I'll second, or third, or fourth the W&J packs. Check mrfc.com and click on clearance. They have a few that are half off.

Fishpond makes some nice packs but also take a look at William Joseph. I've been really happy with my gear from Willy J. They've updated most of their gear to have magnetic closures so you should be able to find good deals on the older models.


I like the fishponds. You get what you pay for.

Look at the Downstream with attachements. If you want to spend a few more dollars look at the Richardson with attachements. I have both and will never wear a vest.

I didn't mean anything negative towards Fishpond, my brother uses one and it's very nice. I wanted to give another option and I believe that William Joseph makes gear which is just as nice.

Packs and vests are a huge pain... get a Hardy Bag brother! A bit of an investment for a lifetime of use!! I think I have owned about every vest and/or pack made, and the shoulder bag is the only thing I have found that I cannot do without!

I've never been the vest type of dude. Started off with an old school Orvis fanny pack with 3 sections around the waste.

I then moved to the chest pack, which I still miss sometimes, as it was small and comfortable, but still had a compartment in the back for carrying water/beer/vodka.

I've since moved solely to the wading jacket. You can't go wrong with these in the winter/early spring/fall.

Now, in the summer, I've been using the old fanny pack but down to one compartment, as all I really need is a leader and a box of dries with a spool of 5x mono.

this summer, I'm transitioning to the LANYARD for summer fishing... I just got out bidded on ebay for one that would carry all necessities, so I'm still looking.

What do you do with it when you have to wade over your waist? Hang it in a branch with your bloomers?

Man-purse!:) Ok... i can handle that! Deep wading is no problem though. It's almost 100% waterproof, and mine came with a waterproof liner just incase. Shorten the strap if you need to... then dive in!

The one that I have is like a back pack with only one shoulder strap, it has two different staps a short one for your chest if you are in higher water and a longer one if you want to sling it behind you like a backpack. It's a White River pack.

I still like the confluence by Williams and Joseph. About the safety issue, I'm a women and yes it puts my pack out there a bit more but I've never had it be a safety issue. Just don't look down and you won't miss what's ahead.

Also how many flies do all of you carry? I just take the ones that work.
