If you’re looking for a waterproof pack that’s a bit bigger than your usual angling hip pack but smaller than a backpack, consider the Patagonia Stormfront Sling. This supreme sling bag stays close to your back without getting in your way, regardless of whether you’re spay casting or going it single-handed. Mesh where it matters means the only thing slimy you should feel are the scales of yet another fish you’re getting ready to toss back into the water. Crafted from fully welded, 800D nylon, this bag doesn’t sport a single stitched seam. No stitches means no teensy-tiny openings through which water may creep in. The fabric is coated, both inside and out, to keep H2O at bay and to give the bag an extra dose of durability. The TiZip main zipper won’t let water in. The exterior stash pocket is the perfect place for sunscreen, while the interior stash pocket stands ready for your wallet and keys. The bag slings over your shoulder and a simple, single clasp comes around front to secure an adjustable strap, thus stabilizing the bag against your body. Two lash points serve as rod holders when they’re front and center. Move the lashes towards the side to carry wet waders without constantly getting whacked in the bag of the legs. Several smaller attachment points on the shoulder strap are perfect for holding hemostats, nippers, and additional tippets.
