What Packs & Accessories Do I Need?

For traditional fly fishing, a waist pack, sling pack or chest pack can help keep more of what you need at hand when you're already on the river. After all, you'll not only need fishing accessories like fly line and tippet, flies and floatant. You'll also want personal items like a water bottle, sunscreen and energy bars close at hand. If you're going float fishing or fishing from a boat, you may want to choose the Umpqua Waterproof Boat Bag instead. Finally, since you'll want that net to snag every catch, a separate net quiver or pack with a built-in quiver is essential!

How To Choose Between Waist, Sling, Lumber, Vest or Chest Pack?


Waist Pack

A waist pack is an invaluable tool for anglers who enjoy fly fishing, providing several advantages that make angling more comfortable and efficient. Waist packs come in many different shapes and sizes, and are worn like a belt around the waist. They allow people to keep their hands free while they cast and afford them the flexibility to adjust tackle quickly and efficiently. Additionally, fly fishers can keep their most essential items right at hand, easily accessible for whenever they need them most. Waist packs also provide fly fishers with a far greater degree of mobility than traditional tackle boxes or backpacks ever could; allowing you to traverse difficult terrain while traveling light. Those who own a waist pack will attest to their effectiveness as a convenient angling accessory.


Sling Pack

Sling packs are not only lightweight and comfortable to wear, but also allow you to organize your gear in a way that makes it easy to access when necessary. With strategically placed pockets and zippers, a sling style bag offers convenient storage without compromising on comfort. Additionally, the design of a sling pack allows the fly fisher to move through streams and shallow waters with less restriction than if they were carrying a full-sized traditional backpack. This versatility and ease of mobility gives the wearer an unmistakable advantage when fly fishing in diverse terrain.


Lumbar Pack

A lumbar pack is an ideal gear accessory for the fly fisherman on-the-go. Not only is it comfortable to wear, but it provides easy access to essential gear while out on the water. The lumbar pack is designed to be worn around the lower back and waist, so it can easily move with you as you go from spot to spot or fish from shore or a boat. This convenience allows ease of movement that would not be possible with a large backpack or fanny pack. On top of that, a large capacity lumbar pack also helps keep gear organized so all needed materials are within quick reach, allowing for quickness and efficiency when on the water.


Fly Fishing Vests

Fly fishing vests are a great way for fly fishers to keep their tackle and gadgets organized. They come with interior pockets that let you separate out hooks, flies and any other accessories. Many of the interior pockets hold items securely while allowing quick access when they are needed. The interior compartments can be tailored to the fisherman's needs depending on what type of fly fishing he or she prefers. Additionally, most fly fishing vests come with features such as rain covers and water repellent material that allow the angler to stay protected from harsh weather conditions. In short, owning a fly fishing vest offers many advantages when it comes to keeping organized during fly fishing trips.


Chest Packs

Fly chest packs are typically smaller and lightweight, providing an advantage to any fly fisherman walking long distances. This style of pack has plenty of room for storage and are designed to be water resistant. They can easily withstand a splash or two while out on the water. For any serious anglers who walk far and over difficult terrain, this style of pack may be the perfect solution.
