Gear Review: A day pack by Fishpond

A daypack for the serious hike-in angler

This backpack stores a ton if packed right and there’s just enough padding so you won’t get stabbed by one of the reels during your hike in. Your two-rods go with everything you’ll ever need for the day. For a test drive, visit your local fly shop and swing the Westwater Roll Top Backpack up on your back – play with its zippers, click tite’s and ogle over the features. Convincingly, Fishpond is steadfast in its commitment to serious quality.

The video and commentary definitively confirm the in-action worth of this pack. It is the perfect stay dry no matter what – for the day wandering fly fisher (two rod tube holders) that wants everything he or she needs.

Like every Fishpond product, it’s a bit pricey, but their stuff is so good you know your granddaughter, who’s already into fly fishing and hiking with you, covets it.
