The fine folks at Howler Brothers are once again looking for two stellar folks to travel all summer and represent not just their brand but also their lifestyle.

The Howler Privateers program is back for 2017! And this year we have even more in store for the lucky winners. Dubbed by many as “the ultimate summer gig”, this endeavor will take you coast to coast, let you fish, swim, surf, hang out with friends new and old, shoot photos and video and fly your Howler flag high. As last year’s Privateers can attest, it is full-time adventure. We are looking for a winning pair to come on board for the Summer as the third annual Howler Privateers. You’ll get to spend some time at Howler HQ in Austin, TX and then set sail in our deluxe Howler van visiting our retailers, running pop up shops, assisting at trade shows and heeding the call at various ports of call. You’ll get paid (a little) and learn (a lot). Half of it is work but you won’t notice because it will all be fun and an adventure.   –

Best of luck to all applicants (and especially dF readers!)

Legendary local guide Alvin Dedeaux of All Water Guides is finally blowing up as both a Howler Bros. ambassador and a key player in the new fly fishing feature from Yeti that will be showing next Monday at the Yeti flagship store here in Austin!

Swing by the newly opened YETI Flagship on South Congress Avenue for a night of cold drinks and fly films. We’ll be premiering our newest YETI Presents film, The Devil’s, and showing some of our classic fly favorites. 

Our friends from Howler Brothers will be onsite with a popup experience and the fellas from All Water Guides will be there with info on their Austin-based guide services. 

To sweeten the deal, buy a YETI Colster and YETI will buy you a beer from the Barrr.  – The Yeti Facebook Page

Keep an eye out for a dude in a fedora (me) that will have a grip of die Fische and Gruene Outfitter stickers to hand out!

This Thanksgiving i’m thankful for many things, and one of them is that there are people and companies like Patagonia out there using their resources to do as much good as possible.

On Black Friday, Patagonia is donating 100% of sales to grassroots organizations working to create positive change for the planet in their own backyards. We’re determined to use every means at our disposal to defend our world’s climate, air, water and soil. In these divisive times, protecting what we all hold in common is more important than ever before.  –

Both their brick and mortar stores (there is one in downtown Austin) and their online store at are taking part so please consider voting for positive change with your dollars, pesos, euros, etc.


I was pretty excited about the release of the new iPhone until i found out it was “kinda water resistant”, now came in black (BORING!), and that they took away the headphone jack.

Then i was bummed.

That was until i opened my email today and read the following (from Howler Bros.)

Howler HQ is moving to another location and we need to clean house before we open our doors! This Thursday, Friday, and Saturday we are offering an assortment of never before worn gear starting at $5 with nothing over $25! Hats, jackets, tees, fleeces, shorts and more! Some classics, some never released items! You won’t know what you will find until you come on down and see for yourself!

This does NOT apply to any online purchases. NO returns NO discounts NO checks!

If you live anywhere near Austin (as mentioned, it’s in person only) and appreciate surfing and flyfishing inspired clothing you are really going to want to be there or this. You can bet that i’ll be one of the first people through the door tomorrow, see you there.
