For 2019 we have put a lot of effort into designing products that extend our current categories of; Submersible, Core Fishing, Travel, Lifestyle, Nets, Accessories and FP Field– the new product enhances enhances all of these collections with unique Fishpond innovation. When premiering our new products there was a lot of excitement about the all new Switchback Belt System, Westbank Wader Belt, Thunderhead Chest Pack, and Thunderhead Roll Top Duffel. That enthusiasm lead to Fishpond bringing home four awards at the end of the show!
See these new products and the rest of the Fishpond line of products from your local retailer.
The Thunderhead Chest Pack delivers a waterproof carry system created to purposefully load all of the essential gear for a day on the water, including a net holster that seats your long or short handled net perfectly. Bring along what you need, instead of what you have. While it’s a great standalone piece, it also integrates into our backpacks and can be lashed to your boat providing quick secure storage for wet rides. Built out of our trusted 1680d TPU coated recycled Cyclepond nylon, this clean chest pack is built to protect your gear from the elements.
Nothing puts a damper on a long river trip like a bag full of wet soggy gear. The new Roll Top Duffel keeps your gear dry so you can slip on a dry warm layer at camp and fish the home pool while dinner cooks over the fire. Adventure always has a way of serving up plenty
of unexpected twists, flips, and turns, so make sure you pack accordingly. Constructed out of our signature 1680d TPU coated recycled Cyclepond nylon, which has proven itself to be bombproof.
Since our first year we have been turning the fly fishing industry upside-down with innovation and change. As we hit our 20 year anniversary, it was only fitting to take something as simple as a wading belt and reinvent it’s functionality. This system includes a pack that slides independently from back to front, a molded net holster for long-handled nets, a shoulder strap with tool and fly attachment, and options to attach our new molded wading staff pouch, drink holder, and Quickshot rod holder. Functional and purposeful. Can be worn with vests, chest packs or other gear of choice.
Why just have a belt to secure your waders and support your back? We thought about what other functions a belt might serve and we created a purposeful spot for your net, attachment slots for a Quikshot rod holder, a floating “rail” where you can strap on packs, water bottle holders, wading staffs, and all sorts of river accessories. The game has changed, and you can expect more.
When the fishing is hot there is a lot going on and you have to be able to multitask to keep up with all the activity. The Cross-Current Chest pack is designed to keep all your essentials and boxes organized, keeping them high on your body at the ready. Slide your net out of the integrated net slot, scoop your fish, release it, grab your dry shake out of the magnetic drop down workstation, and get back those moments we all love to celebrate.
After the alarm goes off in absolute darkness…..
grab a mug of coffee, then your gear bag by the door and step into the wild. It’s comforting to know you’ll have everything you need as the Flattops Wader Duffel has a purposeful and ventilated lower storage compartment for wet waders and boots, while the upper storage compartment is perfect for vests, packs, clothing, and the not-to-forget snacks. This is the perfect companion to the Dakota Rod and Reel Case, so you can focus on getting out the door rather than wondering where you put that other boot.
Wildness connects us to the core of our purpose and makes us recognize our individual strengths. We can all make sure we are doing something every time we are out. The PIOPOD’s are an angler essential that is designed for micro trash to be packed out and disposed of appropriately. Available in two sizes so you can pack it out regardless if your are in a drift boat, skiff, car, local stream, or backpacking deep in the backcountry. Help do your part to keep our wild places free of trash.
Fly Fishing takes us to beautiful, wild and rugged places in pursuit of our finned friends. Just hiked in a few miles to a beautiful stretch of water? Inevitably there will be trout rising on the far side of the river. Take a second to open your staff, wade in confidently through swift currents, and present your fly. Don’t miss a step and have to shortchange your day and hike out wet.
The sweeping round curved brim and the pinched crown of a cowboy hat was possibly the most defining symbol of the American West. This hat was developed to provide maximum protection from the sun and stand up to daily abuse. At Fishpond we have lived under these hats for decades and wanted to add our own spin to the American tradition with our Eddy River hat, complete with Fishpond’s signature Brown Trout jacquard webbing hat band.
Can I borrow some floatant dude? Where’s yours? I don’t know – I think it fell out of my pack somewhere on the trail. Well it’s going to cost you some tasty beverages after we’re done. Hmm. See…if you had a Fishpond Floatant Bottle Holder, casually hooked to a cord loop or D-ring on your vest or pack, you wouldn’t have been forced into such a deal.
Dogs have repeatedly asked us for this, and we listened. Don’t give your dog an inferiority complex on the river by strutting around in your new Fishpond pack while he has to wear that ratty old collar. And you wonder why she keeps pulling? Because she’s embarrassed by that old leash.
Updated for 2019 we beefed up the Quickshot unit to ensure that 10, 11, and 12wt rods are held securely in the tropical heat. This is closest thing to having a full time rod caddie on the water with you. A pack of GT’s at 2 o’clock 120’ out and they are coming in hot! Get that bonefish rod out of your hand and grab the 12wt that is neatly tucked onto the side of your pack. With the pinch of a buckle, the switch has been made and it’s time to strip line, make the shot, and do battle. Having the right tool for the job when you need it is crucial for success. This is why we have designed a clean system that keeps your fully rigged rods fully secured, at the ready, and completely out of your way while fishing. From your favorite trout stream to far-off angling destinations, we have your success in mind.
