Fishpond Boat Bags
2017 Models Available November 2016
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 Cloudburst Gear Bag has a waterproof bottom and a hidden waterproof hood that can be launched if needed.  It also features gunwhale hooks to hold the bag off the bottom of your canoe or jon boat.

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 Westwater Boat Bag

Though the Fishpond Westwater Boat Bag is a favorite among professional guides, this boat bag is perfect for anyone who owns or spends time in a boat.  After all, in a boat, things get wet.  Not anymore!

It is built tough to take years of abuse in fresh and salt water.  It is made from heavy duty 1680 Denier TPU Fabric with welded seams and the signature Fishpond molded bottom.  The access door on top is secured with YKK #10 water resistant zippers. 

Carry it to and from using the adjustable shoulder strap. The bag can be secured and strapped to a canoe, kayak or raft using multiple lash tie down points.

The interior is divided and adjustable using Velcro attachments.  You may want to remove the dividers altogether.  I did that with mine.  These bags are great for safety equipment required on boats, radio, camera, cell phone or anything else you want to keep dry and safe.

Dimensions” 17.5” x 10” x 12.5”.  Weight: 3.7 pounds.  Capacity: 1,405 cubic inches.

The Westwater Boat Bag is made from TPU coated nylon. The Nylon is sourced from recycled fish nets, abandoned and recovered from the ocean.  The material is called Cyclepond. 

The color is Cutthroat Green.

Castaway Roll Top
Gear Bag
Available November 2016

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.

The Castaway is new for 2017.

Fishhpond Cloudburst
Boat & Gear Bag

The Fishpond Cloudburst Gear Bag also appears in our Gear Bag section but actually it can be used either way. This is the boat bag I use personally.

This bag has gunwhale hooks.  They are tucked away in a pocket, ready to be used.  The bag looks good on the gunwhale of a canoe, drift boat or small aluminum fishing boat. 

Open this bag and check out all the features. You will immediately understand why the Cloudburst sells for $224.95.  There are 10 exterior pockets with one being a fold-down fly bench.  That is a lot of zipperage.  Inside, there are 20 pockets and pouches.  You won’t believe what I’m saying until you see this bag.  Velcro dividers in the main compartment allow you to customize your storage.  The possibilities are endless.

The second photo on the right is my bag, fully loaded. It is attached to the gunwhales of our boat, hanging freely off the bottom.

If it rains, you can un-zip the rain cover pocket and quickly cover the bag to keep the water out.  The molded bottom is waterproof too.

A heavy duty padded and adjustable shoulder strap is essential for me because my bag is loaded and heavy. 

The dimensions are 17” x 8” x 10”.  Interior volume is 1,159 cubic inches.  This bag is durable and good looking.  I have not seen a better boat or gear bag than the Cloudburst.

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 make 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.

Thunderhead Waterproof
Sling Pack - Boat Bag

When this sling pack was first shown in the Summer of 2015, I could not wait to see it.  I had to wait until November when the 2016 Fishpond gear became available.  I use water resistant sling packs as boat, kayak and canoe bags.  I use one for a camera bag, to store a DSLR camera on fishing excursions.  I knew right away, this would be my favorite new product from Fishpond for 2016.

Introducing the Fishpond Thunderhead Sling Pack.  I’ve got to have one even though I don’t really need another.

The Thunderhead is waterproof and submersible.  The main compartment is secured with the TIZIP zipper, which is waterproof, even when held under water.  That is important to me because much of my fishing is done in the ocean.  I don’t want saltwater, or any water in with my gear, especially that expensive camera and lens.

Like all Fishpond Westerwater designed packs, this one uses recycled nylon fishing nets recovered from the ocean as the base layer.  That material is covered inside and out with thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) for total waterproof protection.  The seams are welded, just like those found on whitewater rafts.  And with that waterproof zipper on the main compartment, drenched or even damp gear is not a concern.

The smaller front pocket is zipped with a YKK Aquaguard, to shed rain and splashed water. 

The Fishpond Thunderhead works like all their other sling packs.  Keep it on your back when hiking or fishing, then sling it around to the front when you need something.  There are many attachment points for tools.  The tools and water bottle holder shown in the photos are optional and not included.

Fishpond is not giving this pack away, not even to me, after all the nice things I've written about them.  They are not cheap.  But, you can be sure your valuable gear will stay dry in this sling pack.

Other notable features include padded mesh to keep you cool and comfortable and a landing net sleeve for quick access when somebody yells, “Get the net”. 

Dimensions are 16” x 9” x 6.5”.

I need another waterproof sling pack like I need a hole in my head but I will have one of these.

Subermsible Duffel
Available November 2016

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.
