Do you love your Patagonia Nano Puff? The Nano Puff is an incredible insulation piece that many of us in fly fishing have fallen in love with. But let’s admit it, the Nano wasn’t designed with the bushwhacking fly fisher in mind. Patagonia has upped their game with a Nano style jacket designed specifically for Pacific Northwest style fishing!
In fact, I was able to get my hands on an early production hoody last winter and it was a fish magnet on its first trip (pictured right). It’s quickly becoming one of my favorite pieces of winter fishing gear!
From Patagonia: Hoofing it, single spey or double hauling—chasing fish is a mix of moving fast and standing still. That’s why we built the Tough Puff with stretchy and breathable insulation to keep you comfortable across a wide range of temperatures, and gave it a durable, stretch-woven face that stands up to snags and tangled cover on the approach. The DWR finish handles spray, spit and drizzle, and helps the cuffs shed water after you’ve dunked ‘em in for the release. Worn on its own or layered under a wading jacket, the fish-specific Tough Puff sets new standards for function and performance—no matter what challenge the day may bring.
