“Something within fishermen tries to make fishing into a world perfect and apart—I don’t know what it is or where, because sometimes it is in my arms and sometimes in my throat and sometimes nowhere in particular except someplace deep.”
–Norman MacLean, A River Runs Thru It


About 20 years back, I spent a day with a fly rod maker as he crafted a length of Tonkin cane into a lithe and sturdy bamboo rod. (You can learn how to do this yourself, but be prepared to give up a few good months when you could have been wetting a 3-weight in a freestone Montana stream.)

The next morning, we cast into the Gallatin. That timeless one-two rhythm and the attending pulse and breath and motion.

He didn’t try to bamboozle the browns with a dozen different flies. Kept it simple.

We did well that day.


Madison River Fishing Jacket (No. J8158). A faithful reproduction of a rare 1940s fishing jacket in sturdy, water-resistant, and dense 100% cotton micro canvas with an easygoing sandwash finish. Corozo buttons at center front and pockets. Metal domed lapel snaps. Outfitted with cooling underarm grommets, small-gauge zippers, and chain pulls on zippered front pockets. Drawcord waist with leather keepers. Plenty of external gusseted patch pockets (six at front and one large back game pocket), as well as two zippered front pockets to ensure you have room for everything. Corduroy collar. Adjustable cuffs.

Perfect as a travel jacket, too. Good for whatever it is that takes you out on the river or to another hemisphere. Imported.
