Fishpond

Why I have not written a post regarding Fishpond products is beyond me. In Travel Rods 2014, I did write a paragraph regarding one of their products which I have now owned for quite a while.

Fishpond Rod Tote
"..... I have gone almost exclusively to 4-piece fly rods for the purpose of travel. In a Fishpond travel case I can get three 4-piece rods up to 9 1/2 feet, multiple reels, a rain jacket, leaders and 2 pair of sunglasses and it fits into just about any airplane overhead. Beats getting a rod broken by a baggage handler (the airline will NOT replace for cost) or lost before you reach your destination. I even have a 7-piece 9 foot travel rod with great action which I occasionally throw into my Fishpond as well."

Fishpond Duffle w/ Bottom Dry Storage
Well this Christmas, my lovely wife purchased me a Fishpond gear bag. I must admit, I would have preferred a more muted color, but it is quite functional. My original Fishpond travel rod tote was recommended by an IDFFA and fly fishing friend from Pennsylvania. He was right and it is the best tote I have ever seen for 4 piece rods, reels, etc. I have now had mine 3 years and it is quite durable. It is beginning to fray a little on the handles and corners, but once repaired and it has functionally passed away, I will replace with another.

I did own a much larger gear bag again with dry storage for wet boots and waders in the bottom such as this, but the bag weighed 35 pounds without any gear. This one from Fishpond is very lightweight (1.9 pounds) and functional. If not overly stuffed, it might also fit in an airplane overhead as does my rod tote. They are perfect for travel. This one also has a fold out mat on which to sit to change your wet gear when exiting your favorite river. Keeps your gear clean, so all one does when returning home is to lay your stuff out to dry.

Check them out at Fishpond USA.com. Their stuff is a little pricy, but seem durable enough. Once you have all of the basics, ask for a Fishpond piece for each birthday, anniversary and Christmas. You'll have all you need in no time.

Hard takes, tight lines, sore arms, screaming reels and all the fly fishing gear of which you could ever dream.
