Fishpond Fly Fishing Tools and Accessories
2019 Gear Available November 2018
Free Ground Shipping

Fishpond began as a designer and manufacturer of fly fishing tools and accessories.  That’s it!  That is how they started.  We bought and sold them to customers in 2002.  Of course, John Le Coq and Dave Thompson had bigger fish to fry.  But these tools are how they started.

If you are a fly fisherman, and you probably are, you are going to see some cool things on this page.  One of my favorites is the Swift Current Thermometer.  Another is the Sawtooth Aluminum Clipper.  Everybody loves these two accessories.

Check out the Fishpond Dry Shake Bottle Holder.  It solves the problem of keeping your Shimizaki easy to find and ready to use.

The Headgate Tippet Holder has become our best selling Fishpond item. Now there is a larger one.  

Fishpond remains true to their roots and commitment to making high quality products for fly fishermen and that continues with this lineup of tools and accessories.

They also look good on your Fishpond vest, pack or bag.

NOTE:  All Fishpond items shown in this gear guide are current 2019 merchandise and in some cases, new 2019 gear. Most new and updated gear will be available for sale in November 2018.

Fishpond Arrowhead Retractor

Fishpond’s Arrowhead Retractor is handcrafted in Colorado using aerospace aluminum. This is not your ordinary zinger, not by a long shot. First, the retractor line is 130 pound test braided nylon, for super strength and flexibility.

The retractor action is smooth, what you would expect from a tool this nice, and made by Fishpond.

The built in carabiner clip attaches to your vest, pack or boat bag’s D-rings, Hypalon tabs, strap loops, coated webbings, button holes, and about any place you can think of. It won’t come off. It can be easily moved.

Attach your tools using a split ring, one of the safest attachment designs around.

The body, made from 6060 aerospace aluminum, is actually shaped like an arrowhead, thus, the name.

This accessory is well matched to other Fishpond gear, by design.

Dimensions: 3.75” x 1.25”

Weight: 0.8 oz

Fishpond Headgate
Tippet Holder XL


Fly fishermen who like to organize their tippet spools, will find the Fishpond Headgate XL Tippet Holder does just that, in a big way. Similar to the very popular original Headgate, this one is larger. The XL holds 4” tippet spools, that many anglers use for big game fish. It holds five 4” spools and thirteen standard spools.

The Headgate XL uses the same spring loaded pull, found on the original Headgate, for access to change spools. Two rubber gaskets hold the spools on the bar, so they do not slide.

The plastic clip allows you to attach the Headgate XL to almost any Fishpond vest, pack or gear bag. Or, remove the clip and attach using other means, such as daisy chains or Hytpalon tunnels found on Fishpond packs and bags.

Fishpond Headgate
Tippet Holder

The Headgate Tippet Holder is our best selling Fishpond item.  This is one clever device for those of us who want our tippet hanging within reach at all times.  We’ve seen a lot of tippet holders over the years.  This one is the best we’ve seen.

The Headgate Tippet Holder is made from anodized aerospace aluminum for light weight and corrosion resistance.  A slot in the main frame allows for attachment to many different zingers or other devices you use on your vest or pack. 

A slotted line cutter neatly clips your tippet but remains recessed so you don’t cut anything unintentionally.  The razor blade cutter is replaceable.

The Headgate holds up to 7 tippet spools and changing them is easy thanks to the spring loaded pull that opens easily but not by accident.

You will enjoy fly fishing with this fine tool.  Fishpond does everything possible to improve your day on the river or lake.

Fishpond Piopod
Microtrash Container


I would have never thought about making a product like this one.  Only Fishpond had the vision.  The Piopod Microtrash Container is one of those ideas that only they would think of.  Think about how much trash, little stuff you put in your fly fishing vest pocket.  The worst offender is a used leader or tippet material.  No matter how careful you are, that trash can end up on the ground or in the stream.

The Piopod has a lip opening, perfect for stuffing small trash into.  It’s ideal for leader material, worn out flies, used split shot and paper.  You just stuff the trash in the Piopod then empty it when you get home. 

The top pops off for emptying. You can hook the Piopod to webbing, a D-Ring or a fishing lanyard. 

