Miss Mayfly was founded in 2016 by new fly fisher Kimberly Ranalla. She took up the sport while rehabilitating from multiple spinal injuries, and soon discovered that it was difficult to find waders that fit her properly. Her search to find high-performance waders with a flattering fit led her to start the company Miss Mayfly. It’s now owned by Angler Sport Group, the same company that distributes Chota Outdoor Gear, C&F Design fly boxes, Daiichi hooks, Varivas tippet, Vosseler reels, and many other brands.
Miss Mayfly breathable chest waders ($270, missmayfly.com) come in five different fits: slim, curvy, full, plus, and supreme. Consumers choose from four different bootie sizes, and those five fits, to find waders that are just right for individual body shapes and sizes. The company slogan is “a custom fit without a custom order.”
Miss Mayfly plans to release a line of matching wading boots in 2021, as well as waders sized for children.
