In the good ‘ol days, anglers had a choice between vests, vests or vests to house their fly fishing gear. Then, the fanny packs came. Now, Fishpond has introduced their Westwater Sling and it’s a whole new ball game. This is Charlie and Jim’s favorite pack. Their Westwater Slings have been everywhere from Colorado to Christmas Island to the Bahamas. Why? Because it just plain works. It’s light (1.3 pounds), roomy (800 cubic inches), and offers the functionality of a backpack and comfort of a sling. It’s comfy waist strap helps out Jim’s lousy back and even fully loaded (including hauling a 10-weight rod for GTs) the pack is perfect for wading the flats. Charlie likes the fact that you simply pull it around and there’s the zipper for ready access to the main compartment. Plus, it’s not overdone with mini-compartments all over the place. And, it’s great for staying out of the way during your day on the water.
