I am a big fan of the Osprey brand of packs the aether 70 style would probably suit you well and they carry loads around 35lbs with ease when I go I carry a MSR hubba hp tent, my waders rolled small and in a stuff sack, I tie my boots on the back and stick my rod case in the pocket in the back and roll my vest in a small stuff sack as well, my net just stuffs in the back pocket with my rod.

I carry a very lightweight pack it's called a ULA (Ultra Light Accessories) it's better for light weight backpacking I just sold a aether 60 it only has 3600 cu of space which just isn't enough. The ULA is 3800 cubic inches and I have everything I need for a very comfortable trip all of my backpacking gear is ultralight expensive but well worth it to have gear that performs.

Osprey, Granite Gear, and Gregory all make very nice packs be sure that when you purchase one to take all of the gear you will be carrying in it to the outfitters and pack it there and see if it will work for you.
