For around $150, you can choose from some fully loaded fly fishing vest packs. One model comes fully packed with float powder and gel, a pack of leaders, a spool of tippet and a pair of forceps, snips, some flies, and a fly box. If you're just starting out, this gives you the full package at one go. Another option in this upper range comes with a hydration system, keeping you prepared even if you spend all day hiking and fishing. This ergonomically designed pack ensures you comfort all day long. A neoprene-insulated bladder will keep almost half a gallon of water available so you stay hydrated. It is easily cleaned. Seven pockets are designed to keep your essentials convenient. Hand warmer pockets will help keep the chill away from your fingers as the evening cools down. High tech is also available in this range. Not only does it look good, it is designed to be convenient for anglers. Separate the backpack from the rest of the vest pack with the click of a few buckles. Another allows you room to pack all your gear in one convenient place. Two molded zip-down fly benches are built in with replaceable foam. Front pockets are water-resistant with taped seams and splash proof zippers. An integrated rod tube holder, two large backpack cargo compartments, an expandable main cargo pocket on the backpack and breathable, waterproof fabric make this vest pack one of the best. Eight large front pockets and four large interior front pockets hold all your essential gear.
Our fishing pack trips take us nearly 15 miles into the back country. You’ll experience incredible fishing, scenery, food and solitude. We ride gentle and experienced horses into our high mountain wall tent camp. These trips begin with the four hour horseback ride into our camp near the Cloud Peak Wilderness.
Altogether a great and very functional fly fishing pack that will perform for many years. Its simplicity and open design make it one of the most versatile pieces of gear you’ll find. Smart gear from smart folks. I’m always impressed with Fishpond.
