Vests, packs and bum bags:
Long before hi-tech waist, chest, sling packs and bumbags loaded with fly fishing specific features came along, the main choice fly fishers had for carrying their gear on the stream was a simple vest. Some anglers still prefer the simple vest, but for the more contemporary fisher today's technology is a treat!
Bum bags and slings have become very popular in recent times. They come in many different sizes and configerations, most are made from water resistant materials and some are fully waterproof, the larger bumbags usually come with a shoulder strap to help distribute waight.
Slings are very popular with saltwater flats fishermen as they are easier to access compared to a back pack.
