Buy Fishing Luggage And Tackle Bags
We firmly believe that all our fishing tackle will last on the bank as long as you do, but that’s only true if you take care of it. Look after your fishing gear properly and it will look after you, catch after catch. Chosen with form and function in mind, we, here at Angling Direct, have personally assembled our angling luggage range and have given our seal of approval to every last item, across the board. Having a huge bag that accommodates everything might be an anglers dream, but, in reality, this is totally impractical – both to bring down to the bank and use once you’ve struggled it down there. We believe that the right luggage can play a pivotal role in any angler’s successes and has the potential transform your time at the bank. Arrive in style with comfortable and convenient carry cases to get your fishing off on the right foot, every time. So, whether you’re looking to carry a handful of accessories or a huge arsenal of world-class fishing gear, we’ve got the luggage to suit your needs. We only ever stock items from the industry’s most reputable manufacturers where quality and value for money come as standard. Our range is comprehensive, so we thought we’d give you a quick overview of the types of luggage we stock and their primary uses.
Rod holdalls are fairly self-explanatory and give you the option of transporting a number of fully made up rods (usually three or more, although it does vary product by product), as well as a number of unmade rods. Most will also give you the option of carrying your buzzbars or rod support system, your landing net handle and head, as well as a range of other tackle items. Rod holdalls are normally fairly heavily padded and they are a great storage solution for the angler who has a lot of gear. They’ll also normally have a number of handles and straps – including two smaller handles for easy in-car manoeuvrability and a longer shoulder strap. Ideally,k you would probably use a rod holdall in conjunction with a barrow on a longer angling session, although their shoulder strap means that barrow-less transportation between boot and bank is more than possible. These holdalls are favourite by those in the carp fishing community who like to be prepared when heading to the bank and who tend to carry more than one or two rods with them. You can find rod holdalls in a number of sizes and usually they will specify what length of rod they can hold. When it comes to cost, for a top quality product that can hold in excess of six rods, reels, and a huge range of other bankside essentials, you could be looking at parting with £100 or more. As little as £30 will get you a more basic outfit, without the additional pockets, which is designed to hold your three main carp rods fully made up.
Rod sleeves are basically a paired down version of a rod holdall. Normally with reduced padding, a rod sleeve tends to be able to hold no more than one fully made-up rod. These are ideal for the angler who likes to travel light to the bank but who still wants to ensure that their rods are fully protected. Once again, you’ll find that rod sleeves will specify what size fishing rod they are designed to hold, as well as whether or not they can accommodate a bit pit reel. On the whole, rod sleeves tend to be cheaper than holdalls and prices can start from as low as £10. For a rod sleeve with a little extra padding and capacity – in other words, one that bridges the gap between a sleeve and a holdall – you might end up parting with nearer £50.
A rod quiver is almost a combination between a rod holdall and a rod sleeve. They tend to have a main compartment designed for carrying banksticks, landing net handles and heads, and perhaps even a shelter or bivvy. However, where they differ from both rod holdalls and sleeves is the amount of padding they provide to the rod. Quivers tend to have long pockets for the base and the tip of the rod, leaving the main body of the rod exposed. Usually, anglers will use tip and butt protectors in conjunction with a rod quiver, to give the delicate ends of their tackle a little additional protection – although you can also purchase quivers that are made for use with rod sleeves. Quivers will tend to specify how many rods they can hold, as well as the length of rod they can accommodate, and start at £20.
Rucksacks are another important piece of luggage which most anglers will own, regardless of their discipline. They are ideal for overnight sessions when you want to take a change of clothes, a collection of cooking equipment, and other items down to the bank with you. Most rucksacks we stock will also have a dedicated compartment (or two) for bait storage and tackle box storage. Rucksacks are especially useful because they allow you to transport a large amount of gear whilst keep your hands free. Roving anglers and stalking anglers tend to use the for the majority of their gear, whereas a long session carp angler might use a rucksack in conjunction with a barrow in order to limit the number of trips they have to make between boot and bank. Our angling rucksacks start at £20 but for a multi-compartmental roving rucksack that can comfortably hold the vast majority of your gear then you’ll be looking at spending up to £100.
Similar to rucksacks, carryalls are mainly used for the transportation of cooking equipment, clothing, and other items. They are also used for the transportation of rig storage systems, cool bags, tackle pouches, and other smaller luggage items. Unlike rucksacks, carryalls offer either single shoulder or hand held transportation. This makes them most popular among long session anglers who want to hold a huge amount of gear. They are also favoured among hyper-organised anglers who like to know precisely where their gear is, as carryalls lend themselves towards housing lots of smaller luggage items. For a trout bag, which is smaller than a traditional carry-all and used in fly fishing, you could be looking at spending in and around £20. For anywhere up to £100 you could be headed to the bank with a large and heavy duty carryall that will see you through the rest of your carp fishing career.
