Pacific Fly Group Vest
Al Campbell

It has been about three months or at least two and a half since I wrote anything for this forum. During that short time, I have undergone surgery for a life threatening and nearly always life taking tumor, wilted away in the hospital for a while, and have undergone both types of therapy. I still don't have any proper response from the surgeon on whether I can drive. I hate to think about the hospital bills.

Enough of that. I want to let you in on a great new vest from Pacific Fly Group. Well, I guess it isn't new anymore, but it was when I got it. Anyway, it's a new product, "polyester fleece vest with nylon shell." I wore it to the FAOL Idaho Fish-In and back just before my surgery and I liked it. Let me go into that some more here.

The inside of the vest is a polyester-fleece-type of material. I wore this vest in some ungodly weather and didn't get wet or even slightly damp. It was also very warm in the mornings when I needed it most. In all, it may be the perfect garment for those in-between days.

The outside shell is made of nylon, sewn in and 'weatherproofed.' Remember this isn't an 'all weather' coat, but you can slip it on with the knowledge that unless it turns into a torrent you will be comfortable.

There are two pockets on the outside and two on the inside. There is a string that goes around with loops to allow you to cinch the jacket tight. If you like your gear worn loose, buy it as standard, but if you like it to fit at all snug, buy it a size smaller. Sizing seems to run a little large.

Ask the fly shop you deal with if they carry Pacific Fly Group products. If they don't, ask why not. If they resist the idea, call 1-800-582-5145 for the dealer nearest you. ~ AC
