SEATTLE, Wash. (September 2007) – As a natural extension of its classic fly fishing line, Filson, (booth #901) a leading outfitter for sportsmen, has developed five-layer construction Stocking Foot Waders that will debut at Fly Fishing Retailer this September in Denver, Colorado.

“Filson's 110-year heritage is closely tied to the sport of fly fishing, and the Filson waterproof and breathable waders are a strong addition to our line of fishing gear and apparel,” said Bill Kulczycki, president and CEO of Filson. “Performance and quality are critical to waders and in keeping with Filson's legacy; our waders have been put to the test through two years of development and extensive field testing.”

Filson Stocking Foot Waders, featuring five-layer construction, are breathable and waterproof. Performance elements include gusseted crotch for freedom of movement, outer leg seams for greater durability, an articulated knee, neoprene booties and handwarmer pockets lined with Mackinaw Wool. Classic Filson design elements include bridle leather trim and Filson brass snaps on the mesh front pocket.


“The Filson waders exceeded my expectations of what a breathable wader can achieve while tactical fishing in inhospitable mountain streams. They've created a wader as tough as their trousers,” said Dylan Rothwell, president of Rising. “At first I was surprised that Filson had a wader but recognized the brand's high quality standards right away. My absolute favorite feature is the articulated crotch, as it really allows me to move in an unrestricted manner. I also loved the fleece lined chest pocket for cold days, and the fact that they added zippers on both sides of the interior pocket so it functions well when the waders are worn all the way up or rolled down on hot days. Great attention to detail.”

Among the other items from Filson's fly fishing line that will be available for review at Fly Fishing Retailer are: Feather Cloth Fly Fishing Shirt (long and short sleeved, with UPF sun protection rating of 50+); Cover Cloth Wading Jacket; Foul Weather Fly Fishing Vest; Fly Fishing Strap Vest; and Fishing Waist Pack. In addition, the company will be showing classic Filson hunting apparel and gear and spring '08 sportswear.
