The Great Gear Story

For a fly fisher, awesome gear that keeps you comfortable can keep you on the water to enjoy that incredible fishing day.  For me living on the wet coast, I target the conditions that keep other people at home.  Anadromous species, be they steelhead or trout, move into rivers, become more active, etc when the tap is turned on.  Patagonia has put together a video about people that have used great gear for years, or even decades.

I have some Paddy gear myself that may be in to its second decade.  I can't think of stitching ever coming apart.  The fabric may wear out around the zippers, but the zipper still functions.  Their clothing is awesome.  The Worn Wear story is also pretty cool to check out.
