Andrew Harper's Fly Fishing Packing Essentials

Clearly, fly-fishing gear is largely dependent on the venue and the season. But whenever I embark on a trip there are still some things I seldom go without. Although I have a closet full of modern (chiefly Patagonia) clothing, I am at heart a traditionalist. Which is why I still wear my dark green Barbour "Bedale" waxed fishing jacket whenever I get the chance. Fly-fishing is much better in North America than in the Old World, but if you want to fish in style, then the Scots and the Irish know how things should be done.

Clearly, fly-fishing gear is largely dependent on the venue and the season. But whenever I embark on a trip there are still some things I seldom go without. Although I have a closet full of modern (chiefly Patagonia) clothing, I am at heart a traditionalist. Which is why I still wear my dark green Barbour "Bedale" waxed fishing jacket whenever I get the chance. Fly-fishing is much better in North America than in the Old World, but if you want to fish in style, then the Scots and the Irish know how things should be done. Every fisherman has a favorite 'lucky' sweater and mine is a cream hand-knit Aran. (These were originally made in the Aran Islands, County Galway, with unwashed wool that still contained natural sheep lanolin, making them water-repellent.) My backup is a black-and-white, "lopapeysa" sweater, made from Icelandic sheep's wool and given the island's climate, you can safely assume that the local sheep know a thing or two about insulation. It reminds me of happy times spent on the Thvera-Kjarra river in pursuit of summer salmon. My favorite kind of fly-fishing is "sight fishing," casting in clear water to specific fish that you can actually see. For this, the one indispensible item of equipment is a pair of good polarizing sunglasses. So I never, ever, leave home without my Maui Jim shades (that I bought online from Orvis). My retro obsession continues with a preference for wooden landing nets especially those made in St. Paul, TX by Wachter which are lovely things in themselves, whether you have occasion to use them or not. And the aluminum dry fly boxes from Richard Wheatley, with their tiny compartments, each with a spring loaded lid, also seem to me art objects in a way, independent of their function. There are times when however skillful you are and whatever means you employ you just aren't going to catch anything. This is when my small traveling library comes in handy. Most people agree that the classic of American fly-fishing is "A River Never Sleeps," by Roderick L. Haig-Brown. I also rely on John Gierach's "Trout Bum" and "Another Lousy Day in Paradise." But, if you haven't read it, I recommend "A Jerk on One End Reflections of a Mediocre Fisherman," by Robert Hughes. The author was a fine writer, a distinguished documentary filmmaker, and for more that three decades the art critic of TIME magazine. But he was also a passionate fisherman and wrote about his chosen recreation with characteristic gusto and panache.

Ghurka Features

  • Our Leather

    Ghurka leather is never pretreated to remove any flaws, we must begin by using the most naturally flawless hides available. While we utilize a variety of leather types based on which is best suited to a particular product, the majority of our goods are made from French calfskin. Calfskin has a finer grain and softer feel than traditional cowhide as the younger age of the animal brings less exposure to the harsh elements, the main cause of imperfection. French calfskin in particular is considered the finest in the world due to the fact that farms in France do not use barbed wire, one of the leading causes of mars and scratches. As no two skins are completely alike, each and every handcrafted leather Ghurka product will have an individual character that adds to its unique patina as it ages.

  • The Stitching

    We use an extra-thick spun nylon that should never snap or fray, and all of our craftsmen ensure that each and every piece is stitched to our exacting standards. A careful review of any two parts of a Ghurka leather luggage piece will reveal exactly the same number of stitches per inch, a requirement for anything that leaves our workshop. The placement of these stitches is equally exact, precisely laid out to the millimeter to ensure that every bit of leather is assembled to last a lifetime.

  • The Brass

    Brass is the only metal we've found that offers the strength, durability, and reliability that have become our hallmark. Every single piece of our hardware - from zippers, buckles, and hooks to the smallest of snaps and rivets are made solely from this rugged and beautiful material. A great deal of time and expense has been invested in perfecting our brass zippers. Every single tooth is individually machined and polished to ensure flawless operation after years of continuous use. And since all of our leather briefcase and leather travel bag hardware is solid brass and never plated, it too will develop a unique character and patina as it ages alongside our famous leather.

  • The Process

    Since our founding, Ghurka has set out to manufacture the highest handcrafted leather goods available in the U.S. This has always begun with using only the finest hides in the world. While there are endless varieties of leather available, only a handful pass the rigorous selection process required to bear the Ghurka medallion. Likewise, our signature solid brass hardware and trademark stitching process ensure that our bags deliver an unparalleled owner experience and lifetime of use.
