Fishpond Boat Bags
2018 Models Available November 2017
Free Ground Shipping

We fly fishermen love our boats and boating. We fly fish from canoes, kayaks, drift boats, flats boats, aluminum fishing boats and other skiffs. For many of us, boating is essential and integrated into the sport of fly fishing. That's why Fishpond makes boat bags.

Fishpond boat bags are well designed to store you fishing and boating gear while keeping it dry.  Some of these bags are water resistant. Others, like the Thunderhead series and the Castaway are submersible. The Thunderhead Sling Pack is, as described, a sling pack. But, this also serves well as a boat bag, when your camera or other water sensitive contents “must stay dry”. That is why we added it to the boat bag category. It makes a great canoe or kayak waterproof bag.

The Green River has a waterproof bottom and is a great organizer for a boat. Check out the new Cutbank Gear Bag. The new Thunderhead Backpack makes an excellent boat bag. It is submersible.

There are three Fishpond roll top bags that will keep your gear dry. They include the Castaway, Whitewater and Wind River.

The Drifty Boat Caddie and the Cerveza Sidekick are boat organizers. The Cerveza can also be worn as a small chest pack.

We fish from many different types of boats.  Whatever type of boat you may be using today, you may fish out of something different next week.

Fishpond Boat Bags are very adaptable to your needs.  Like all Fishpond products, they are made to last.  Please enjoy reading about these fantastic boat bags.

Fishpond Drifty Boat Caddie

This is one of the most useful accessories for the fly fisherman who fishes from a boat. It’s perfect for canoes, drift boats, rafts, kayaks, aluminum fishing boats, or any boat. The Fishpond Drifty Boat Caddie organizes just what you need often and immediately. It keeps your gear handy and out of the way. The Drifty is an “organizer”. 

It features one main zippered pocket for fly boxes, leaders and tippet. On the front you will find a zip down fly bench with replaceable foam for your flies. You can remove the foam fly patch, which is attached using Velcro, and move it to the front of the bench, outside, so the flies you have used can dry.

Included is a beverage holder, one very important feature. How many times have you spilled a canned drink in a boat?  Lots of times.

You can attach your Drifty in many ways to your boat or cooler. In many cases, you can use the straps that attach to your gunwhale or raft frame using the non-scratching hooks on adjustable straps. You can also attach the orange snaps to a cooler or boat seat. Then, your Caddie can be removed or replaced easily using the snaps and leaving the snap straps permanently attached with screws.

There are many attachment points on the Fishpond Drifty Boat Caddie. The tools you see in the photos are optional and not included.

Dimensions are 11.25” x 9” x 5”. Color is Sand.

Fishpond Cutbank
Gear Bag
New for 2018

The Fishpond Cutbank Gear Bag, was designed and made so fly fishermen could better organize their gear and keep it dry. Like many Fishpond gear bags and luggage, the Cutbank features the signature molded bottom for support and durability.

This tackle bag keeps your gear dry on drift boats, flats boats, rafts, kayaks and canoes. Move the Velcro attached, rigid dividers around to different locations in the bag, to fit your particular needs.

The Cutbank is made using welded 1680 denier nylon, that is coated with thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) for superior waterproofness and durability. The nylon is recycled from abandoned fishing nets found in the ocean, which is referred to as Cyclepond. A YKK water resistant zipper, keeps your gear dry while allowing easy access to the bag. It is rigid. The Cutbank stands on its own, full or empty.

Below are some other important features:

Included Velcro fly patch for the top lid

A fully adjustable shoulder strap.

Two clear interior zippered pockets under the lid and two more Velcro backed and zipper pockets allow more customization for your gear.

4 heavy duty boat lash tie down points and dual hemostat, knife or tippet accessory attachments are located outside the bag.

The interior is removable, so the bag can be packed flat for travel.

Castaway Roll Top
Gear Bag

Fishpond’s Castaway Roll Top Gear Bag is made just for fly fishermen who need a smaller waterproof bag for cameras, cell phones, billfolds and other items that are sensitive to moisture.

