It has been said that work is something you HAVE to do and play is something you do because you enjoy it. For the past several years a friend and I have been “working” on the Fishin’ Buddy. It has definitely been a labor of love. To do our “research” we frequently seek out the hard-to-get-to places in the backcountry of Colorado. In doing so we realized many years ago that a fly fishing vest just wasn’t very practical. So, I decided to design something that was lightweight, packable and minimalist in nature. It needed to have all the features I needed and none that I didn’t. My friend (and CO fly fishing guide) recently introduced me to an alternative style of fly fishing called Tenkara. Though not specifically designed for a Tenkara rod, this it works very well to stow the rod underneath the pack. It's a perfect place to carry the rod when making a short hike from our vehicle or camp down to the creek. Best of all...the Fishin' Buddy Pack is made in the USA! I hope you will find the Fishin’ Buddy as useful as I do.
Made with some imported materials.

Really well designed and thought out. I setup all my gear, some snacks and a water filter - had all day fishing in one small package.
You can really tell this was created by an avid fisherman. Detail and function is amazing. Really well constructed.
Perfect compliment for Tenkara rod.
