A special announcement from our newest sponsor, Korkers:





Portland, OR – (February 27, 2017) – Slide In. Tighten Up. HatchBack™. Korkers releases it’s highly anticipated new boot system to specialty fly fishing retailers worldwide beginning February 27, 2017. Built on the foundation of their proprietary adaptable traction technology, OmniTrax™ Interchangeable Outsole System, Korkers’ HatchBack™ breaks new ground as the world’s first rear-entry wading boot system. The boot design was inspired by what anglers want most: sure-footed performance and extreme comfort. The rear-entry BOA®-assisted closure system makes slipping into this boot buttery smooth and incredibly easy. Korkers’ dynamic Flow Foam Fit System™ provides a positive fit that keeps your toes controlled but allows for articulation and range of motion. This feature-packed boot also incorporates Korkers’ hallmark Internal Drainage System™ in the midsole for rapid drainage of excess water and weight, as well as a protective features such as TPU guards at the toe, calf, and shin. Continuing with recent durability enhancements, the HatchBack™ offers clean lines with Protected Stitching™ that is recessed into molded grooves to reduce abrasion and wear.

“We debuted the HatchBack™ to the fishing trade at ICAST and the response from both retailers and consumers has been overwhelming” says Korkers CEO Brian Chaney. “We have been fielding a high volume of calls every week from consumers who are anxiously waiting for the HatchBack™ to hit retail shelves, and many of our retail partners have reported they have pre-sold over a half dozen pairs. Get down to your favorite local shop and try on a pair before they are gone,” Chaney added.
The HatchBack™ is being sold exclusively through specialty fishing retailers only beginning March 1, 2017. The HatchBack™ will be offered in sizes 7-15 and comes in two different sole package options: Black Felt and Kling-On ($239.99 MSRP) and Kling-On and Studded Kling-On ($259.99).
