Fishpond Summit Sling 2.0 Pack In The Wild
Fishpond Summit Fly Fishing Sling Pack Features Review:
Each Summit Sling is made using completely recycled nylon, adding new functionality without using new resources.
The Summit Sling 2.0 will accommodate all your gear for everything from a quick after-work session, to a full day of fishing in the backcountry. It’s slender profile and sling configuration keeps everything tucked up and out of the way on your back, so you aren't snagging on everything as you make your way to the water. The sling is designed to be worn on your right shoulder, with the pack resting on your left hip when stowed on your back, keeping it out of the way while casting. If you are looking for an ambidextrous fly fishing sling pack, take a look at the Fishpond Flathead Sling Pack.
The colors are intentionally muted, so as not to spook wild trout. The padding and breathable mesh do a great job of keeping the hiking angler cool on hot summer days. With its integrated net slot, your landing net will always be within reach, but the vertical orientation prevents it from snagging on limbs and brush too,
Swing the pack from sitting on your back to your chest, and every pocket is quickly accessible, with the zippers positioned upwards. The fly cargo bench will now be right in front of you, allowing you to easily switch flies and even set your tippet on it while you re-rig.
Attachment points for accessories and critical fly fishing tools abound. You can attach them just about anywhere on this sling pack.
Even your water bottle is within a short reach for a quick sip, holding most Hydroflask and Nalgene varieties, up to your typical 32oz container size.
This pack is also perfect for wading saltwater anglers, and any other type of wade fishing, in tailwaters or freestone streams.
The tools and accessories shown are optional and for display only. Recommended accessories include the Fishpond Swivel Retractor, Fishpond Headgate Tippet Holder, Fishpond Arrowhead Retractor, and the Fishpond Confluence Fishing Net Tether/Release.
