Fishpond Fly Fishing Vests
2017 Models Available November 2016
Free Ground Shipping

Fishpond fly fishing vests are unique, and adjustable, making them ideal for sizing to the clothing you are wearing at the time. This feature alone, makes Fishpond stand out as a leader among companies who make vests. Fishpond has many other features, unique to fly fishing vests you can buy. You should really take a close look at Fishpond vests, if you are in the market for one.

A fly fishing vest is very personal item.  Some people like certain features.  We do have our idea of perfection and we want to see that in our fishing vest.

Fishpond did something different when they started designing and manufacturing vests.  They made them adjustable.  The length is adjustable and the width can be easily changed to fit about any person.  Of course that makes it easy for us.  We just sell one size.

But, more importantly, you can change the size of your vest depending on what you are wearing that particular day.  If you are wearing a heavy down jacket under your vest, make it larger.  If you are wearing a t-shirt, pull in the slack.

Some Fishpond vests are made from lightweight materials.  Others are made from mesh fabrics for air circulation on hot days.  And then there are the waxed cotton vests.  They are made to look good, hold up for years and fit in with the tradition of fly fishing culture.

Most of the vests in the Fishpond are ventilated, including the Vaquero, Flint Hills, Sagebrush, Muchacha, Elk River and the Gore Range. Some are ventilated more than others.

Fishpond makes a fly fishing vest for ladies.  We sell a lot of those.  Not many companies make a women’s specific fly fishing vest. Fishpond does. It is called “The Muchacha”. The Muchacha is a serious fly fishing vest.

And then there is the youth vest.  This is a serious piece of gear that will grow with a young boy or girl.  They are adjustable like all Fishpond vests. Fishpond’s youth vest is called the “Elk River”.

The Vaquero Waxed Cotton Canvas vest is seeping in tradition. This is one of our best sellers.

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.

Vaquero Recycled Nylon Vest

The Vaquero Recycled Nylon Vest is another great product from Fishpond that was introduced in 2015.  This vest is very popular, one of our better sellers.

It is a strap vest, somewhat resembles many you have seen before but this one is different.  Designed exactly like the waxed cotton Vaquero, this vest is made from Fishpond’s Cyclepond fabric.  Cyclepond is made from abandoned and recovered nylon fishing nets, found in the ocean. 

Features include a one-size-fits-most adjustable shoulder and waist strap system.  This also allows you to change it’s size depending on how much clothing you are wearing underneath.

The Vaquero features two large main pockets that will hold several large fly boxes.  Four smaller pockets are located on the front for small boxes, leaders, tippet and tools for handy access.  They have snaps that require only one hand to open and close.

A large back, easy-access pouch holds lunch and a wading jacket with a zippered closure for extra security.  This vest is loaded with attachment straps and gear attachment tabs, including a D-rings with one on the back for your landing net.  The Vaquero is mesh lined for cool comfort. 

This new vest is lightweight and good looking.  Color is Driftwood.

Fishpond Flint Hills Vest

This is an exceptional fly fishing vest at a very reasonable price.  The Flint Hills Vest is a simplified Fishpond creation that has many features found in their vests costing much more.

As with all Fishpond Vests, the Flint Hills is adjustable, one size fits most.  You can adjust the height and depth to fit you perfectly.  You may also re-adjust for times when you wear heavier clothing or go fishing wearing nothing but a t-shirt. 

The mesh lining keeps you cool by allowing air to circulate throughout.  This vest is also very light.  You may forget you are wearing a vest if you don’t fill it up with too much gear.

Storage features include six zippered front pockets and a large “easy-access” back pouch for a rain jacket, lunch and a water bottle.

It's loaded with attachment points for zingers and tools, including a landing net D-ring on the back.

If you want a very good looking and functional vest at a reasonable price, the Fishpond Flint Hills Vest is for you.

Sagebrush Mesh Vest

The Sagebrush Mesh Vest is loaded with storage and features but it is very light.  It is cool too, in more ways than one. 

The Sagebrush is made using plenty of mesh to keep you cool and comfortable.  The materials are made from recycled and discarded commercial fishing nets. 

Like all Fishpond vests, this one is adjustable to fit almost anyone and it can be re-adjusted for you to compensate for extra layers of clothing during the cold months. 

Don’t let all of that mesh fool you.  It’s loaded with pockets and pouches.  For instance, there are 10 zippered pockets on the front.  There is an additional zippered pocket on the back including a large back pouch for a rain jacket, water bottle or lunch.

A tippet dispenser pocket along with a patented, signature zip-down fly bench can be found on the front.    

Inside are four additional pockets. 

So, here you have plenty of room for anything you need for a day of fly fishing, in a lightweight vest, at a reasonable price. 

The color is Alpine Green, our favorite.

Muchacha Women's Vest

The Muchacha Womens’s Tech Vest from Fishpond is the nicest ladies fly fishing vest I have seen, and we have been in this business over 20 years. It does look great. But, this is a very real functional fly fishing vest, made to fit women.  This vest was new in Fishpond’s lineup for 2016 and it is nice!

The pockets are large enough to hold big fly boxes. There are 13 exterior pockets. This vest may look pretty, but it is a serious vest for a serious fly fishing woman. I like the fleece lined hand warmer pockets. I wish my vest had those. There is more than ample room in the back pockets for a rain jacket, lunch, water bottle and extra gear.

The Fishpond Muchacha is adjustable.  One size fits most. Of equal importance, it is adjustable for other reasons too. That is a very handy feature. You can make the vest larger for winter fishing, then adjust it to be smaller when you are wearing less clothing during the summer.

You will find numerous attachment points for tools and accessories, including a landing net. The back is mesh for cool comfort during the hot months.

The materials used are recycled from nylon abandoned fishing nets found in the ocean.  These nets harm or kill fish and other aquatic animals. Fishpond is helping rid the oceans of these deadly nets.

The color is Tortuga. One size fits most.

The Vaquero is seeping in tradition too.  It’s 16 oz waxed cotton material dyed in the color silt, is reminiscent of the turn of the century (one before last).  On the other hand, the mesh back allows air to flow and help keep you cool on hot days so it’s technical too but nobody will know but you.

This tech pack is adjustable using shoulder straps and waist straps so it fits most people and can be adjusted for the seasons when you wear heavier clothing.

It comes in two great colors, Barnwood and Alpine Green.  Fishpond calls it a pack because of all the gear it holds.  But, it is really a vest.
