Carplandia is a short story about carp and smallmouth bass fly fishing on the dry side of Washington state. Stalking the flats and fishing from sunken roads cutting through the middle of bays is a unique experience. Check out Carplandia from Waist Deep Media.
We are temporarily out of stock of many of our products and sizes, including the popular Session wading pants, Primo Zip Front and S14 waders. Our current low stock situation is due to production delays stemming from shortages of key materials, and pandemic related supply/demand issues. A combination of stressed supply chains and unprecedented demand caused us to sell out faster than anticipated early this spring, and then we got hit with production delays as well.
The good news is that we’re finishing up production now, and are expecting to have all sizes back in stock around the middle of June 2021.
If you’d like to sign up for stock notifications for any product you can enter your email address for alerts on each individual product page.
Any item that is available to add to cart and purchase is in stock and will ship right away.
We can’t thank you enough for your patience and support through this time.

Steelhead fishing in the PNW is a lifetime pursuit. Swinging flies for steelhead is another endeavour entirely. Conditions rarely line up to film this type of unlikely connection from the air. After all, drones are noisy and who wants to take the blame for spooking the run with that jazz?
But if you are prepared and patient sometimes the cosmos throws you a bone and a magic moment is immortalized in a way once only pictured in our dreams.
Friendships forged on the river seem to stand the tests of time. This story is no different. Three people, three friendships born out of the same waters and one fish that gave her all.
A surprise season that rewarded the patient and an example of compromise between anglers and organizations in a movement towards a sustainable future,
Thank you anglers, let’s continue to work together for the future of our fisheries united.

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

Very entertaining short edit out of WA state from Mark Steudel (Mark Steudel Fly Fishing Stories on Youtube and @msteudel on Instagram). Highlights are from a quick trip with Leaf Seaburg of Methow Fishing Adventures. Eats on dries. #flyfishing #DRYFTculture
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 firstname.lastname@example.org – 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.
