New York Times Looks At Women's Fly Fishing Vests

June 5, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

Times writer Sarah Tuff asks Bozeman, Montana fly fisher Anne Johansen to test five different fly fishing vests designed for women. “Nearly 500,000 women fly-fish, according to the Fish and Wildlife Service. While that’s only 16 percent of those practicing long, graceful casts on this country’s rivers, lakes and ocean bays, fly-fishing companies now offer women an alternative to wading in bulky, ill-fitting men’s vests.”
Johansen’s pick? The $170 Patagonia Riverwalker vest, which she described as “not flashy, but technical.”
