The discerning fly fisher’s ultimate luggage packing hack!
Working out what you need to take on any particular fly fishing trip is the process you need to go through which will ultimately guide the luggage solutions you choose. And you can save a lot of time in that decision making process by following our awesome luggage tips and hacks.
When thinking about fly fishing luggage solutions, tick all these boxes!
Follow these fabulous fly-fishing gear tips to ensure a great time on the river:
Always take a self-contained camping kit, because you never know.
Pack a fly rod that’s designed for travel, breaking down unto three or four pieces and stored in a protective tube along with a few flies and floatants.
For check in don’t go lower than a 60-litre backpack. For your carry on luggage, simply use your fly fishing daypack.
Don’t be a fashion victim, dress for comfort… a polar fleece jacket, hemp shirt, drip-dry polyester trousers, crocs and socks, you name it!
When flying, put as much of your weight as possible in your checked luggage, particularly when you have multiple connections to reach your destination.
Your wash bag staples should include just the bare minimum: a toothbrush, small tube of toothpaste and some floss.
Download the “go to” fly fishing and travel apps… they come in very handy, plus of course just make conversation with locals to get the low down on the region.
Make your hotel room feel like home by spreading your wet tent and waders over the bed and chairs to dry.
Make your packing resolution to ensure you dry out all your camping gear before arriving at the hotel… you’ll probably never get round to it, but give it a go!
