I tend to take a rucksack when fishing during the winter season, one reason being I hate having tackle in my pockets and the second I normally fish well out the way and its not feasible to nip back to the car for a brew.
I opt for a rucksack over a bag as its on my back, out my way and doesn't interfere with my fishing and if I go deep wading then its high up my back and wont get wet.
After sometime searching around I stumbled across this.....
Due to the manufacture of the bag you can set it up on 2 different ways, the waterproof liner goes the full length of the internals but if you want to separate it into two compartments then there is a drawcord on the bottom of the liner which you simply pull tight and it separates the internals into two. The top used to store your jacket, flask etc, where the bottom stores your fishing equipment which is accessible via the zip opening. No more rummaging through all your kit to get to the bits you need.

This is the internal waterproof liner pulled out the bag, this is what runs the full length of the bag and has the drawcord at the top to separate the bag into two compartments.
Liner back inside and drawcord pulled to separate. You can also see the zipped internal pouch which stores tickets, phone etc.
Being a bag designed for a camera it comes supplied with an internal removable cushioned pouch which as you can see from the pictures is just the right size for my tackle I carry on a normal days trotting and this all slips inside the bottom pocket of the bag.
The bag has a drawcord fastener coupled with what looks like a buckle but it is actually a heavy duty press stud.
I can honestly say after several fishing trips now in some horrible weather this rucksack has stood up to the elements and it has delivered everything I asked from it, more than I could say about some more expensive bags specifically designed for fishing.
The cost of the bag with free P&P was £25.62. I bought it from ebay....Koolertron
I have no ties or connections to them and the fast delivery, 4 days was first class. So if your looking for a new bag and like the look of this I can highly recommend it.
