Packing Tips for Traveling Anglers
Mike Huffman

Most of us tend to bring more gear on our fishing trips than we actually need. With ever-increasing restrictions on luggage, we're challenged to do a better job organizing our "essentials."

Although we manage to cram quite a bit, including non-essentials (like clothing), into one or two honking bags, we usually arrive at our destination with further organizational challenges.

One excellent solution is to pack a few smaller, empty bags that can be loaded with enough gear for those 1-day or 1/2-day excursions from your base camp. If those excursions are by boat, or if rainy weather is possible, at least one of those smaller units should be a dry bag.

When flying a connecting leg by bush plane or smaller charter aircraft, you may be required to divide your giant bag into several smaller pieces for purposes of balancing the load.

In all, more traveling anglers are adding various small to medium bags to their collection to use in conjunction with their larger rolling bags.
