Chosen with form and function in mind, we, here at Angling Direct, have personally assembled our specialist 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 with names such as Avid Carp, Shimano and Korum fishing luggage.
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. Check out the Drennan specialist luggage, perfect for many barbel and specimen rods.
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 specialist angler who likes to travel light to the bank but who still wants to ensure that their rods are fully protected.
Rucksacks are especially useful because they allow you to transport a large amount of gear whilst keep your hands free. They are ideal for overnight sessions in your bivvy when you want to take a change of clothes, a collection of cooking equipment, and other items down to the bank with you. A long session 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 transportation of clothing, 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.
Bait Bags and Cool Bags
When storing that specialist barbel bait you need a goof fishing food bag that keeps more you’re your sandwich cool for the long session ahead! You’ll find that we have a range of bait bags and cool bags built with keeping your bait fresh in mind.
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. The range of Korda compac bags offers accessory cases that keep your rig bits all in order.
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.
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.
