Comments about Swiss Fly Fishing Bag:

I purchased one of these bags last year when I was on a budget and needed something to carry my fly fishing equipment. A few weeks later I purchased a fancy fly fishing vest. The fly fishing vest has been retired and I am exclusively using this militray surplus bag. I prefer it hands down to a vest for carrying my necessities. It has enough room to hold 3 fly boxes, two reels, a soda and sandwich not to mention various other items I need during a day on the water.

I did modify the bag by sewing a flap on the front of the bag to ensure that no items fell out if I took a tumble while wade fishing. So far, I haven't been forced to test the feature out. I can report hat the bag is durable and functional. I would highly recommend buying one of these bags.

Comments about Swiss Fly Fishing Bag:

This bag solved my stream and river fishing needs. I'm able to get 4 Plano 3500 boxes into it with no problem. I can adjust the strap when wading deeper water. I'm considering replacing the original wax coating. When I received the bag I had to rid it of the odors from years of storage. It's been a long time since WWII. After washing it and hanging to dry the brown color was really attractive.

The leather trim is saddle leather and the stitching was still in great shape. I saddle soaped it and will continue to do so. The hook type closure is perfect for fishing. Stays closed when it's supposed to.

I added some brass grommets to the interior panel so my clippers and pliers could be secured through them.

GREAT VALUE!!!!

Comments about Swiss Fly Fishing Bag:

This is exactly what I wanted for wading the river when I trout fish. Love the option to buckle it onto my belt. The bag is bigger then it describes and will easily fit some tackle, worms, camera and a bottle of water. It's used which adds to the look and feel of the bag and I can't wait to test it out.

Comments about Swiss Fly Fishing Bag:

Tried to use the bag the first day I recieved it but the smell was overwhelming. After a good hand wash and a left out in he sun to dry, things were remedied. I have used the bag for fishing and to carry a bit of my photography gear. Worked just fine. Very tough little bag.

Comments about Swiss Fly Fishing Bag:

For a small price, one can get a nice simple yet stylish and a truly functional bag. [...] I mainly use this bag for fly fishing. A couple of fly boxes, a hat, light rain jacket, cell phone, fly fishing lanyard, polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm, fits just right in this bag. I love the old worn out classic look as well. I really like this bag.

Comments about Swiss Fly Fishing Bag:

I love this bag. It has a great classic look. Nicely broken in but not worn out. I took it to the movies just this evening. A pro and a con... the opening is secured with only one hook - this makes it easy for me to access items but I wouldn't store valuables in it if I was in a crowded location like the mall or public transit.

Comments about Swiss Fly Fishing Bag:

This item was very used prior to me, however I guess it makes it even cooler. My only real complaint is that there was writing ON the actual bag - someone's name - that bothers me.
