Swing by the shop this weekend to check out the new Umpqua packs and bags that just arrived - including the Ledges Waist-Pack, the Overlook Chest Pack, the Surveyor Backpack, the Famous Boat Bag and the Deadline Wet/Dry Duffel.
Sometimes it is better just to let our satisfied customers do the talking. We received this email last month about the Simms Rivershed Boot and thought we would share it in case you were trying to make a decision on wading boots for the upcoming season.
"Killed it again this weekend on the Blue River and I have to say I'm ecstatic about those new Rivershed boots! Super easy on and off and the traction with 5 screws in front and 4 in back is absolutely the best I've ever experienced. So much better than my old felt guide boots that I had been hanging onto and also a ton lighter so I feel less tired hiking my aXX around. Went into Cheesman and they were awesome for the long walk and up and down steeps. No issues with them having a little less material on the ankle for support!"

"Her first cast she put the fly right in my cheeck. She thought she was snagged and kept pulling…I was hoping for a long distance release but that didn’t happen. We had a good laugh and I made her take a picture with me with the fly stuck in my face with blood running down my cheek. I told her she just set a new IFGA world record catching a 150lb White Fish on 4x."
