Leland on Patagonia
One of the most admired and emulated firms in the outdoor marketplace,
Patagonia is also one of the stalwarts in the fly fishing industry. Yvon
Chouinard, the head of Patagonia, is well known as an alpinist and a
surfer, but is also an avid fly fisherman. Atlantics, cutthroats,
permit: he knows what he likes for fish as well as for gear, and he
maintains a hand in the processes of product design to this day.
Patagonia is a founding partner of '1% for the Planet', a league of
environmentally progressive businesses, and Patagonia demonstrates its
engagement with environmental stewardship in other ways as well. To
minimize the inevitable ecological costs of manufacturing, Patagonia
uses recycled content fabrics where possible and makes products that
will perform at a high level for many seasons of fly fishing without the
need for a replacement.
