Beattie Outdoor Productions crew member (also has his own company and blog -lateral line media) has a sweet ass hoodie out – inspired from a film trip in Washington -I don’t like to post much about merch and whatnot – but sort of cool.

“We had some hooded sweatshirts made for our Steelhead Trip and I have gotten a bunch of interest from folks who have seen them kicking around. Here are a couple pics. It is sasquatch holding a spey rod in the forest on the front, it seemed fitting considering that he lives in the Pacific Northwest, and on the back there is a fish with text that read release wild steelhead. If you would like one shoot us and email with your size and shipping address.”
