    You can take your chances on us having them in stock during the sale or you can come in during the next few days, find your size and let us order a pair.

    Leland.

    Call the shop today at (425) 452-9138. Med King is not the way our waders are sized.

    Thanks,
    Leland.

    Bob,

    Yes, Roger and I will be speaking at 1pm. Also, Steve Rohrbach will be tying some of his awesome epoxy head saltwater flies. If you're in the neighborhood, I could use a dozen Chum Babies.

    Leland.
