DRYFT presents – GEARing up [video]

Filmed mostly in 2017, this short video highlights chasing steelhead in the Pacific Northwest. This is GEARing up. #DRYFTculture

Horror on the Kenai

Recently we heard rumors of some half man half wolf beast terrorizing fish with a fly rod up on the Kenai. We investigated and this is what we found…

 

Oh, the horror.

Bunnies and bullies

When fall first hits, before the big rains, the rivers drop low and salmon move their way into the upper reaches. Bull trout follow, and so do we.

 

While getting ready to do the real business of the season, they certainly aren’t past cozying up behind spawning salmon and smacking a big bunny fly or egg sucking leech.

How to use your wader bag as a beer cooler, and other uses for it [video]

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.

Beer cooler
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…

Lunch sack
Throw your lunch in it and keep it separated from the rest of your gear.

Garbage sack
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.

Have another way that you use your wader bag? Scroll down and drop a comment here and let us know.

Winding down

With a last hurrah spring steelhead is going out with a bang. We saw some great fish this winter and spring, but are looking forward to trout, bass, and other warmwater exploits soon.

Stay tuned for product updates soon, along with some new shirt and hat designs for summer.

Steelhead season

Winter steelhead season is in full swing in the PNW, and even though Puget Sound rivers are closed down across Washington state now the opportunities continue throughout the area. From BC to California, March and April hold promise for big hard fighting winter steelhead.

Steelhead season has already been pretty good to us here. A few fish here and through spread thoughout a few fishless days (ok, quite a few fishless days) has been the norm.

We explored some new water.

We swung flies. We fished float rods and spoons too.
