How to Buy Fly Fishing Vests & Packs

With all the things you need for a day of fishing—tippets, accessories, flies, and more—a comfortable vest or pack is essential. Vests offer moderate storage capacity and quick, easy access to small essentials that would otherwise get buried in a pack. Packs offer extended storage for longer fishing missions, but access isn’t quite as easy when you’re out in the water.

Vests
With ample storage and a fit designed for easy casting, vests are the standard when it comes to fly fishing. A vest with a good ratio of small pockets to large pockets makes it easier to organize your gear. Consider a vest with mesh ventilation panels if you fish in particularly hot weather.

Chest & Hip Packs
Chest and hip packs are the smallest storage options. You’ll have to pack wisely, but what you lose in storage capacity you gain in mobility and quick access to small essentials. Stash one of these packs in a larger pack give yourself the option of leaving your larger bag on shore when you wade in.
Slings & Backpacks
Slings go over the shoulder and offer more storage than chest or hip packs but slightly less than backpacks. Backpacks offer the most storage and thus, these packs are primarily useful for overnight trips or long approaches to your favorite fishing spots.
