Everyone needs some type of way of carrying their fishing tackle. While sometimes a normal fishing tackle box will work, sometimes you need more. If you are a real active outdoorsman, sometimes you need a good way to carry your tackle when your on the move. As a person that kayak fishes, I needed something that I can move around easily. A fishing tackle backpack was an option that fit that need.
Bassdash is a company that designs a lot of different fishing tackle products. I have previously used a few of their products and had trust that their product would be made of good quality material. Bassdash has been known to stand behind their product and that says a lot for their reputation.
Dimensions of the bag are approximately 15.7”(L) x 7.9”(W) x 19.7”(H). The main compartment is adjustable and can be divided into 2 separate inner compartments with movable clapboard in the main compartment. The top compartment is to store personal items; Lower compartment holds up to 3 large 3600-size (10.71” x 7” x 1.65”) plano style tackle boxes.
There is a total of 9 different compartments in this backpack. A key one to me is the sunglass compartment. This is a hard shell compartment specifically designed to hold your sunglasses and keep them protected. The sides have matching compartments that can store fishing gear that can be easily reached. I personally like the bigger compartment on the side because I can fit a compact firearm. The top compartment is a large compartment that can be used for bigger items or clothes if you are going camping.
On the back top compartment, there is a rain cover that allows you to quickly cover the backpack up if it starts to rain. The backpack is not waterproof, so I have replaced the plano boxes that came with it with waterproof boxes.
A key aspect for any backpack is the straps. I found the straps to be great quality. The stitching seemed to be strong and a lot of them were double stitches where they should be. The straps and the part where your back hits the backpack is padded. There is a pull straps to tightening the straps. There is a middle clip that keeps the straps from moving around. I am a little worried on the quality there. The clip is very small and might easily break.
I was disappointed that there wasn’t a place to attach a fishing rod. I am sure this is something that could be modified to attach it with a little velcro strap.
Overall, I believe this is a great quality product. The backpack is made of great quality material and will last a long time. It has a lot of features that will meet the needs of most fisherman. I am glad to own this product.
