Frabill F3 Jacket
3 seasons of winter steelhead fishing which entails crawling through blackberries, making trails through the brush, best cuffs of ANY raingear, 10 hours in the heavy rain and stay completely dry. I wear waders so cannot attest to their bibs. The amazing part is it still looks nearly new and shows zero signs of wear.

Cold, miserable weather in the boat- Stormr Strykr. Great stuff but too warm for beating the brush all day. Pants and jackets both high quality, stay warm and dry all day gear.

Spend the $ for the right gear and it makes the worst weather very easy to tolerate!
Our tradition is that of the first who sneaked away to the creek when tribe did not really need fish

I've got a Frogg Toggs Pilot suit. At 250 ish total, it's a very nice suit. It's a few years old, and I've used in steady rain all day and have walked away mostly dry. A little leakage around my knees when kneeling and culling fish, but overall a great buy.
