I have spent the past 24 years serving as a law enforcement officer. When I do get a chance to take some time off, I find my most memorable experiences are times afield or fly fishing; away from traffic, phones and deadlines. My year is spent upland bird hunting in the Fall and Winter with a springer spaniel and casting a fly in the Spring and Summer, and the Fall if it doesn't interfere with upland bird hunting. I enjoy seeing new land and water and have come to rely on quality gear. These Filson chaps are my second pair over many years of upland bird hunting in South Dakota, Kansas, North Dakota, and Pennsylvania. They are great at keeping me dry and warm and get butter soft over time. I highly recommend these. You won't be disappointed. Each sportsman has only so many opening days and days when the "hatch is on."  Enjoy every second of it with family and close friends. The time to live is now.
