New product

Simms Softshell Hoody
We've just received a new jacket from Simms. While very pricey at $219.95, this jacket is a great layering garment and many of the Delta striper guys coming into the shop feel that this will be the perfect jacket for those chilly, foggy days on our Delta. Since it is windproof, you will block the wind on those boat rides looking for stripers. Wearing this over layers of thermals and fleece or down you will very comfortable and dry. This jacket has very breathable Gore-tex membrane. It is not a waterproof rain jacket due to the fact that the seams are not sealed.
  • Soft yet rugged stretch nylon shell with soft and very warm microcheck backer
  • YKK® center-front zipper
  • Adjustable storm hood fits comfortably around a ball cap
  • 1 Large zippered chest pocket
  • Zippered, polyester mesh-lined hand warmer pockets
  • Adjustable cuffs
  • Adjustable shock cord hem
  • Imported

New DVD's

I have just received two great, new DVD's at the shop; " Drift: The Movie " and " Raising the Ghost ".

Above is the trailer for " Drift: The Movie " a very professionally produced video with some great music. I think it does a great job of capturing the joy and beauty that we seek ( and sometimes find ) in our pursuit of fish.

Above is the trailer for " Raising the Ghost ". These anglers are in pursuit of what some call the ultimate freshwater gamefish, steelhead! Steelhead are some of the most difficult of gamefish to catch, partly due to their rarity, partly due to encountering the proper conditions, and partly due to the fact that they are not actively feeding when they return on their spawning run. To make things more difficult, these anglers are trying to catch these steelhead on dry flies. They also encounter steelhead feeding on Green Drakes!
