Coming Soon to Endless River Adventures – Craghoppers!

Spring is in the air. And if you fish western North Carolina, then you know what that means… The White Bass and Steelhead Trout runs will be coming out of Fontana Lake and into streams like the Tuckaseege and Nantahala. This spectacular annual migration event allows for some of the most exciting fly fishing of the year! In celebration of this event, we are psyched to be announcing the arrival of Craghoppers, our newest fly fishing brand for the Angler’s Loft! Not only is Craghoppers an amazing choice for fly fishing, it offers great pieces for world travel too. Knowing this, I think it is safe to say that Craghoppers will be a must have for our international guides next season!

Being Innovative Is In Their DNA:

Craghoppers was conceived under the most extreme of extreme conditions – on a successful summit of Everest. Based in Manchester, Craghoppers has continued to develop fabrics and clothing inspired by their mountaineering feat – designed to protect customers, whether the conditions are very hot, very cold, wet or buggy out. They are passionate about pushing the boundaries of fabric technology; being innovative is in their DNA. Everything Craghoppers’ does is a result of a shared passion for travel and the outdoors.

NosiLife Angler Shirt

Smart anglers have long recognized the benefits of wearing a NosiLife shirt at the riverbank to help keep the midges at bay. This is why Craghoppers has introduced a shirt that’s specifically designed for fishing aficionados and comes complete with plenty of pockets for essential accessories. Features: 40+ UPF protection, rip-stop  polyester, moisture control, solar collar, cooling collar, drying loops, roll-up sleeves, sunglasses hanger loop, vented back, underarm gusset, 6 pockets, including 1 hidden zipped security.

NosiLife Convertible Trousers

When you’re packing for a trip, less is definitely more. So it makes sense to choose lightweight travel trousers that will not only protect you from marauding mossiers, but will also offer a short-leg option at the flick of a zip. NosiLife convertibles will keep you safe from the sun and offer optimum versatility, whatever the terrain. Features: 40+ UPF protection,100% polyester, moisture control, 9 pockets including mobile phone pocket, drying loops, heel tape and zip-off trousers.
