We placed those items in the hands of our guides to wear, use, cast, fish, abuse and enjoy! Simply put, it’s gear that is WCA Guide Tested.
A passionate outdoorsman and an incredibly talented photographer, WCA Guide Kevin Emery knows the needs and benefits of good gear that is high quality. From his home in the Tetons to his training and work in the South Pole, Kevin understands the value and necessity of versatility in clothing, so the Howler Brothers Pescador Shirt was dead on!
“There’s something that grabs my attention when it comes to a great looking and great feeling pearl snap shirt that has versatility both on and off the water. Howler Brothers hit the nail on the head with their Pescador Shirt. The look and feel of this poly/cotton blend shirt is great, when guiding in the heat of the dog days of summer or kicking back in the cool nights in the Teton Valley. I felt like I could hit the pub or restaurant straight off the water and had no qualms about not changing my shirt. The number one selling factor was when my wife said to me “Damn, that’s a really nice shirt. You should where it more often.” Booyah! I’m gonna be buying more of these Pescador shirts ASAP.
The details in the fit and finish are noteworthy. Hidden pockets under front yokes, Howler monkey icon embroidery on back yoke, pearl snaps, regular Fit, straight hem with side vents, UPF 15 sun protection, vented front and back yokes. Tucked in or untucked, you’ll look like a champ in the Howler Brothers Pescador shirt.”
