Does anyone recommend anything other than an Able holds everything bag?

Please advise.

Thanks.

I actually use the LL Bean back pack made for fly fishing. It carries my waders, boots, insulated pants, extra socks, all flies, reels, lines and other gear, and transports a fly rod in its case with the straps. It's also got room for a light rain coat, water, and food. It's great for hiking in to your favorite hole and is pretty comfortable.

As an aside, where in GA are you? I moved (back) up to the Northeast last Summer after spending four years living north of Atlanta. Used to go into the Fish Hawk most weekends.

grapex: you don't mention whether you're fishing from shore or from a boat. If from shore, like I, you might be happy with the Wood River Salmon style over the shoulder bag. It holds everything I need for a flyfishing day, whether in fresh or salt water. Is of excellent quality and good looking too. Customer service, if you need it, is the best. My highest recommendations.
