Early Bird Sports Expo

Another successful year with the Early Bird Sports Expo at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds.
Several new Trout Unlimited members signed up and many more potential members.
As always it was great fun demonstrating fly tying and giving away flies & stickers to young people.
Special thanks to Loon Outdoors for donating a great stack of stickers to distribute.
Here's a shot of Bear checking out a new member application in our sweet booth.
We truly appreciate the Early Bird Sports Expo for the opportunity to spread the word about cold water conservation.

NRS enters the Wader Game

NRS has long been a go to organization for all things personal watercraft related, e.g. kayaks, rafts, driftboats, catamarans and etc.

Now they are the latest entrant in the wader market with their Sidewinder Waders.

The description:
"Wear the versatile NRS Sidewinder Bibs as a fishing wader, or combine them with a dry top for complete cold-weather immersion protection. An adjustable waistband seals the top, and the waterproof relief zipper is a major upgrade over other dry bibs.
  • 4-layer Eclipse fabric has a proprietary waterproof-breathable barrier and Nanosphere® DWR finish that work together to lock water out while letting moisture escape.
  • The supple polyester microfiber shell allows frictionless movement with superior resistance to puncture and abrasion.
  • We designed the upper for maximum comfort under your PFD, and two side adjustments keep the fit snug to limit water entry.
  • Adjustable hook-and-loop overcuffs protect the Eclipse fabric socks.
  • 2" wide wishbone style suspenders stay in place whether you're seated in the boat or standing.
  • When combined with a double-skirted dry top or paddling jacket, the Sidewinder Bibs give you a versatile dry system comparable to a dry suit.
  • Cinch your inner tunnel in the 4" wide double-pull waist for a dry, waterproof seal.
  • Or, wear as a wader. Tighten the double-pull waist band to limit water entry.
  • TIZIP® MasterSeal relief zipper lets you answer nature's call without stripping off your life jacket and bibs.
  • An additional layer of Eclipse fabric on the seat and legs reinforces high-wear areas."
Lots of premium features with a price point seems to be targeting the mid-range of the market at: $449.95

We'll have to wait and see what actual use reveals as to quality and durability, but with their reputation, I expect good things.