Heck, put it in your vest pocket.  This is a great little gadget to have with you when fishing.  Dimensions are 3.2” x 1.9”.  They come in assorted colors.  We never know what color we are going to get so you won’t either.

Fishpond Swift Current Thermometer

The Fishpond Swift Current Thermometer is the nicest one we sell.  It not only looks good, it is made to last and it is accurate.  The glass is encased in a durable aluminum shell for durability.

Knowing the water temperature is essential to successful fishing and the Swift Current is definitely the thermometer to own.  They are available in Blue or Gunmetal. The dual scale reads in Fahrenheit and Celsius.

Fishpond 360 Degree
Swivel Retractors

The 360 Degree Swivel Retractor is a very useful innovation.  To attach the retractor to your vest or chest pack, push the retainer pin through the back of the material.  Then, push down on the button on top of the retractor and insert it into the device. 

Once attached, the retractor pivots on the pin in any direction, up, down, left, right or anywhere in between.  When not used it hangs down.  Dimensions are 3.75” x .625”.  Color choices are Lichen or Gunmetal.

Fishpond Confluence
Net Release

This is Fishpond’s Confluence Net Release, one of Fishpond's most clever creations.  We really like this net release, mainly because, hanging your net with the hoop up and the handle down makes it easier to grab your net handle when needed. 

Also, having the hoop and bag high on your back helps keep you from catching your net on branches.  That can be very frustrating.  This configuration is much better than the old way.

The Fishpond Confluence has a soft strap that clamps around the hoop of your net without scratching it.  You don’t want to scratch your new Nomad Native net, do you? 

Additionally, the net is held to your vest or pack with a very strong magnet.  When you are ready to land your fish, just grab the handle of your net and pull.  A length of retractor cable stretches out so you can capture your trout, but retracts to it’s original length when you re-attach.

To re-attach, just get the hoop near the magnet while holding the handle, and you can complete the process using only one hand. 

You will love this net release and should consider it as a great addition to your streamside accessories for your vest or pack.

Fishpond Dry Shake
Bottle Holder
New Colors for 2019

Fishpond solved the problem, “How do you store Shimazaki?”  You store it in the Dry Shake Bottle Holder.  There are other similar products that are packaged the same way.  Many of the Loon powders and descants come in the same type of bottles. 

The problems was, you are holding your fly in one hand and trying to dig out your dry fly powder with the other. 

This handy holder clips to your vest or pack and it’s ready anytime you are. This is a great gadget to have on your vest or pack.  It makes life easier.

Colors: Brown Trout, Steelhead or Cutthroat Orange

Fishpond Sushi Rolls
Fly Transport System

When Fishpond introduced their first Sushi Roll large fly roll I had to warm up to it. After a closer look, “I get it”.  What a great idea for those who fish with bushy streamers. The musky fly angling crowd love these. The striper fishermen do to, as well as the saltwater anglers.

The Sushi Rolls hold your flies without mashing them.  They are rolled and the foam ridges you see on the edge, keep the flies in a air pocket, safe from crunching.  It is hard to explain, but when you see this Sushi Roll in action, you will understand.

Now, Fishpond makes the Sushi Roll in three sizes. They are:

Small – 10.5” x 7.25”
Large – 10” x 16”
X-Large – 15” x 16”

The Sushi Roll is a very effective and convenient way to transport your big flies safely, without damage.

Fishpond West Bank
Wading Belt
Available November 2018

If you are interested in one of the most innovative and useful fly fishing wading belts, at a reasonable price, the Fishpond West Bank Wading Belt may be just what you are looking for.

The Fishpond West Bank Wading Belt has a built in landing net holster on the back of the belt. Your net will be held securely with the bag parked next to your back, so you probably will not snag limbs while walking along the stream or through the forest. This holster fits most landing net handles.

An attachment system called a “floating rail” allows for attaching small packs, water bottle holders, wading staff and other accessories to your belt. These accessories may be moved along the rail toward the front, giving you easy access. Then, they can be pushed back and out of the way.

The West Bank Wading Belt is comfortable due to the fact that your body is in contact with thermoformed foam. Additionally, this belt is wide enough to offer lower back support.

The belt length can be adjusted up to 63”, to fit almost anyone. The padded section is 32” long. The belt is held tightly to your body by a buckle and easily locks and unlocks.

Look at the price. You thought I would cost more, didn’t you?

