Leland's Nature Boy Hatch Patch - Review

                                 Hatch Patch by Nature Boy Designs:Purchase here



April 18, 2014 (Sonoma, CA)Leland and Nature Boy Designs makes fly fishing even better. Introducing the patent pending, Hatch Patch. Now you've got your favorite flies within easy reach...always.


*Each Hatch Patch is handcrafted by Nature Boy Designs

*Fits most every baseball style cap - Curved or Flat Bill

*Patent Pending

*Made in the USA



Let's Face It...Although we fly anglers carry many flies with us on any given fishing trip, we commonly only use a few of our favorite patterns, or at least the ones that seem to be working. Why then do we continually dig through our vests, packs and boxes each time we need a fly? With the Hatch Patch from Nature Boy Designs, your favorite flies are within easy reach...all day.


Wool Is For Sheep...Most of us have tried the old wool fly patch only to find that your favorite fly falls out (lost forever) as you didn't secure it properly. Just as annoying, sometimes you need a blow torch and pliers to attempt to remove your fly from this wooly burden. Not with the Hatch Patch, your flies will stay right where you put them and can easily be removed when needed.


Your Favorite Hat...Sure, some of us just poke our fly hooks right into the core material of our favorite ball cap. A few outcomes...this hat is now and forever only a fishing hat, or you just ruined your best lid. With Nature Boy Design's Hatch Patch, you can add more fly storage real estate to your already fly festooned ball cap, or you keep your best cap clean and ready for a day at the ball park.


Pez Dispenser...If you fish with younger or newer fly anglers, you're probably growing tired of being the official fly dispenser. You know the drill, your little angler just lost another fly on a back cast and you're now winding your way back to tie on yet another fly. Not with the Hatch Patch. Just rack a few top producing flies on your kid's lid and teach them a knot. Now they can replace their own flies. Easy!


On The Go...Whether chasing trout or walking the flats, sometimes it's more fun to go light and leave the clutter at camp or in the boat. With the Hatch Patch, you've got the necessary flies for a quick attack. Just pack a spool of tippet in your pocket and get at it. Lose a fly? Not a problem, lift your lid and you've got your favorite patterns right where you need them. It's also great for the evening hatch.


Pro Review - Leland's Burke White

What's in a Name? The term fly fishing more than likely involves flies. Most fly anglers have a box or two (or more) stuffed with all the variable patterns that might be useful during a day on the water. However, most of us only use several flies during our fishing session. That's exactly why Nature Boy Designs created the patented Hatch Patch.

Rather than continually reaching in your vest or pack to pull out a fly box to change a fly, you can now load up your Hatch Patch with the right flies for the day and have quick access to them whenever the need arrises. Better yet, previously fished flies will dry out in the sun's warming rays as they hold fast to your Hatch Patch...no more rusted hooks in a moldy box.


Just slip the your Hatch Patch onto the brim of your favorite ball cap (most of us wear a ball cap) and the smartly designed clip will hold tight all day long. Better yet, your Hatch Patch won't ruin your hat at all. No more fly hooks in your favorite hat, no more pins stuck through your hat's bill. You can simply remove the Hatch Patch after your time on the water, so you won't look like a drop out.
