Korkers creates, markets, and distributes all terrain footwear featuring patented adaptable traction that allows outdoor enthusiasts to optimize their traction performance in varying conditions in and out of water.
The Korkers brand was born over 50 years ago on the rugged and treacherous riverbanks of the Rogue River near Grants Pass, Oregon. Made by hand, using scrap rubber, nylon cord, and carbide spikes, Korkers "River Cleats" were created in the basement of Korkers founder, Sherman Smith.
The functional yet versatile design of the cleat system quickly grew as a favorite among fisherman who often found themselves slipping and/or falling on slippery river rock, and eventually spread to provide traction safety to a number of industrial applications such as roofing and outdoor work on snow/ice.
Over the years Korkers hasn't abandoned its independent thinking. The Company continues to be bold and innovative, having the courage to take risks in order to meet the needs of those who identify with the intensity of mountain adventure where extreme conditions can be challenging and unforgiving. Their gear must perform double duty as conditions change rapidly and performance optimization puts every piece of gear to the test. Some people gear up, we prefer "gearing down". That's where Korkers thrives. Our legendary OmniTrax Interchangeable Sole System enables this rare breed the versatility to do more (adventure) with less (gear). Interchangeable felts for fly fishing, interchangeable carbide studded outsoles for traction on snow and ice, and an interchangeable trail sole add up to the most versatile and efficient all-terrain, all-season footwear available. For those that crave outdoor adventure, Korkers expands your boundaries.
Not happy with the PVC flyline technology of the day, Paul Burgess, a mad keen flyfisher, who also happened to be a qualified engineer, set about changing the process by which modern flylines are manufactured. Moving away from the traditional tower system, Paul began extruding fly lines with computer controlled systems that allowed for control over production accuracy previously thought impossible.
That was the late 80's, now over 20 years later, Airflo are the worlds leading manufacturer of solvent free flylines and responsible for developing a series of innovations unparalleled by any other line manufacturer during that period. Whilst we may not have invented the flyline, innovation has been a keystone at every stage in our development, being the originators of Polyurethane coatings, creating the first welded loops, developing low stretch cores and even the worlds first density compensated flylines.
More recently, we've developed an advanced range of flylines with Ridged coatings that reduce surface friction and improve shootability - each breakthrough offering a truly tangible improvement, not some invisible technology developed in the minds of the marketers.
More recently, we've developed an advanced range of flylines with Ridged coatings that reduce surface friction and improve shootability - each breakthrough offering a truly tangible improvement, not some invisible technology developed in the minds of the marketers. 'Green' or 'Environmentally Friendly' is something all fishing companies like to claim, and whilst we are more than happy to make you aware that our coatings are kinder to the environment, it was originally the search for a polymer that didn't leach solvents, was unaffected by UV and ultimately just lasted longer that lead us to pursue Polyurethane as an alternative to solvent based PVC.
The final result is what we believe to be the worlds most advanced range of flylines and judging by the bandwagon we've created with our continuous stream of innovation, most of our competitors would seem to agree.