Fishpond Sawtooth
Aluminum Clipper

Fly fishing anglers will love Fishond’s new line cutter and nipper, the Sawtooth Aluminum Clipper. The Sawtooth looks like the former Barracuda Clipper, but there is a difference. The Sawtooth has a better blade design. This is going to be a very popular line cutter.

The jaws are replaceable and made from stainless steel. They operate like a chopping block, and alignment won’t be an issue. It cuts 8X to 80 pound test tippet and even cuts braided line.

The convenient and built in hook eye clean-out tool will get a lot of use, as we know.

The patented design is ergonomic, which fits well in your hand.

Dimensions are 3.56” x .6”

The staff pouch is constructed from thermoformed foam and ballistic nylon. It can be used with any wading belt up to two inches wide. A D-ring is built into the pouch so you may attach a retractor (not included).

You have two tip options, carbide for slick stream rocks, or slip on the rubber tip for a stealthy approach.

You will not find a finer wading staff at this price.

Fishpond Molded Water Bottle Holder Large 7"

Fishpond’s new 7” Large Molded Water Bottle Holder, may be as popular for outdoor enthusiasts as the smaller 5” version has been. The original is a huge selling item in our store. The innovative, rigid, molded bottle holder design will likely last for decades. This is a very useful piece of gear.

Rigid design is of the utmost importance with this product. Rigid sets this bottle holder apart from all others that are not. Because it is rigid, it can be mounted in many different ways to almost anything. I mounted the smaller version to the door in my truck, because my cup holders in the console always have something else in them.

The Fishpond Molded Large Bottle Holder has a wide and long, Velcro flap, for attaching to any belt, either the one holding your pants up or the one keeping your waders tight.

Another key innovation is the 4-Way Lash Tab. See the black piece on the back of the holder? You can pull many different types of fabric, string or Velcro though the slots, vertical or horizontal. Using your imagination, you will be able to mount the holder to about anything.

The cord loop hanger on the back of the holder gives you even more attachment options.

I thought about using wood screws and a washer, to attach a Fishpond Molded Water Bottle Holder to a solid surface, like a boat or cooler.

Remember, it is rigid so It can be attached horizontal. The locking drawstring will hold your bottle in place.

So far, here is what I put in my 5” Molded Bottle Holder from Fishpond. I have not tried the 7" model.

Can of beer or soft drink.
10 oz glass water bottle.
16.9 oz plastic water bottle.
Yeti Colster. It is a perfect fit.
Yeti 20 oz Tumbler fits.
Solo Cup

Most bottled drinks bought in a grocery stores or convenience markets will fit, except the really big ones.

Fishpond Molded
Water Bottle Holder

The Fishpond Molded Water Bottle Holder is one of the most useful pieces of gear made by Fishond. It was introduced in late 2015. They are popular. Most people probably bought them initially as a water bottle holder.

This bottle holder is rigid, which allows you to attach it either horizontally or vertically. It does not sag. It stays put!

You can easily attach it to any belt, using the Velcro lined heavy duty fabric belt patch. It won’t come off, not matter how much abuse it gets. This attachment is strong. A locking drawstring holds your water bottle firmly in place.

Look at the black square, odd looking piece on the back in the photo. Fishpond calls it a 4-Way Lash Tab. The lash tab is essential to the beauty of this bottle holder. You can insert webbing, or Velcro strips, and attach it to almost anything imaginable. The webbing or Velcro can go through in either direction. Attach horizontally or vertically. The loop on the back and top is yet another attachment option.

OK, what we have here is a nice looking water bottle holder with a Fishpond vibe. Isn’t that enough for $19.95?

Use a screw and washer, and attach this beverage holder to a cooler or some other hard surface. Drill a hole in the bottom for drainage and leave them outside.

I’ve used mine to hold: Yeti Coldster, Yeti Tumbler, Beer or soft drinks in bottles or cans, Size small soft drinks from McDonalds when traveling, Solo Cups, Bottles of water bought at convenience markets, Coffee in styrofoam cups with lids…the list goes on and on.

This is one of the handiest products made by Fishpond and most people don’t know how versatile they are. What you see in the photo is a cheap water bottle. The possibilities are endless.

Dimensions are 5” tall by 3” Diameter.
