We have started the marathon project of cleaning and reorganizing every fly and flybox
we own. With the addition of the boat we needed something that would move easily between
both the raft and skiff. I think we have found the perfect boat bag.
The Simm's Dry Creek Boat Bag has a ton to offer. (See the Simms write up below). Our great selling
point to the bag were the overlapping lid, magnetized , self closing clasp. This will keep light rain and water residue out of the bag while fishing, but make it much easier to access the bag. Our previous bag, the Patagonia Boat Bag, which is industructable and amazingly waterproof, but very difficult to access during simple in and out chores.
I think it is a worthy purchase.
"Instead of juggling all kinds of gear like some kind of fishing clown, keep everything in one place in the Simms Dry Creek Boat Bag. Ultra-durable TPU-coated fabric is completely waterproof, and a compression-molded overhanging lid repels water when the bag isn't completely zippered shut. A magnetized Catch & Release buckle keeps the lid securely closed. In designing its Dry Creek line, Simms did years of research and extensive product testing, resulting in features like intuitively designed interior dividers and trays for gear organization. Hypalon strap attachment points on the sides of the bag allow you to integrate other small packs or pieces of gear."
