primo Zip front waders, stuffed lunches and drinks into our BKCNTRY packs and headed for the river. Fishing didn’t slow up all day- with solid takes on dries and streamers keeping the action moving quickly from first light well into the afternoon.
