We bet you use the mesh carrying bag your waders came in all the time to transport your waders to and from your fishing trips. Yep. Right. Ok yeah, so maybe we don’t either. So here are some other good ways to use that mesh bag that your waders came in.
Throw some beers in the bag and hang it in the water while you fish. Just tie that bad boy to a tree, or hang it off the side of the boat and have cold beer all day long.
And here are a few other possible uses…
Throw your lunch in it and keep it separated from the rest of your gear.
Have some trash from lunch or some empties kicking around the bottom of the boat? Throw em’ in the bag and tame that trash until you reach the takeout.
Wader carrying bag
Novel idea but use it to safely transport your waders. Rolling and tucking them into a bag keeps them from snagging on anything in the truck, tidy’s them up and keeps them out of the way. The mesh allows them to dry out too.

First place winnings from the DRYFT Waders Instagram #DRYFTculture contest go to @Rolski_ for his pretty steelface photo.
Runner up goes to @clarissa1639 for her nice ‘humpy season’ submission. Fishing, beer, and bikinis. You can’t really go wrong with that combination.
Like to pack light when you’re out for a day of pounding the banks of your favorite waterway? We like to ditch the packs too, which is why the DRYFT S13 fishing waders come with lots of built in zippered storage pockets.
Sling a bag over your shoulder, wear a chest bag or vest if you like – but if you choose to go light the front zippered pocket, side entry dual purpose ‘hand warming’ pocket, and inside flip out pocket gives you more than enough room to fit a small tackle box, several small fly boxes, a medium sized fly box as well as tippet, pliers, camera, etc…
The inner flip-out pocket has zippers on both sides and is perfectly suited to carrying your keys and phone, and gives easy zippered access from the flip out position or from within the waders. I like this as I don’t have to flip the whole pocket out to dig my phone out. I just unzip the inside zipper, reach down the the inside of the front and I’m into the safe zippered storage.
The fleece lined front pocket, and dual side entry side pockets are easy on the hands and on gear and are more than big enough to haul the essentials around in. Check out the full list of details in the shop >> S13 Waders
The DRYFT waders crew has been out hitting the rivers a few times since they opened a couple weeks ago on the first of June. Targeting summer steelhead, we’ve seen mostly resident rainbows and a few anadromous bull trout. This past week we got out and caught a pretty big incidental bull. Here are some photos.
Feel like enjoying a nice cold 55% alchohol by volume beer served in a dead animal? It will cost you. $765 to be exact.
It may be all sold out now, but if any lingers on the shelves you can choose between a squirrel, weasel and a stoat. Now this is manly.
Life skills worth knowing. And probably worth knowing for Cinco de Mayo…

Here at DRYFT we take R&D seriously. Very seriously…
That’s why we took our time to properly test and evaluate this wheat beer from the Kulshan Brewery in Bellingham, Washington. The verdict? Good stuff from Bellingham’s newest brewery.
