Presented By: Togens Fly Shop, Anglers Coffee, Trxstle, Stonefly Nets


FisheWear founder, Linda Leary, shares how she came up with the idea to create women's fishing wear after she found herself wearing baggy men's clothing while fishing. Linda tells the story of how she used to run a trucking business in Alaska for 30 years - sold the business, started working in the telecom industry, then later decided to go all-in with FisheWear. 

Find out FisheWear's top sellers - how these gear and clothing help women perform better outdoors while still feeling comfortable, and how the XtraTuf boot looks great both inside and out. Linda also shares her upcoming plans for this year with the FisheWear team that we should be excited about!
