|Bob's Favorite Tech Shirt
Item # PB102
BOB'S FAVORITE TECH SHIRT I prefer 100% synthetic fabric when fishing warm climates. Body moisture is quickly wicked away from the skin, and the shirt dries fast preventing that "sticky" feeling, and allowing for complete freedom of movement at all times. I designed this shirt with this in mind, as well as the basic performance, convenience and comfort features that we all enjoy. The fabric is 100% polyester nylon with UPF 40+ sun protection. It's lightweight, easy care, quick drying and wrinkle resistant. A fully ventilated back and a mesh interior yolk ensure excellent breathability, moisture transfer, and fantastic comfort. I squared off the bottom of the shirt so that it can be worn in or out (GREAT!). The two large front chest pockets have "VERTICAL" ZIPPER-CLOSURES with easy-grab zipper pull-tabs. YOU'RE GONNA LOVE THIS POCKET DESIGN. They are fast to get in/out of, and offer superior security over any other design I've used. Two accessory loops for hanging a nipper or sun-glasses. Roll-up sleeve tabs convert shirt to half-sleeves if you like. The "HIDDEN" button-down collar prevents "wind flap". THE BEST. And no annoying logos on this shirt. SIZES: M(chest 38-40), L(42-44), XL(46-48), XXL(50-52), XXXL(54-56) in COLORS: (1)Seaweed-Plaid, (2)Bamboo (3)Clearwater-Blue-Plaid, (4)Cane, (5)Lt-Aloe, (6)Weathered-Rust, (7)Oasis-Green-Plaid, (8)Sage.

|Patagonia Rock Grip Aluminum Bar Boot
Item # PT122
NEW! PATAGONIA ROCK GRIP ALUMINUM BAR WADING BOOTS - Developed by Patagonia founder/owner Yvon Chouinard and tested around the world in the most demanding wading conditions. Put the bite on greasy boulders and slime-covered cobbles without chewing up boat floors. Instead of the hard-and-sharp traction principle of carbide studs, these soft, malleable aluminum bars cut through slime yet conform to rock surfaces for superior grip. The aggressive tread pattern and flat bars also hold well in mud, won't carry moisture like felt and take it easy on boats. The result? Max traction for extreme wading conditions and continued invitations to fish with boat-owning friends. A compression-molded EVA midsole and polypropylene insole/shank combo reduce fatigue and help you stay vertical. Heavily padded ankle support and reinforced toebox and heel counter offer comfort and protection in boulder gardens. There's also a full-coverage, glued and stitched rubber rand and abrasion-resistant toe bumper for bomber durability. Synthetic leather uppers and padded nylon/spandex neoprene tongue cradle your feet, dry quickly and stay flexible. Wide last accommodates a neoprene foot wader; sole is designed to hold fin straps. Aluminum bar replacement kit sold separately. MEN'S WHOLE SIZES: 8 - 14
* Multiple aluminum bars mounted on sole provides ultimate traction in extreme wading conditions, and will not damage the interior of boats

Patagonia Founder, adventurer, a environmentalist and innovator Yvon Couinard on the Patagonia Rock Grip Aluminum Bar Boot:
"In late summer 2010 in the same blacksmith shop where we revolutionized the ice crampon for mountaineering, I cobbled together a pair of boots with aluminum bars. The boot has been heavily tested over the last year on the Columbia, Madison, Kispiox, Skeena, Dean, Ponoi and many other rivers that provide challenging wading conditions. Everyone involved in the testing agreed that they would never go back to studs or felt soles, as the aluminum bars offer a level of security that cannot be matched. The testers, myself included, feel naked wading without them."
Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies and Patagonia ambassador on the Patagonia Rock Grip Aluminum Bar Boot:
"I have over 100 days on the water testing Patagonia's new Aluminum Bar technology, fishing in some of the most difficult wading in the lower 48 like the Bear Trap Canyon of the Madison and Box Canyon of the Henry's Fork. I can honestly say that this represents a breakthrough in wading technology. I have been able to wade safely and confidently to areas on the river that I had not previously been able to reach in my 30 years of fishing these home waters. This technology is a game changer."

|Patagonia River Crampons
Item # PT123
PATAGONIA RIVER CRAMPONS After slipping and sliding through yet another slick, cobbled Skeena run, we came home determined to find a better traction solution. Drawing on his mountaineering experience, Yvon Chouinard disappeared into the Tin Shed and went to work. The result? Our new River Crampon, the highest-traction wading device ever built. The secret is in the widely spaced aluminum-bar treads, which are hard enough to cut through algae and slime, yet soft enough to grip the rock itself. The bars are mounted to a fully adjustable stainless steel frame and held in place with an easy-on, easy-off adjustable harness system. The River Crampon fits over any wading boot and comes in two sizes: S/M for size 6 through 9 boots, and L/XL for 10 through 14. While not fly-line friendly, they feature a simple, easily cleaned design and fast-drying materials help stop invasive species transport. U.S. Patent Pending.
