Woolrich and Aimé Leon Dore Release Fly Fishing Inspired Collection

High fashion has once again turned its eyes to fly fishing for inspiration. This time it comes from the US side of the pond from a Queens, NY-based designer and a brand many of you know, Woolrich. The collection is entirely fly fishing focused, in fact, the collection launch video (below) even features the subject whipping up what looks like a presentable elk hair caddis variant.

Both designers describe the collection as, “Drawing inspiration from the heritage and the fishing lifestyle, the collection features a fresh take on classic essentials.” This becomes abundantly apparent as you scroll through the collection. And just like most fly fishing products, most of the collection comes with quite a bit of sticker shock, with the most affordable pieces being two hats.

This collaboration could be regarded as relatively functional if you don’t mind occasionally ruining a pair of $350 zip-off pants when you slip on a muddy bank. Woolrich and ALD even threw a $425 fishing vest into the mix for the purist eager to impress in the fishing access parking lot.

We will admit the collection’s fleece and outerwear do leave us with a little bit of pattern envy…
