The earlier model has somewhat different stablizer straps on the sides (by the water bottle carriers) that I actually use to carry a second flyrod, which angles back and upward on my left side. Works great in open areas and while wading where you want to have a second rod handy rigged with something different, but have to take it out in brushy areas. I also installed a magnetic release on the shoulder strap for carrying my net, which I've found very handy as well. There are two models now with different capacities to choose from, but can't tell how well the second-rod carrying feature I use will still work with them or not. I carry 8 or so fly boxes in mine, so it has good capacity for fly fishing, not so sure how it would be for volume of spin tackle, however. JAX has them if you happen to be up in the Loveland or FC area.
Very cool and getting close. I am going to look into this.

$100 bucks to carry a few lures around your ass Been using the same $10 Wally world backpack for 15 years. Holds a small soft sided 6 pack cooler and a couple boxes of lures no problem. Heck even a little room left over for chew, smokes and bug spray.

Cool, I might do that tonight only I will be adding a rain poncho.

Have you ever fly fished with a nice pack? It is heavenly. Everything you need on your waist. No need to carry around a bag or a backpack, you have everything you need on your hip. I am looking for something I can keep in my car. Grab it, grab my fishing pole, and head out on foot looking for good spots. I find that I want to be more mobile but end up generally stationary as it is a pain to carry around a bag and move.

So tonight I may give the backpack a try. Just saying that a hip pack could be sweet.

Here's a couple backpacks designed for fishing, although I imagine one would want to take them off and drop it on the shore while casting. Cool features are the horizontal storage space for the 3600 Plano boxes and the insulated upper compartment for drinks and bait.

Often times you see Kayak fishers with a milk crate that has a 3 piece rod holder zip tied to it. That would not be a bad option as well, especially when using more than 1 rod. Just put on a couple d-rings, a shoulder strap and away you go.

I bet there are some acutally fanny packs out there that could fit a couple 8x4" or so plato boxes,or just buy a satchel and rock that shit.

This is a light, good sized waist pack you can get Plano 3500's into easily. You can check them out at either Cabela's front range stores.
