It’s been a while since I’ve felt motivated to change fishing packs.
I have plenty of opportunities to try out, and use, new fishing packs. To be honest, I’m not usually that interested. I like the pack I’ve been using for years and changing is a headache so I’d have to have a good reason. Newer is not necessarily better and familiar is often best.
I hadn’t had my hands on the new Orvis Waterproof Sling Pack before I was moving all of my gear over from my old pack. It was clear that this wasn’t a special use pack, but one I wanted with me on the water every day. I’ve been fishing out of it for several months now and I couldn’t be happier.
