Not those two, but I have been using a Fishpond Summit sling for a few years now and love it. Slings are great if you can force yourself to not over fill them.
That looks almost identical to the pantagonia sling pack I was looking at. Do you know if that Fishpond bag can fit a pack of 6” roboworms in the front hardshell pocket? Also I seen it had a net holder, have you tried using that? I appreciate the help.
That’s the bag that looks like a messenger bag right? It looks like it would work really good for what I’m wanting, but was wondering does it have a spot for your pliers or line cutters? Also if you don’t mind, does it have a separate compartment for a tackle box and a separate one for soft plastics? Thanks for the help guys!

Some real world pics from the other side of the world... They've been really good to me with following me everywhere, I have fabric guarded them sot hey stay clean & dry in the rain (or ever need a wipe afterwards) for the last 4 odd plus years.Bbrotz wrote: ↑Wed Jun 16, 2021 10:49 pmThat’s the bag that looks like a messenger bag right?

The front pocket is easily big enough for 3-4 packs of 6” robos. My net has a super short handle, so it doesn’t stay in the holder well, but a longer one would work great.
If you would like I can grab pics this weekend.
Yeah if you could that would be awesome. Thanks
The clamshell is pretty big, Plano 3500 for reference. It can easily fit 3-4 bags of plastics. The little pockets great for small baggies of assorted TT and the pocket behind the zipper has some dividers in it as well.
The main pocket. It just fits a Plano 3600, like you have to insert is an exact way every time. Annoying at first, but I don't even notice it now. There is room for one 3600 and one 3500 or three 3500 boxes. Two 3600 boxes will not fit.
The rear pocket. It will not fit a 3600. There is good padding between it and the outside of the sling, but lumpy stuff will still dig into your back a little. I use to for leader spools and a little first aid kit.
Top stash pocket. You put your weed in there. Or a power bar or whatever. Big enough for a large phone.
Water bottle holder. It's not good for much more than a 12-16oz bottle.
The strap attachment points. I had a pair of pliers and nippers rigged up there, it ruled and I need to replace them.
The bottom attachment points. I added those webbing straps so I can secure my rain jacket or whatever.
I have had this pack for 4-5 years and love it. It's by far my most used pack and for any time I don't need more then 12-16oz of water it's my go-to. I usually keep it more kitted out but I am in the middle of reloading everything. I am building up a second fishing pack out of an Osprey Talon 11 for longer/hotter days and am trying to figure out the the ideal loadout for each.
I'm an enormous bag dork, thank you for your time.
It’s secured to the back of my Jackson Big Tunas seat on floats. I like being able to hydrate while continuing to cast/read water.
Everyone’s needs are different.
I’ll have to keep that pocket in mind
But on a serious note, thank you guys so much for the pictures and help. It really made my decision a lot easier. I just put it an order for the fishpond summit sling. Seems perfect for what I was looking for
