Make Mine a Double

Words by Judith O’Keefe Photos courtesy of Burkheimer Rods I love casting a fly rod. That used to be all I’d have to say.  It was generally assumed I was referring to my single hand rod, and I was.  I learned to fly fish on the Deschutes River, casting a sink-tip fly line as far as I could, hoping to…

Why Bridle Leather?

  Bridle Leather:  We choose to use the highest quality bridle leather. It’s finished and smooth on both sides, as it must be comfortable next to the horse’s face. It’s subject to high loads and twisting, so it’s incredibly strong. It’s out in the weather for years, and it’s proven to stand up to the elements. It has character and…

Filson Engagement 03

Words and Photos by Rhon Bell of Backwoods Plaid A smile spread quickly across her face on Christmas morning as she ripped the tape from the top of the cardboard box and pulled out a green-checkered Alaskan Guide Shirt.

1920s Vintage Mackinaw Cruiser

This 1920’s era Mackinaw Cruiser, crafted in a classic green and black check pattern, was returned to our Seattle store yesterday.  After living a colorful history spanning multiple generations, numerous successful pheasant hunts, and years of treacherous winter weather this 100% virgin wool jacket still looks incredible.  The slight frays on the cuffs, minimal discoloration, and a label worn threadbare…
