Snikwah

 

Snikwah has been spreading it’s unmatched product worldwide for quite a while now and I’ve been exposed to their innovation this summer. I’ve been able to wear my Snikwah both fishing and hiking for elk scouting this summer and I can’t express enough how incredibly pleased I am.

 

They’ve taken all the technology in a performance shirt and placed it into one piece of clothing. I got the Women’s Original Snikwah which is comprised of the following features:

- Built in hood (with a pony tail slot for high or low pony tails)

- UPF 50+ for sun protection

- drirelease fabric which pulls moisture away from the fabric and pushes it to the outside away from your skin

- Inspect protection

- lightweight comfort

Hands down, my favorite features is the comfort. It’s absolutely the best fitting non spandex shirt I’ve worn. It’s not spandex so it’s not tight! It has the look and feel of cotton, but it’s drirelease makes it wick moisture rather than store it. It has tapered sleeves and a tapered waist so it still fits me like a girl, but it’s loose and breathable in all the right places, and tight where I need to be so it’s not hanging off of me.

I wore my new Snikwah fishing last weekend which was 90 degrees and humid. I was comfortable in the morning with a little bit of fog and remained comfortable during the day as the sun rose. Through the chaos of landing back to back to back fish, I stayed dry all day and I came home with no sunburn! The fish blood and bait washed out and it didn’t shrink!

I wore it again this weekend for some hiking in preparation of my archery elk season that starts in just 2 weeks. I’m in eastern Washington which is typically very hot, and very dry. We had a storm blow through so we got to experience the heat mixed with rain clouds making it more humid than I’d ever felt in that area. On a normal scouting trip I end up in shorts and a sports bra fighting the woods, dripping in sweat but this weekend I was able to wear my Snikwah all day and didn’t break a sweat! It was a little cooler, but I’ve never come home in dry clothes and NO MOSQUITO BITES!!!!! I typically come home with between 10 and 15 mosquito bites because so much of my skin is exposed.

It’s a reasonable price and they come in over 30 styles and colors. Keep an eye out for some fun stuff coming from Snikwah in October!

Buoy 10 2015

After seeing everyone else catch huge Buoy 10 fish and limits by 8 AM, we finally got to get out of the mountains (elk scouting) and hit the water!

Saturday morning we trolled above the Astoria bridge and got 4/6 of our kings. Once the tide slacked out, we headed down river and fished below the bridge to find 2 more kings and hopefully a few silvers! Since there are so many native silvers and they can’t be retained, we don’t target coho and most of the time, head for the launch after we get our kings. With the water so warm, coho have a very difficult time surviving period let alone after being hooked, landed, netted, de-hooked, and then released. We tend to find wild coho floating down the river because their mortality rate is so high. So, we really just needed 2 more kings and we were done :)

 

It took a few more hours to get those plus a hatchery coho but the weather was great and times were good! We BBQ’d, had a few beers, and even watched the Doc and his daughter go swimming!

We finally got our last 2 fish and hit the launch around 1 PM. Back at it Sunday but this time we were a bit more dialed in! We hooked at least 20 fish by 10 AM and got to be a little bit more picky about which kings we kept and got 6 awesome kings by 9:30 AM. Most of the fish were caught on bait behind a flasher, however, a few on spoons.

We packed up camp headed back home by 11 AM with enough time to hit the Puyallup for a little humpy fishing!
