Most of the stuff you taking fishing doesn’t need to stay dry – after all, fishing gear darned well better be OK getting wet.
So rather than using a fully waterproof bag – with either a hard-to-pull submersible zipper or a sorta-cumbersome rolltop – why not use a normal gear bag and then put your ‘must-stay-dry’ stuff in its own little dry pouch?
Seal Line makes some pouches that are perfect for this. Their 6″x8″ pouch can easily fit your wallet, cell phone and other small essentials. You can stick it in most non-waterproof waist packs, backpacks and gear bags – keeping the dry stuff dry, and preserving easy access to your fishing gear that’s OK getting wet anyhow.
These pouches are super durable, and they’ve got a bombproof, easy to use rubber sealing closure.
Give one a go – you can pick ’em up online right here.
