Default Re: Fly Fishing Backpack

I too am a diabetic and need to carry extra gear on fishing trips. I used hip packs from Fishpond both large (Guide Pack to Old School model and small Orvis safe Passage). I also used a Fishpond chest pack trying to minimalize, but they were either too heavy with all my gear or too small for the diabetic necessities.

I recieved an Orvis Guide Slingpack and absolutely love it! it is roomy enough for my extras and the outside pockets easily carry two large and two medium fly boxes. It is comfortable to wear and easy to get into.

The extras like waterbottle holder and tippet carrier are fantastic additions. I can easily carry my monitors and snacks without any discomfort. I do add a small Lanyard to hold nippers, floatant, etc... I highly recommend this product.
