Welcome to Yewchati Company! We are two brothers and a childhood friend who have come together to bring you our take on simple, southern style. For years the three of us have wanted to work together, but were never able to find that “idea” to pursue. We decided to combine what we know and what we are passionate about: fly fishing, southern style, and our favorite fish species – trout. After an unsuccessful search for a simple “trout dad hat,” we decided to create our own design. We decided to try out hats and t-shirts first, but our goal is to create an entire line of clothing, from polo shirts, fishing shirts, and button-downs to socks and belts. Quality and durability are extremely important to us (one of us is a legit “quality snob”) and we aim to produce only top-of-the-line goods for you. If you want to keep up with what we are doing or just want to see some cool pics, give us a follow on Instagram @yewchati.
Keepin tight lines,
Each of us at Yewchati Co. were born and raised near the southern Appalachian mountains and we wanted the name of our company to reflect those roots.
Our favorite fishing spots are in the heart of Cherokee lands, and our name is derived from an old Cherokee word for "fish." Our pronunciation of Yewchati is "you-chah-tee" and we had been shouting it on the river whenever we caught a fish. It’s the perfect celebratory word after landing a beautiful trout!
Whether it's Saturdays on the river, backyard barbecues, or sitting on the front porch with a cold one, we celebrate good times with friends. Our hope is to create products that reflect our passion for living "the good life." With that, we hope you enjoy what we make and always celebrate with a, "Yewchati!"
