    Default Orvis Safe Passage Sling Pack

    Does anyone have any experience with this triangular do-hickey...Looking for something to spend a gift card on (Unfortunately it doesn't have near enough on it to buy a Mitey Might Special edition Boo rod ).
    By the way...does LRO take Orvis gift cards? The nice people at Orvis say many authorized retailers will.

    Many Thanks... O' Wizened Ones

    Thumbs up sling pack

    I have it and like it. Only buy it if you are a minimalist. I carry a few tools, my rain jacket, a few fly boxes, an iPod (when I'm not with my fishing buddy) and a camera. Its easy to pull under your arm and get stuff from the rear bag and I enjoy the small pouch that can clip to the front or rear of the bag (I keep it up front all of the time for my fly box).

    If you like to carry a bunch of stuff, you won't like this bag, its very small.

    Thanks U of M...It seems to carry more than enough (compared to your list above) heck the fish are lucky If I wear clothes...very lucky .

    But seriously, I was looking for an on stream tote to stow the pod and camera etc... don't have a strong enough zinger, or a small enough camera to hook it onto the lanyard.

    I appreciate your time in responding, thank you!

    Hey man, 11 and 1 in 2007 ain't bad. Better than 7 and 6 any day.

    Besides, it's a wonder anyone attends the games, or classes for that matter, with the Bitteroot a stonefly's throw away. Closest we got to fly fishing was on Sorority Row ( all I better say about that, wouldn't want to offend Ms.Paula )

    Course they probably hold class meetings in the river there anyway. I'm jealous

    Spent 4 years in Missoula, 21 total in Montana and I didn't pick up a fly rod until I moved to Tennessee No wonder I had such a high GPA

    I never did miss a Grizzly football game. I still get choked up on Saturdays when I know my dad is sitting in the south end-zone cheering for my Griz and I am stuck in Tennessee unable to watch

    Default Yes, we do!

    We sure do! LRO always honors Orvis gift cards, coupons and special promotions.

    Default Thanks Ms. Paula

    I would much rather use the Orvis gift card at LRO! If not for anything else than helping to support all you do for Fly fishers everywhere!

    Sorry for the shameless sucking up ...but the forum here sure does help pass the time between infrequent trips to the creeks. Too much warmwater and not enough trout down here in central 'Bama

    Check out the William Joseph Satchel. It is a minimalist bag with features to carry a lot. It has a water bottle holder, will accomodate a hydration bladder, has loops for gink or whatever, a retractor (with a cover), and a fly patch. I have found it to very comfortable and the zippers work with ease.

    ROLL TIDE from Chelsea, AL.


    I received the Orvis sling pack for Christmas and have not used it yet. I chose it because i like to keep it simple and light on the water. 2 things i did not think about were a fly drying patch and a comfortable way to hold a net. The patch is easy to fix since you can buy a clip on patch. The net is not that big a deal in the smokies since most of the fish are not big enough to need a net.
