Fish, Bird, Butterfly, Eel

The S'09 World Trout T-Shirt (Men's and Women's) features original artwork by James Prosek printed on a canvas of 100% organic cotton. Five dollars from the sale of each limited edition tee will benefit World Trout, an organization that supports conservation efforts and identifies and protects native fish. The tee's shoulder seams are taped for added durability. Double stitching at sleeves and hem also adds durability plus coverstitching at neck and armholes guarantees a clean finish. It's recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program. Patagonia tees are knitted, dyed, cut, sewn and printed in Southern California. Other shirt details include ringspun yarns for a soft hand, beefy 5.4-oz 100% organic cotton, Made in U.S.A.

In addition to painting, designing World Trout tees, making music and fishing, James just released a new book on Feb. 24th. It's a children's picture book with Simon and Schuster about migration, called Bird, Butterfly, Eel. I trust that this one is a gem.

Nice and simple artwork. An iconic t-shirt.

I'm glad you like it Taco. The artwork was inspired by the Audubon silhouettes. James has done some exhibitions along these lines.

I am waiting for it to be avilible in XL in the blue color. I have last years. Great idea to give back to the fish. I just wish Patagonia would make other gear. Rods, reels, a chestpack version of the packvest. Get to work on that for me Yvon :). I sell your gear at work and really talk up 1%. Thank for all you do. Now come out with my chestpack backpack ;)

Thanks for the World Trout support Jon. I'll try to keep an eye on inventory and let you know if the XL becomes available.

Regarding rod and reel manufacturing, that's beyond our scope right now but I appreciate your confidence in our abilities.

The chest pack adaptation of the Pack Vest has been on the drawing board for a while. Hopefully it'll see the light of day in a future season. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
