AFTCO Hydronaut Waterproof Jacket & Bibs

We here in Florida just got our first blast of “cold” weather, but much of the rest of the country has already been plunged into colder temperatures.  That doesn’t mean we have to stop fishing, it only means that keeping warm and dry is essential to our enjoyment of fishing!  AFTCO‘s products are created by real fishermen who understand how brutal the elements can be on anglers.
