I have used an old school type backpack for a few years now for fishing trips. I usually have it loaded up with some fly boxes, ziploc bags for fish fillets when chasing reds, and some extra line, fillet knife, etc. Well it has seen better days and so I am hoping to move up to something a little more comfortable and useful. I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations? Any packs geared towards fishing (and fly fishing)? Earlier at Fred's I was just looking at some packs that have a semi internal frame, a hydration bladder, etc. - similar to day hike packs you'd see at REI. They looked like they could definitely work, but just thought I'd ask for other opinions.
I did pick up a pair of new Korker wading boots tonight though. Super comfortable and have the soles that you can switch out between rubber and felt.
