Multiple packets on the Polyester Fly Fishing Sling Pack to store stuff and a Fly Patch in the front pocket. The 2 packets in the back are large for bigger gear or more stuff. The sling pack is a good option for those who need more than a chest pack but don’t quite need a backpack.

Nice article on my favorite way to carry my fly gear, the sling pack. Vedavoo nailed it, while Orvis misses the boat. Why? You ask. Well tell me where Orvis and Vedavoo put the weight of their respective packs. Yup! Vedavoo puts it on the off casting shoulder (left) and Orvis is still under the misconception that fly fisherman don't give a rats posterior about being on the water all day and having a pack load on the same shoulder as the arm they cast with. In the famous words of Homer Simpson, "DOH!" I'm a sling pack user for years now and would never use a pack that put ANY weight on my casting arm. I'm a streamer/nymphing fanatic and wore my casting arm out, let alone when I had my sling pack on my right shoulder. When I tried switching to a left shoulder sling pack orientation i found that a majority of the fly fishing industries sling packs all were right shoulder oriented. They claim it was universal but anyone who has tried them knows what a line of crap that is. I'm really starting to be impressed with Vedavoo's thought process on gear and thanks to your review I will be seriously looking at a purchase.
