White River Fly Shop Vanguard Fly Vest
Check out the sleek, free-flowing design of our White River Fly Shop® Vanguard Fly Vest! If you're the kind of angler who believes that a fly fishing vest should not only look great, but also carry and organize everything you could possibly need at mid-stream, read on. From its padded shoulder and collar to the alternative buckle closure for looser wear in warm weather, the Vanguard Vest gives you a comfortable base from which to ply your craft. You'll find a place for all your essentials within its many storage options, which include 8 external zippered front pockets; 6 external hook 'n' loop closure front pockets; 2 large external zippered back pockets; 4 internal zippered pockets; an internal water-resistant personal device pouch; internal tether-snap pocket for your keys; multiple tool attachment points; a deployable rod holder system; and 2 fly holding patches in the drop-down left chest pocket. The vest has weather-resistant 100% nylon shell with 100% polyester mesh breathable liner; and it also includes replacement zipper pulls with chartreuse strings—extra "eye candy."

Very functional Fly VestI have had this vest for about 2 years. If loaded correctly, it works perfectly. The velcro pockets were made for leaders, strike indicators, sinkers, etc. The zip pockets directly behind the velcro pockets work best for flys kept in a separate case. I keep small flys and nymphs in the left side and large flys in the right side. Streamers are kept in the high zip pocket on the left which conveniently comes with 2 slotted holders for these larger baits. I keep an extra reel in the zip pocket behind the pockets with smaller flys. Misc. stuff is keep in the other zip pockets that do not require access as often as the velcro and zip pockets on the front. All in all, this is a very functional vest--IF LOADED CORRECTLY-- at a very reasonable price.

Will help you loose tippet and fliesBought this last year. Quality of manufacture is good, design is terrible. The velcro on pockets only lines up if pockets are empty. As soon as you put something in the pocket, only the tiniest bit of velcro will line up to hold the pocket closed. Inevitably the pockets pop open on the river and you spend your day double checking to see what you've lost. Never thought a $99 vest could be this bad.
Thank you for choosing Bass Pro Shops. There is a loop located on the inside left of the vest. Unsnap it and pull it down below the bottom edge of the vest so it can be accessed with the vest closed, place the butt of the fly rod in to it. The mid-section of the rod is to be secured under the Vanguard logo tab, located on the upper right of the chest; one side of the tab is secured by hook n’ loop so you can pull it open and then close it over the rod to hold it in place. Now you are hands free so you can work on the line/lure.
