Orvis guide sling pack Vest

They made some updates this year based on feedback from last year. You can fit all the gear you'd need, rain jacket, lunch etc. If you carry a lot of flies with me for some reason - it's really preference but it's never a bad thing to have options.

There's a separate water bottle holder on the outside so you aren't taking up space with it in your pack. Tried the Simms waist/chest pack, and 2 other types in the past 3 years, and you can't see ever switching from the Orvis unless you want to down-size.

Simms G3 Guide Vest.

This is one of Simms largest fly fishing vests they make, with its super durable nylon woven fabric. With DuPontTM Teflon® water repellent finish, the Simms guide vest is classed as one of the finest fly fishing vests on the market today.

The vest is meant to go over layers of clothing. It has an elastic/drawstring bottom that you can really snug it down when needed (ie summer = no coat) but plenty of room to fit over warm jacket in winter. Ended up being too big/loose for me- great quality vest though

This vest incorporates built in retractors, that use a handy magnetic docking station to stop them flapping about when casting. And with 22 pockets, make this vest there most technologically designed and highest capacity they have ever produced.

Featuring a breathable padded collar, and shoulder stretch panels made from a durable polyester mesh. This Simms vest is extremely comfortable, and provides excellent ventilation for the wearer.

When using the G3 fishing vest, you will find that there is no need to make any decisions as to what fishing tackle you can take. Or what you have to leave behind for your trip, with its massive storage areas, using 22 pockets means this vest is easily capable of holding all your fly fishing equipment.

The cost of the Simms G3 guide fishing vest is around $199.00, which does sound a lot for a fishing vest. But once you see the quality and storage space associated with this vest, then you will understand why most of the fly fishing guides around the world prefer this type of vest.

The use of a Sling Pack in the flats.

The thought is that it is higher on your body and you can wade deeper to get into flats or get closer to drop-offs, etc. Either of them can work really well, the Slings as just a coldwater pack -they adapt to all fishing conditions.

Waist pack, or a sling pack, spey fishing 90% of the time im swinging, and dont want the bulkiness of a chest pack or vest in front. A convertible pack is nice to use the neck strap and keep it on the side like a sling pack but clipped.

Simms Fishing Products Continued innovation in all of our categories. Sims new Fall 2016 line is great as and they have great things in store beyond that waders & boots and vests as well.

Headwaters Packs

Some people still prefer vests and they are a vibrant category still to this day. However, some people like to remove the weight from their shoulders to the waist area and have it move out from the front of their body to their back when casting. To each his own, however. Simms new line of Headwaters Packs is awesome, though.

Riverworks Fly vests

Riverworks Fly vests looks good.They trying to catch the angler with that and no thought about the nuteral colours required to fool a trout in low summer flows

There are different coloured zips and pullers however we've carefully chosen the colours to be in the "spring growth" spectrum of bright greens. If the whole vest was that colour then you probably would have a problem but with only touches of a colour found in nature it's not such an issue.

The splashes of colour also break up your solid form thereby adding an element of camouflage effect to the garment.

Riverworks product designers are keen anglers (and hunters) and so they put a lot of thought into each piece of kit to make sure it works and looks good at the same time.


the Greys Strata Fly Vest

Strata Fly Vest

This suits more fly anglers just fine as they prefer lighter waistcoats, also the extra large size weighs just under lib. In fact many lightweight fly vests do not stand up to the wear and tear we all flyfishers put them through, but here, being a quick drying nylon outer is no problem here.

Without any compromising on the storage capability the new Greys fishing Strata fly waistcoat, which replaces the GRXi fly vest design, has been made as light as possible.

It is quite a short fishing vest design that dropped just to your waist and the armholes were of a good size, so did not restrict your arm movement when fishing or casting.

The pockets of Greys vest have zip and Velcro closures or elasticated tops and they all incorporate a polyester mesh to some degree

The new Greys waistcoat has a half-length main zip and a padded knitted type
collar. Storage options are plentiful there are ten pockets of various shapes
and sizes on the front, some of the vest pockets are roomy enough to take a 7 x 4 inch accessories or fly box and more important: which keeps everything
light and also means you can see the contents.

On the back is large full width cargo pocket for storing a lightweight waterproof storing. There's also a small quick-release clip on a webbing tab and a D-ring on the back of the neck.

Excellent value and available in sizes S-XXXL in a
two tone black-olive.

GRXi STRATA fly vest

Greys GRXi fly vest has certainly been popular, but it’s been around long time and what people look for in a fly vest has evolved, so the Strata has some key updates – for example Hardy’ve updated the pocket configuration, and added a tippet leash to keep your spools close to hand. Having said that, if you’re happy with the GRXi vest that’s great. Greys are experts at upgrading to a product that is no better than the previous offering, 3 section to 4 section grxi rods - case in point.

On the GRXi/GRXi+ rods – feedback has been that the majority of people feel that 4 pc rods have the edge over 3 pcs, but of course when it comes to rod actions and ‘feel’ there’s always a degree of personal preference involved. Of course the best item of tackle is the one that suits your fishing style.


The Slough Creek Fly Fishing Vest by Trout Pro Store

In fact, fly vest is a combination of a technical backpack and fly fishing vest.
The system of the "Perfect Fly" Creek Fly Vest provides the all storage space, the pockets and attachment devicesfor everything you need for fishing or a trip.

Comment from a recent purchase. "Just purchased the above named fly fishing pack and couldn't be happier with it. I wore a traditional vest for many years and lately I was having neck and lower back aches after a full day of fishing. I tried this vest pack to see if it took and distributed the weight better. Wore it all day Wednesday fishing on the Chatuga DH section and was amazed. I carried more in it than I normally carried (eg. sandwich, cookies, water bottle, raincoat) fishing for a day and no back ache or neck ache and it is easier to access the important stuff like flies, leaders etc. Good product and will recommend it to my buddies ."

Vest Color

Any vest color is not a good idea. Actually not a bad idea, Dark colors and dark water colours perhaps camouflage colors to avoid the wary eyes of trout. Today many stores now carry darker, ¨Olive¨, ¨Navy¨ and ¨Brown¨ "fish catch" colors. Tan is a good choice for open waters, because it is less visible to trout and also cooler for hot Sunday.
