    I use the orvis sling pack. My usual day of fishing is a short walk to the water and then going at it.

    This pack is great. Its very comfortable to wear. I can push it back and out of my way. It holds my tippet spools, tools, three to four medium sized fly boxes, snack, drink container or two, and extra little bags of this and that that no matter how I try I cannot keep out of the pack even though I seldom use any of it. It also has a few extra pockets for my knot tying tool and hemostat.

    I dont carry a net with me but Im betting a handy person could figure out how to attach one and keep it out of their way until needed.

    This pack has been updated this year. Its a little larger and has added features like a strap to help hold the hemostat or other small tools more securely.

    For the money it is a great pack. I have had it for at least three years and have beat it up but its like a timex watch.. takes a lickin and keeps on tickin

    Thanks for all the great info everyone! I really appreciate it. I am going to go out and try a bunch out before I commit to any thing.

    As a newbie, what are the must have features that everyone looks for in a sling pack, chest pack, or back? I'm really trying to do my due diligence here and as with bass fishing and bow hunting I like to do a lot of research before I drop cash!

    Thanks again!

    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.
