Shorts Designed by Anglers… for Anglers

MUSKEGON, Mich. – Recent midwinter-like weather isn’t exactly a calling card to contemplate warm weather fishing wear. We get it. But inline with spring’s eternal unpredictability, you can quickly be on a boat in 85-degree weather. And that marks the beginning of trend toward seasonal summer weather.

Saltwater or freshwater, cornerstone to warm weather fishing is donning shorts specifically designed for the sport. There’s a reason you don’t see frayed jeans-shorts at the gym. They don’t work. Same goes for fishing.

Every stitch and trim of Whitewater Fishing’s new Rapids™ Fishing Shorts represents careful consideration for performance. And that first manifests in the fabric. Whitewater employs a poly/spandex blended fabric that delivers 4-way stretch for maximum mobility while maintaining fit. Next, the premium fabric is treated with Durable Water Repellent (DWR) to battle back the inevitable sprays and splashes of a day on the water. Moreover, Whitewater’s supreme antimicrobial application suppresses that wet funk smell, which is especially important in saltwater environs.

Functional features include three open pockets and two zip-closure pockets to keep your most important items secure. The Rapids Fishing Shorts sport a zip-fly with a button closure, belt loops, and a comfortable 9-inch inseam.

Rapids Fishing Shorts are available in waist-sizes from 30- to 42-inches. Colors include Marine Blue and Beach.
