Florida First Responder Appreciation Week

For the second year in a row, Florida’s Governor Rick Scott has declared January 4 – 8, 2016 as Florida First Responder Appreciation Week. We here at the Hoo would like to extend our thanks to all the emergency service employees who play such a critical role in keeping our community safe.

In honor of our home state’s First Responder Appreciation Week, we have put our Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line Hoo-rags on sale thru Friday.

Thin Blue Line Hoo-rag                                                                                     Thin Red Line Hoo-rag

Make sure to take the time to thank a first responder for their dedication and service this week!

Click here to check out all 8 designs or keep scrollin’ to them in all their glory!

Bass Performance Shirt

The Large Mouth Bass. A pig of a fish and more than willing to slurp a soft plastic on the bottom or smash your favorite plug on the surface at first light. It’s the most sought after fish on the planet and we prefer to yell “LUNKER” when we strike one over 8 pounds. We took the bass’ nickname and tricked out the words on our Lunker Performance Shirt to look just like that fat little fish you love to hammer!

Will include the Lunker Junkie Hoo-rag.

Mahi Performance Shirt

The Mahi. A fast growing, pelagic fish with an appetite for destruction. And let’s not forget it’s absolutely delicious! We took this saltwater beauty’s unforgettable shape and spelled it out with a typography that looks mean, lean and green on our new Mahi Performance Shirt.

Will include the Bull Hoo.

Redfish Performance Shirt

The Red Drum. We call them the “Men in Copper Jackets” but you can call them whatever you want. Red fishing is for anglers who love a visual experience while on the water. There is nothing better than watching a giant drum turn on and eat your offering and listening to the drag scream across inches of water on your favorite flat. We took this beauty’s name, played with the letters and came up with this rock ‘n’ roll inspired Red Drum Performance Shirt that will surely turn some heads!

Will include the Redfish Riot.

Tarpon Performance Shirt

Megalops. Easily the most pissed off fish on the planet. These silver fish carry attitudes bigger than their scales and are appropriately known as the ‘Silver King’. In our humble opinion, the tarpon is the most frustrating, rewarding and fist-pumping fish in the world. We took our favorite nickname and tried to make it as rad as humanly possible on the new Silver King Performance Shirt.

Will include the Tarpon Real Foto Hoo-rag.

Snook Performance Shirt

The Super Snook Performance Shirt features the an original artwork from Joe Seroviec. Everyone loves the tenacity, strength and aggressive nature of a linesider and this piece of awesome art is one of our favorites!

Will include the Gray Digital Camo Hoo-rag.

Hoo-rag Performance Shirt

The Schooled Performance Shirt is all about that bait. While throwing artificial bait is rewarding and fun, there is nothing like finding your favorite school of bait and seeking out the giants that lurk below.

Will include The Schooled Hoo.

Florida Flag Fishing Shirt

The Native Fly Performance Shirt features the Florida State flag with our own little twist for all you long rod enthusiasts that love to strike your favorite species on the fly.

Will include The Florida Flag Hoo-rag.

Each shirt provides a UPF rating of up to 50 and is printed in our production facility in Fort Pierce, Florida. These performance shirts are ready to keep you protected from the Sun’s harmful rays while you are out doing the things you love! And you’ll be covered in Hoo sun protection with your Free Hoo with any shirt purchase – valid thru 9/30 at 2pm EST.

Customs Client Spotlight: Hike For K9 Heroes


Hike For K9 Heroes is a fundraiser for Warrior Dog Foundation taking place on September 8th. Abby, a 7 year old East German Czech shepherd, will be hiking across the White Mountains of New Hampshire. She and her family will hike various mountains and camp on their way to Mount Washington.

Warrior Dog Foundation is dedicated to serving the Special Operations community, families, and Special Operation Forces (SOF) working K-9 military dogs. The K-9s employed with these forces are the top of the line in the working-dog world. They are expected to work in the most difficult of environments and face conditions that most human beings can’t survive. This is the atmosphere in which these elite warriors operate. The K-9 units are vital in ensuring the success of every mission and operate in all conditions.

Mount Washington is notorious for it’s inclement weather, due to three weather fronts meeting. It is often hiked by mountaineers training for Mount Everest and it’s Abby’s main objective! During Abby’s hike, the Hike For K9 Heroes website will be updated daily with pictures and the progress they’re making, and will also feature Abby’s activity level. Check it out here!
