- Fine Little Day Pack Review by Douglas
OverallA fine little pack for deeper wading & stealth when down on your knees for spooky trout while creeping-up to cast. It holds all of my essentials, including my phone, head-lamp, and small camera. Perfect pack for a day's fishing when hiking & needing to minimize your flies to only what it necessary (with enough space for dries & nymphs), and easy access. Fit well in my suitcase while on the road. I didn't like the side attachment options, and found that my fly line had a tendency to get caught-up on them, especially in the wind & at night. . . it would have been nice to have them incased in material like on their vests, which I love! It is nice to see that the newer version has a type of "D-loop" as part of the zipper? - from what I can see. My older version does not have a "D-loop" & I had to make one my-self to hang my net. It is nice to see a velcro section on this version too, which the older version does not have which will fit a SIMMS fly patch. Nice to see the improvements in this version!