The Castaway is relatively small compared to some of the beasts made by Fishpond. It fits neatly in hatches on guide boats, or in your canoe or kayak. One really important feature, other than being completely waterproof, is the fact that it has a padded and removable interior with dividers.

The Castaway can be packed flat in your luggage, another important feature for the traveling angler.

The Castaway is made from 420 Denier Recycled Nylon, then coated with Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), with welded seams. It won’t leak. The roll top system, used by Fishpond on many other pieces, is a sure fire, leak-proof method, of sealing watertight bags.

It features an interior top pouch with zipper access. The Castaway also includes two removable interior clear pockets. There are several exterior attachment points for rod tube straps or other items you may want to keep handy. Fishpond’s signature molded bottom provides rigid support and durability.

Dimensions are 13.5” x 10” x 9” or 732 cubic inches.

Fishpond Cerveza Sidekick
Boat Caddie and Chest Pack

Fishpond’s Cerveza Sidekick is a very useful fly fishing accessory.  It can be used as a small chest pack, or an organizer for your boat, canoe or kayak. We listed the Cerveza in both categories on this website for that reason.  

The Cerveza Sidekick has one zippered main compartment that is perfect for a fly box, leaders and tippet.  A molded beverage holder secures your favorite beverage.  Several tabs and attachment points allows for customizing the Sidekick just for you. 

Some items are shown in the photo to the right, depicting how this can be done.  The tools and accessories do not come with the Cerveza Sidekick.  They are optional.

A padded neck strap and torso belt holds the sidekick next to your chest and out of the way while you are fishing.  Look down, and everything is there and accessible. 

The Cerveza Sidekick can also be used as an organizer in a boat.  It may be attached to a vertical surface, maybe a cooler or boat seat.  Screws hold the orange tabs where you want to mount it, and it can be removed temporarily by releasing the snaps.

Whitewater Dry Bag
New for 2018

Fishpond’s Whitewater Dry Bag is one of the most useful accessories you need, and you may not know you do, until you own one. Fishpond has been making similar dry bags for many years. I own two. This is the third generation, and it’s an upgrade, with a new name.

The color, “Gravel”, coordinates with many other Fishpond gear pieces in the 2018 collection.

This bag is durable and tough. It is waterproof. Your gear will stay dry and protected from rain or standing water. Drop it overboard with a reasonable load, and it will float. This is a proven system. The roll top closure is proven. The Whitewater Dry Bag is constructed of Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), with heat welded seams.

A clear section allows for viewing the contents.

Until you own one, you will not know how you got by without it!

Dimensions: 23” x 13.5”

Subermsible Duffel

The Fishpond Thunderhead Submersible Duffel, is a small bag, for short excursions, or small loads, where total waterproof capability is required or desired. It will keep your fishing gear and personal items dry, no matter what water related contact occurs, even total submersion.

The Thunderhead Submersible Duffel is made from 840 denier recycled nylon fabric, coated with TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane). The seams are TPU welded for sure protection from water seepage.

The main cargo zipper is a TIZIP, which, when closed is waterproof and air tight. This zipper was invented by and is manufactured by Titex, a German Company. They make zippers designed for dry bags, dry suits and some are approved for survival suits.

The zipper on the exterior pocket is a YKK Aquaguard. It is water resistant, more so than you would expect.

Daisy chain webbing is attached to the bag, allowing for strapping gear on. The gear straps, that hold rod tubes are not included. The carry handles are made from braided climbing rope.

Dimensions are 21” x 12.5” x 11”, which is Carry-On size compatible. The color is bright orange, so you can see it bobbing in the lake or ocean, or down a whitewater stream, for easier recovery. You will see this great little bag in several categories on this website, because it has so many uses, including dry bags, luggage, gear bags and boat bags..

This bag sells for $299.95, which seems expensive, unless you factor in the loss incurred by getting your valuable gear wet, destroyed or rendered temporarily useless. You can count on this bag keeping everything dry.
