    Re: I知 going sling pack

    I have vests from Simms and Patagonia. The mesh vests are cooler in hot weather but a pain as things get caught in the mesh trying to dig theM out. The Simms vests I have are nice, but I dont like wearing a sleeveless jacket in July. Embrace change! Get rid of your landline phone, cable TV and VCR. But if your interested, I still have two fenwick S glass rods for sale you might be interested in.

    To look good is to fish good

    Re: I知 going sling pack

    Lol ! I’m all for change , had a cell phone since the 80’s when cell phone bills for one phone was over$500 , now homeless people run around with
    Obama phones! You seem offended that I’m trying to dissuade you from
    Your recent purchase of your sling duffel purse .Sling purse if you must , but be forewarned that they look stupid and suck compared to the right vest or chest pack . Inform Beetle and Moosekid when you realize they
    suck and you put it on EBay or FB marketplace so they can bid against
    Each other and you can recoup some of your money , and you can take that money
    and trade that Dinghy in your avatar for a Real raft or Driftboat or keep it and change
    Your forum name to “ The Dinghymaster! “ lol !

    If I remember correctly you used to have a Hyde drift boat, as do I . Now
    A sling purse and a Minimalist dinghy ? The desperate attempt to be accepted by the desperate to be cool millennials ( as they live in their parents basements)still won’t accept you into their club , nor would you want to hang there. Beetle has
    been trying to get in for years.... lol !

    I have a new unused fishpond thunderhead submersible sling pack. It retails for 229 yours for 175 shipped

    Re: I知 going sling pack

    A purse is a purse is a purse whether you wear it as a sling, on your chest or as a fanny pack. I have all three, but prefer to just carry a fly box and extra 5X tippet.

    I have a hip pack...minimal is the way, but a sling pack is an over the shoulder rainbow flag....

    A hip pack = a fanny pack

    Re: I知 going sling pack

    Going "minimal" is one fly box in your hip pocket. The rest just means you have a shopping addiction.

    If you know the waterbody, you should know which flies to put in the box, and even throw in some extras.

    Re: I知 going sling pack

    True Pete, and I wholeheartedly support you guys that never pack a rain jacket so when it starts to rain I have the whole stream to myself. Or net, or forceps, or nippers, or tippet. But if I really want the whole place to myself then I will go and fish the Susquehanna for carp and suckers with hatchman

    To look good is to fish good

    Anytime. Just leave your partner Beetle at home. Lol!

    Don’t get me wrong , I much prefer the Delaware when it’s not swarmed
    With drift boats and guys from the Poconos in rubber dinghy’s with sling
    Purses. I live about 15 minutes from the West Branch. The Susquehanna is in my front yard and does have some nice smallmouth and walleyes and you might even tie into a Musky that would tow you and your Dinghy
    all over , you might want to throw a few Musky flies in your sling duffel Purse .....lol!

    That's minimalist...come on get you hipster terms correct....My "fanny pack" is more comfortable and cooler in 2 ways than your old fart vests...carries plenty of things and my net.
