Kyle’s Simms Headwaters Guide Hip Pack
For the past year, Kyle has been using the Simms Headwaters Guide Hip Pack for all his fishing outings. The Headwaters Guide Hip Pack is very unique in it’s design. It really just kind of looks like a box attached to a belt…and even somewhat “badonkadonk”. However, it is extremely comfortable to wear as it sits high up in the center of your back and does not sag or shift around at all. The design of the pack also makes it a great work station that keeps all of your gear and fly boxes right where you need it.
All other features aside though; the greatest asset of the Simms Headwaters Guide Hip Pack is just how much gear you can actually fit into this pack. You can literally carry everything you would ever need for a day of fly fishing in here. How much is that exactly? Well this much…and maybe a little more…
So what did Kyle fit in here?
- UPG Day Tripper Fly Box for small to medium nymphs
- Meiho 49 Deep Fly Box for large dries and hoppers
- Rio Powerflex Trout Leaders
- Trout Hunter Fluoro Tippet and Tippet Holder
- Rio Flouroflex and Powerflex Tippet Spools
- Maxima Mono Tippet
- 2 Duranglers Fly Pucks – one for hoppers, one for indicators
- Myran 1120 Fly Box for small dries
- Morell Large Fly Box for large nymphs and medium streamers
- Rising Diamond Hook File
- 4 Compartment Split Shot assortment and 6 Compartment Split Shot assortment
- Fishing Licence
- Rising Nippa on lanyard
- Rising Work Tool
- Rising Ultralight Pliers
- Gink Fly Floatant
- Fishpond Sushi Roll for big streamers and meat
There are also two straps on the bottom that Kyle has not used in the photos above to attach a rain jacket…or more sushi rolls.
They say less is more…and maybe there is “less” bells in whistles with this pack…but logically speaking: more is more. The Simms Headwaters Guide Hip Pack just fits more. It also keeps that stuff organized and easily accessible.
