I’m hoping not to far away to be able to fish again . Went by foot to BCF five minutes around the corner from home . Longer with the walking stick. I was thinking of buying a smaller bag that I can sling over my shoulder take less fishing . BCF had smaller bags nothing to sling over the shoulder . Anyone have a clue as to who sells them . I know when I’m back it will only be short trips . Thanks guys

Anaconda might have something.

What about a wading bag like the alvey ones.

 

I want one that I can carry lures line scissors pliers . But less lures than I carry in my back pack . Thinking of  making it easier to walk when I get back . I do live near anaconda as well but I’ll drive during the week .

Was just looking at these for the yak, PVC for toughness, (Anaconda and BCF seem to have the thinner nylon style ones); $13.50 delivered for 5L

I ended up buying a full backpack dry bag as weight is not an issue.

Not cheap but this looks pretty cool

 

Shimano Game Vest VF-068T – Isofishinglifestyle

 

Also found a cheaper version on a roadside junk pile😉

I needed a tackle storage solution for wading

I just cut the internals out of a soft esky and sewed in the shoulder harness with $2 buckles from Aussie disposals😉

Have you looked at Kmart and such? Surely they would have a bag to suit.

Not yet Softy it came to me yesterday morning about 10 am and I tossed up 5 minute walk to BCF or slightly longer walk to anaconda and get swooped by a pluver . Found out with the stick takes longer than 5 minutes lol . It’s just me thinking if I can’t find what I want I’ll just keep using the back pack .  But once I’m free of the stick I’ll be back sticks not permanent kids want me bait fishing again nope .

Hi Micky. Check out the Shimano Sling tackle bag at BCF. Might be what you want. Regards, HBt.

I was there yesterday didn’t see it the worker didn’t know about it . Early days yet I’ll keep looking a walk there is good exercise .

I too have been struggling to find a shoulder bag in local tackle shops

seems like no one is really stocking them atm

the only place that had one was tackleworld on port road but because it was a ‘trout’ bag in the fly section it had a price tag of nearly $250

i think I will end up ordering this one from online

Hi Micky. Depending on what you want to spend I have been very happy with my Rapala Sling bag. Another option to look at. Last time I was in Tackleworld on Port Road they had a few in 2 dfferent sizes. Regards, HBt.

Thanks HBT

Ok so everyone knows BCF Richmond doesn’t have the shimano sling tackle bag the worker never heard of it . Looked it up one BCF in Adelaide has it Gepps Cross I’m not driving there . Worker suggested buying it online and getting it  delivered not paying for something I haven’t seen . Tomorrow I’ll be halfway to tackleworld I’ll go in take a look at the rapala one . Was a nice walk after hydro therapy this morning though lol

Speaking of tool bags..... - tool belts make a great tackle storage option if you travel light.

They even have a holster for your rod - I still use mine as the preferred option for landbased missions where I'm not carrying alot of lures

I have the Ugly Stick wade bag.. It has a little case for lures in its own tight pocket, has velcro straps for extras, has the front pocket and a ruler, well drained, doesnt hold any water....Its light. It works for me..

I carry folding knife, nail clippers, spare spool, drink, 2 x T-towels, pliers and landing net, phone and camera.. 

Tackleworld Adelaide $59 3years ago.. still as new and its been used heaps...

Ok I looked the bag up it’s a Daiwa trout shoulder bag should do the trick hopefully very soon image.jpeg.ed0157916ceade8c7393be9319029bf3.jpeg

Today using the trout shoulder bag I saw the advantage over back pack I don’t need to take it off to pack up . And in the cold of an Adelaide winter morning makes leaving to go home easier .
