Re: Bags / Packs
chart33, everyone has different needs.
As a guide I have a lot of stuff to carry.
But the things that upset are.....
Things that stick-out to catch line when casting.
Packs that don't drain if you swim.
Bright colors to drive fish away.
Slow access, or stuff falling out.
If it's too big, you carry too much.
If it's too small you don't carry enough.
Packs that supposed to have water resistant zippers, that aren't.
Too much toughness that adds weight.
Too light, so it falls apart.
Bottom line though, no matter which you buy, you will want others.
A bit like women, careful what you ask for.
Ultimately, it's not catching fish that satisfies, but knowing how.