Bait Bags and Cool Bags
In the world of angling, cool bags aren’t used for keeping packed lunches and beers chilled. Instead, they are primarily used for the storage of baits, in order to keep frozen boilies and other baits as fresh as possible for as long as possible – although this isn’t to say that you won’t find a packet of bacon stored in there as well ready for the next day’s breakfast. You’ll also find that we have a range of bait bags that are designed for use with potted glugs and additives. These will feature specially designed segments and will often come with their own pots – allowing you to prepare your pop-ups or hookbaits with glug before you even leave for the bank. You might find that the rucksack or carryall that you own will already come with a specially designed ‘cool bag’ section. We also stock a range of fabric ‘bait buckets’. These are ideal for the angler who likes to take a lot of gear, as their flexibility ensures that you don’t’ have to sacrifice any boot space for groundbait mixing bowls. Our largest bait and cool bags come in at £50 and are ideal for long sessions when you want to keep a significant amount of bait fresh for an extended period of time. For smaller bait bowls and cool bags for shorter sessions, our prices start from as little as £5.
Rig Safes and Accessory Cases
Rig safes and accessory cases are some of the most important luggage items for the angler who likes to be organised on the bank. Your rigs, floats, leads, and other essential accessories tend to be the smallest items in your tackle collection and they could very easily be lost or damaged if you were to throw them all in the bottom of your large rucksack or carryall. Rig safes and accessory cases are purpose designed to protect your most vital bits of terminal tackle. A rig safe is normally a plastic or stiff fabric wallet which allows you to store ready made rigs in neat rows. These are designed to prevent tangles and normally feature a slim metal pole, for you to hook your hook around to prevent it blunting, and dense foam, to protect the body of your rig. After all, your rig is one of the most essential elements of your tackle setup and you wouldn’t want to jeopardise an excellent angling session with a sub-par rig.
Accessory cases include everything from lead bags to scale pouches and on our site we have a huge range of accessory cases that are each purpose-designed to hold your essential and accessory items. With these especially-built cases, you never need to waste time on the bank sifting through your luggage for the lead to finish your rig or the float to mark-out the hidden feature you’re looking to target. We also stock cases to hold your gas canister, stove, and other cooking equipment – ideal for the long session angler who doesn’t want to have to unpack and repack a whole rucksack or carry-all each time they make a cup of tea. Our rig and accessory cases start at £10.
Reel cases tend to be a luggage item that never sees much action on the bank, as nine times out of ten you’ll head down to the bank with your rod and reel already made up. However, they are an important aspect of your off-bank storage. After all, reels can be some of the most expensive bits of kit that you’ll invest in, so it makes sense to store them in a padded protective case when they aren’t in use. This ensures that they are in tip-top condition each time you head down to the bank. If you are an angler who doesn’t like to take the bulk of a rod holdall, or even a rod sleeve, down to the bank, then you might want a little on-bank protection from one of the on-rod reel cases we stock. These are either in the form of padded wrap-around cases that fasten around your reel or slot-on pouches with an especially designed hole to accommodate the rod. Our reel cases start at £5, which is a small price to pay for premier reel protection.
You’ll struggle to name a style of fishing where a net isn’t integral to the landing or retention of your catch. Heading down to the water’s edge with a dry net is no problem but, after a long and successful session with your net seeing plenty of action, you’ll be clamouring for somewhere to store it so it doesn’t soak your car boot with smelly river or lake water. Even if you do manage to go some way towards drying your net on the bank chances are it will never be quite as dry as you like – and for match anglers who are retaining their catch until the very last moment it is a complete impossibility to dry out the keepnet before packing up the car and heading home. This is why we stock both keepnet bags and landing net bags on our site. Since our net bags are designed for holding wet nets you’ll find that the majority of will be waterproof and ‘stink proof’. This is to ensure that your boot and other luggage items remain dry and smell-free – after all, it is considerably easier to run a net mesh through the wash than it is a rucksack. You can invest in a bag to keep your boot dry and odourless for as little as £10.
We stock a huge selection of fishing luggage and tackle bags from the biggest brands in the UK and beyond. When it comes to top quality luggage, there are plenty of names to look out for to ensure that you’re getting a premier product. Trakker luggage is renowned for its quality and the brand is a luggage specialist. Cotswold Aquarius and Aqua both produce stylish and practical luggage that is designed to last you a lifetime on the bank. Big name fishing brands, such as Daiwa, Greys, and Korda, all know exactly what anglers need on the bank and their ranges of luggage are not only designed to complement their tackle collections but are also designed with an intimate knowledge of angling. So, whether you’re after a specialised holdall to help transport your pre-constructed rods and reels or you’re looking for a more general storage solution, we have the fishing luggage for you.
We’ve also produced our own brand range of luggage: Advanta. Our collection of rod bags ensures that this most vital bit of kit is protected during transit. We’ve also designed carry-alls, bait bags, and even a pouch for holding bedchairs. Committed as we are to giving you top quality tackle at great value, we’ve even collected together several of our luggage pieces into one bargain bundle that offers 10% savings compared to if you were to buy each product individually.
We’re adding to our luggage range all the time and suggest checking back on a regular basis to see what’s new. If you require any further information or don’t see the ideal products to suit your needs, we’d be delighted to hear from you at any time.
