Anglers and fishermen are often very particular about their equipment. A fishing rucksack or carryall is just one part of this. Adults and childrens rucksacks can be bought through a range of means, and should be considered on the following two fronts: do they house all of your equipment, such as rods, tackle boxes, hooks, lines, sinkers and are they waterproof and comfortable?
Independent High Street stores
Although, specialist angling stores are now relatively rare in UK towns and cities, they are not obsolete. Source out your most convenient angling supplies store either by searching on the Internet or by using a telephone directory.
You are advised to telephone in advance of visiting the angling store to ask whether the shop in question hosts the type of fishing rucksack that you are looking for. If you are uncertain as to the type of rucksack you wish to buy, which is particularly prevalent for beginner anglers, visit the store and ask the shopkeeper for his or her help and advice.
Pick up a catalogue
Order an angling supplies catalogue online or pick one up from a local sports store, if available. Search through the different rucksacks provided, including reading carefully about the bag's size, weight, material and features.
Consider whether your rucksack includes specialised pockets for your equipment, for example, as the ability to differentiate your dry and wet items within your rucksack is considered as a distinct advantage.
You may also be able to buy a fishing rucksack that stands upright on feet, which helps to keep the bottom of the bag dry as the feet keep it off the ground or river bank.
Angling supplies websites
Search the Internet for the greatest possible range of fishing rucksacks.
If you know of a company whose products you know to be of high quality, visit their official website or online shop to view their rucksacks.
If you do not know a specific brand that you wish to shop with, perform a general Internet search for angling supplies shops. Consider the additional costs associated with packaging and delivering your rucksack as well as credit or debit card fees associated with placing online orders before you make any financial commitment online. Compare the prices available in High Street shops, catalogues and online before making your fishing rucksack purchase at the best possible price.
