Howler Brothers Fly Fishing Clothing Review

Over the last few years Howler Brothers has stormed on to the fly fishing apparel scene joining perennial favorites like Simms, Patagonia and Ex Officio as a favorite among anglers for quality performance fly fishing clothing. Rich with technical features and angling specific details, Howler Brothers has separated itself from the pack by designing clothing with a truly unique style that stands out in sea of a plain jane khaki-rich fly fishing shirts, pants, hats and shorts. Let’s face it, a lot of fly fishing clothing lacks a certain amount of fashion sense and Howler Brothers has made it a point to give anglers clothing that performs on the water and looks great out on the town.  Distinctly casual with a mixture of beach and cowboy appeal, Howler Brothers aren’t afraid to add artistically decorated clothing with a unique fly fishing flair.

Howler Brothers, based in Texas  was formed by two good friends who wanted to design active outdoor clothing that was inspired by the good feelings created by having fun doing what you love. Updating historically popular garments with new school style and technical features, Howler Brothers use small batch production and collaborations with artists and craftsmen to create original, alternative offering. Their clothing works on the water, on main street at your favorite watering hole or around the campfire sharing fish stories. Howlers Brothers backs up a rock solid guarantee if anything should fail on any of their garments.
