Introducing William Joseph, well known to Fly anglers but many products are great for anglers targeting freshwater and saltwater species


WST Waders: If you've been in waders and have waded in deep water or in a fast moving river, then you'll know how it feels when you are on the edge of getting yourself into trouble. Swamped waders are not just uncomfortable, they are dangerous. Currently anglers will wear a safety belt around the hip of the wader to keep any water from filling but at times that's simply not enough.


Here's the new WST Waders with a built in safety floating bladder


Introducing the William Joseph WST (Wader Safety Technology) waders with a built in bladder. The entire upper section of this new wader has an integrated inflatable bladder. You have two options to inflate: Safe Wading Manual Inflation or Emergency CO2 inflation by pulling the bright orange tab. The WST Waders will retail for $299.95 and comes in sizes - M, L, XL, XXL.

Ripple Series (Mini dry bags): Today one simply can't go fishing without a piece of electronics. There's the digital camera, cell phone, GPS, heck if it isn't electronics maybe you just want to keep your wallet dry. We thought it was cool when Bob Bagby slipped his Apple iPhone into one of the Ripple mini dry bags and showed us how the display was still fully functional by finger through the dry bag. iPhone anglers, this is a must have if you fish in wet conditions and a small investment to protect that little piece of Jobs hardware. Retail price ranges from $6.95 to $14.95 depending on size.
