Default Backpack style tackle bags.

I've currently and have for the last few years used an over the shoulder bag. Trouble is over a mile or two the disbalanced effect makes it pretty uncomfortable. So I'm looking to switch to a back pack style, anyone got any suggestions? I don't want to take the whole house with me but enough tackle to switch method or replace crack offs etc.

I've seem to have collected a fair selection of fishing bags over the years Stephen ranging from Chub modulated shoulder bags to Shimano 110 litre rucksacks that I can step into and shut the lid when it rains!!
I found that the carryall/ shoulder bag did my back no favours, but the moduled tackle wallets and boxes were great.
The big Shimano has so many pockets and compartments I tend to have trouble finding bits of kit, and the bigger the bag the more unnecessary kit you tend to take to the bank.
My favourite is a 50 litre Korum rucksack with the hard base, useful straps and clips for mats or a jacket etc. Had the current bag for quite a few years and it's still going strong.

I've used the Nash Nomad for a few years and it's holding up very well. Compact with a good few pockets plus it has provision for carrying up to 4 bank sticks and an unhooking mat. A good bit of kit.

Aqua roving rucksack for me. It's like the Korum but better imo.
Don't ask me where I caught them.

Hi men ,

I use the Korum ruckbag that you attach the chair to , lovely bit of kit as you lay it on the floor and access is so easy, not having to look into a dark hole pulling stuff out to get to the bottom . Had it years , makes a fantastic barrow bag for my carp fishing as well. Once you hook your chair on and walk with it you will wonder why you used anything else . I'm using it as I type on a early morning splash and dash carping session , and had my un-hooking mat over my chair as well , love it.

Hi Stephen, Fishtec used to do a roving 'backpack'...very small compared to most, but do for me on 90% of my trips (and they're insulated so keep bait cold). Just had a look on site and can't see one, but if you can get hold of one, I'd have a look at them. I'm a great fan. ATVB

Ditto the Korum Ruckbag: very hard-wearing, strong zips and comfortable to carry. Lie it on its back as mark has said , flip the 'lid' and access all areas.

Used and tried quite a few but favourites have to be:

Nash Nomad 35l Rucksack - the one with the removable side pockets - very good (have a brand new one as well, which I must sale)

Cotswold Aquarius Specialist Pathfinder sack with a built in mat) 45l

And probably the most comfortable to carry, great straps and my all time favourites :-
5.11 RUSH 24 and RUSH 72 Rucksacks. Loads of pockets, which can be frustrating though.

Thinking anglers rucksack. Very light and comfy, 3 outside pockets and plenty inside. Also has bankstick holders on the front. Not massive so you cant overfill it. Best I have had for the river angler.
