There is nothing quite like a great “fish story” that includes tales of adventure, travel and discovery.

Choosing the Right Water Proof Day Bag and Hip Packs

Posted by yellowdog on Aug 2, 2017 9:30:00 AM

Sometimes getting to that distant trout honey hole requires some questionable, deeper-water wading. Perhaps the surf you are fishing is splashing and rolling over the top of you. Maybe, like some of us, you have a tendency to lose your balance when walking over rocks. At some point in your fishing experience, you will encounter situations where you or your equipment are going to get submerged when playing around water. These days, anglers are bringing a lot more than fly tackle out on their fishing trips. Often rain gear, a dry change of clothes, phones, or cameras are now common articles of gear in possession of the prepared angler. Fishing companies have heard the call from proactive anglers about the growing need to create bags that are not only useful and durable, but also highly water resistant or completely 100% waterproof. With a grand applause, the age of welded waterproof bags has finally arrived.
