Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays to all of our customers, readers, friends and families!

Fishing in December - Happy Holidays

We’ve been hunkering down a bit lately, due to inventory shortages, but will be introducing some more shirts, hats, and new waterproof products in 2014.  Long lead times, factory backups, and high sales demand put us out of stock on most sizes and way behind on getting the most popular sizes back in. Look for new shirts and hats in January, and waders and more coming in March/April.

A huge thank you to everyone for your patronage, and for following DRYFT Fishing gear as we continue to grow and expand. Happy Holidays to all!

Psssst, S13 CHSR Large-Long and Extra-Large are still in stock. So for all you big guys out there, take a peek as they are on sale for $179 until we get more sizes back in stock.

Musky fishing – 5 Steps to Addiction

Musky fishing  agenda, Step 1: learn how to cast the size huge flies needed to successfully catch a musky. Outcome: Fail.

Paying the price in blood.

Step 2: After paying the price in blood, this low 30″ fish came out to play. Small for a musky, but still a big mean looking fish. Keep your hands away from those jaws. Outcome: Great Success! Big thanks to the Warmwater Rambler guide service for putting us on the fish.

Small by Musky standards, bit by most anything else.

Step 3: Lose a monsterous beast with a gaping maw like an alligator. This is what the angler and the guide look like after losing a possibly 50″ fish. How was it lost? The beast bit straight through 80 pound flourocarbon. Sounds hard to believe, but it happened.

Step 5: On day 2, get on the water at 5:30am and touch nary a fish all day. That’s Musky fishing.  Musky fishing is hard. There is no other way to put it. And now we see how the addiction begins – always looking for that bigger, better fish.




Look at those teeth.

DRYFT Waders review – Fly product review on TLTFF blog

Check out this new DRYFT Waders review of our S13 Adrenaline waders on the TLTFF blog. Read the full review here.

…I have fished these waders for 4 months and have been completely satisfied with the results.  I have taken a few spills on rocks, and they have held up nicely.  The true fit of the Adrenaline waders makes the time in the water easy.  There is minimal “ballooning” in the legs because of the contoured fit while still allowing for free range of motion and movement.  The suspender system fits comfortably, and when properly adjusted, allows the top of the waders to sit high on your torso…
