Nobody understands, better than the folks at Fishpond, anglers venture into the backcountry. We enjoy fly fishing where others enjoy the same less frequently, if at all. We may stay there all day or for several days. Fly fishermen may walk miles to get to that favorite stretch of a stream or a secluded lake. For those, Fishpond designs a whole lineup of gear to carry all the essentials. In the backcountry you will need food, potable water, extra clothing, rain gear and even survival gear.
Fishpond makes backpacks for fishermen. They are designed to carry what you need and enhance your fly fishing experience while you are there. Some of their gear is made to get you there, then adapt to fishing while you are there. Many of their packs serve multiple purposes by adaptation, using components that may be moved and utilized differently depending on the circumstances. Below are the Fishpond fly fishing packs and combinations that include chest, lumbar or waist packs.
Combining one or more Fishpond fly fishing pieces allows you to customize your style and requirements. Everything made by Fishpond is designed to withstand the rigors of life in the toughest environments while making for a day of pleasure and comfort. Adjustability makes it easy to accommodate your standard size or when you need to bulk up for warmth or to stay dry.
It’s been thought out. These packs have purpose. Some keep your gear dry no matter what the weather is like. Others are designed to be lightweight. You will find the perfect piece of gear for your backcountry fly fishing excursions below.
NOTE: All Fishpond items shown in this gear guide are current 2017 merchandise and in some cases, new 2017 gear. Most new and updated gear will be available for sale in November 2016.
