Fishing Luggage

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 to 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.


Rod Holdalls

Rod holdalls are fairly self-explanatory and give you the option of transporting a number of fully made up rods. Fishing rod holdalls are normally fairly heavily padded and they are a great storage solution for the angler who has a lot of gear. A fishing rod carrier will also normally have a number of handles and straps – including two smaller handles for easy in-car manoeuvrability and a longer shoulder strap. At Angling Direct, you can find a rod holdall for sale in a number of different sizes and usually, the fish rod holdall will specify what length of rod they can hold.


Rod Sleeves

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.



Fishing 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 them 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.



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 handheld transportation. This makes them the 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.


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.


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 purposes designed to protect your most vital bits of terminal tackle. A rig safe is normally 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.


Reel Cases

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.


Net Bags

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.
