Fishpond Fly Fishing Duffel Bags
Free Ground Shipping

I love duffel bags for my fly fishing travel. In fact, I’ve been using a Fishpond Bumpy Road duffel bag for several years. I take it every time I travel.

Fishpond offers 6 different duffel bags in their lineup this year. One has wheels and handles for easily towing with no lifting. Some are made from waterproof TPU to help keep your clothing and accessories dry.

One of Fishpond’s duffel bags have separate compartments for wet waders. That comes in handy on a fly fishing vacation, when you go fishing the day before you leave. We usually do, don’t we?

Many of these duffel bags are also featured in the luggage section of this website but we thought they should have a special place of their own. So, here they are. Browse through the selection of duffels and determine if one is right for you.

We do not charge for ground shipping in the contiguous United States.


NOTE:  All Fishpond items shown in this gear guide are current 2020 merchandise and in some cases, new 2020 gear. Most new and updated gear will be available for sale in November 2019.

Jagged Basin Duffel

Introduced last year to the Fishpond collection of fine waxed cotton luggage, check out the Jagged Basin Duffel. This piece is seeping in tradition and it has plenty of rugged appeal, while being quite at home in the lobby of the finest hotels in the world. Throw it in the bed of your pickup truck or in the back seat of a helicopter. The Jagged Basin goes where you go.

While still small enough to be carry-on compatible, this luggage piece holds lots of gear. After all, it is a duffel. There is no wasted space in duffels.

There are many ways to tote this piece. Carry handles are located on the top and on one end. A padded and included shoulder strap can be attached quickly if needed. If those don’t work, un-zip the shoulder strap compartment, pull them out, and you have a backpack, for short trips through the terminal or into the lodge. 

The outer layer is made from 16 oz waxed cotton canvas. The main compartment zipper is a water resistant YKK Aquaguard. The interior is lined with recycled Cyclepond nylon fabric. Cyclepond is made from abandoned and forgotten fishing nets, found in the ocean.

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

 Fishpond Thunderhead Submersible Duffel Both Colors

Horizontal Line

Thunderhead Large
Submersible Duffel

Using the world’s best waterproof technology for a dry bag duffel, Fishpond has created the perfect travel piece for fly fishermen. This duffel will keep your contents dry, under any conditions, even under water. This is the larger version of the Thunderhead Submersible Duffel.

The base material is 840 Denier recycled nylon, coated with TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane). This is what whitewater rafts are made of. This stuff is tough. The seams are TPU welded fabric.

Here is where the latest technology comes in. The main compartment zipper is a TIZIP waterproof submersible zipper. TZIP was invented by and manufactured by Titex, a German company. They make waterproof zippers for many applications, including survival suits, that keep people alive in cold water conditions, if they fall overboard or their boat sinks. Titex zippers can’t fail. People’s lives depend on them.

If you close the zipper, and try to compress this duffel, air does not escape. It is air, gas and water tight.

The smaller outside pocket uses a YKK Aquaguard zipper for access. It is water resistant and works well. My camera bag has one of these zippers, and it has kept the camera dry in my kayak, boat and in terrible thunderstorms. It will not keep the camera dry when the bag is submerged, like the TZIP zipper will.

The Thunderhead Large Submersible Duffel measures 30” x 15” x 15”. The inside is large enough for 9’ 4 piece rod tubes. The interior volume is 6,102 cubic inches, or 100 liters.

One color is Bright Orange, so if you bag goes overboard, I can be easily seen in the ocean, lake or river, and hopefully recovered.

The handles are made from braided climbing rope. Daisy chain webbing provides attachment points. There are back straps on the bottom that tuck away until you need them to carry this duffle on you back, so you can carry more gear in your hands. Gear straps, that work well for attaching rod tubes to the outside are included.

This duffel has it all, to protect your valuable contents while making it easy to transport such a large bag.

Colors: Cutthroat Orange and Riverbed Camo
