Meet the DeFrates: Casey (Dad) and Lindsay (Mom) are two thirty-somethings attempting to seamlessly blend their dirtbag-pasts with their river-loving-family present. Their three kids: Hunter (6), Malcolm (3), and Cady (21 months) love to be outside, mostly listen on the river, meltdown occasionally, but noticeably grow with each trip. Casey and Lindsay have hundreds of river trips under their belts as former guides, but they don’t teach you how to handle three toddlers in guide school.

In a family edition of #TipsyThursday, this season, Lindsay plans to share it all and she starts with the first float of the season: an overnighter on the Moab Daily section of the Colorado River.

Sunny Stroeer loves a lot of things, but stand up paddling and the desert are at the top of her list. With two previous SUP trips on Lake Powell, Sunny takes a different approach for number three. Convincing her husband to play the role of Pack Animal, she and a close friend hike in via Coyote Gulch, rig their boards for three days of adventure and kiss the mule goodbye.

The Wild Olympics Wilderness and Wild and Scenic Rivers Act would permanently protect more than 126,500 acres of Olympic National Forest as wilderness along with 19 rivers and their major tributaries, a total of 464 river miles, as Wild and Scenic Rivers. Designed through extensive community input to protect ancient forests, clean water and salmon streams, as well as enhance outdoor recreation, the legislation would set aside the first new wilderness in the Olympic National Forest in nearly three decades and the first-ever protected Wild and Scenic rivers on the Olympic Peninsula.

Check out the Olympic Peninsula through the eyes of #NRSAmbassadors Adam and Susan Elliott as they connect with locals to explore and experience this important place.

Class V Fly Fishing is a film with soul where two seemingly opposite passions—fly fishing and class V kayaking—come together as Parker, Brendan Wells, Todd Wells and Maranda Stopol explore the rivers of the Bristol Bay area where salmon and trout have evolved to migrate through the same big whitewater these paddlers are searching for.

“We’re after that adventure. We’re after that place that isn’t on the map.”

Fascinated by the legends of Bristol Bay that claim there are “so many fish you can walk across their backs,” four kayakers set out to find fishing holes that can only be accessed by paddling remote class v rivers.

Class V Fly Fishing drops Tuesday. In the meantime, catch up on the first two episodes in the Flowstate series: http://bit.ly/nrsflowstate

So, you got yourself a river permit. Maybe you were one of the chosen few to receive a ‘congratulations’ in the mail, or maybe, like the rest of us, you refreshed your browser 605 times and snagged a cancellation. Either way, you have access to a great time on the river and about twenty-five new best friends.

Lindsay's quick-and-dirty guide will help you navigate the twisted path of planning, prepping and pulling off a successful river trip as the T.L. #TipsyThursday

Tradition + progression. 👧 🚣 💪

Only 20 years ago Camp Keewaydin first allowed girls to join canoe trips. Now, 10 young women will embark on a seven-week canoe expedition into the Canadian wilderness. They’ll trade their cell phones for paddles and bug nets as award-winning director Hannah Maia captures their story of old-fashioned strength and resilience in a brave new world.

NRS is proud to support this project with gear and funding, but the team needs a little extra push to see the journey through. Please, check out their Kickstarter and kick in a donation if you can. If we say so ourselves, there are some pretty sweet perks going on for pledges.

Company overview
What draws us to water is what drives us at NRS. Dedicated to providing the equipment, expertise and inspiration that empowers adventure on the water.
Mission
NRS was founded on the idea that a positive approach to business could enhance the lives of its community of stakeholders while outperforming the cynical and exploitative practices of many conventional companies. This basic principle guides every aspect of our business, from product development to marketing to sales. Everything we do, and every decision we make, is focused on creating value for our customers, business partners and communities.

Since manufacturing the first purpose-built dry bag for boaters back in 1974, the NRS name has stood for rugged, reliable equipment built to the standards of our toughest customers: professional outfitters and guides. Outfitters around the world rely on NRS boats, frames, life jackets, apparel and accessories to keep their customers safe, their guides productive and their businesses healthy day after day, season after season.

Our legacy for providing professional-grade equipment informs every new NRS product design through a philosophy we call Ultimate Utility. Ultimate utility is about more than building rugged gear that gets the job done. It’s about purpose-driven, user-focused solutions that enhance experiences on the water. It’s about versatility for changing conditions and multiple activities, with the technical sophistication and visual appeal of the best outdoor gear for any sport. We design all our products in-house in Moscow, Idaho, and we use the gear we build.

At our Moscow, Idaho headquarters you’ll find passionate rafters, whitewater kayakers, sea kayakers, stand up paddlers, kayak anglers and fly fishermen whose lives and livelihoods are intimately connected with water. Our future depends on healthy waters where our customers and we can recreate, recharge and reconnect with nature.

We’re committed to preserving access to on-the-water recreation and to promoting stewardship of our precious wild places. We work closely with national organizations and local groups throughout the world to help take care of our rivers, lakes and oceans.
