Cabela's Sling Pack - Budget Style - Fly fishing

I've been looking at sling packs for quite sometime now. I am somewhat budget minded when it comes to purchasing most things. So, I bought this sling pack from Cabela's. Thank goodness too. I tried it out today in the yard as I cast my rod. What a difference it makes not to have a strap over your casting shoulder. If you scroll down a bit on this page, there is a product video. It's just what I need to dig something out out of my pack without skipping my backpack off.

I've got some other reviews coming.  Just bought some wading shoes and I still have to cast a few flies on my new rod.


  1. Josh, I am very budget minded when it comes to fly fishing tackle and most other things that have to do with fly fishing also. Happy your first impressions are good here. I, actually, went to the Cabela's store to purchase one of these a while back, but, they were out of stock. I will try again.

    1. Mel, you can order it online and have it shipped to the store for Free at Cabela's. I've done this with tying materials.

    2. Josh, thanks for the reminder. That probably is the best plan since I could save some gas money. Cabela's is an hour drive from where I live.
