DENVER (July 11, 2016) – Well-respected fly fishing and outdoor brand Fishpond continues to break barriers in design and function with its 2017 product introductions. Debuting July 13-15 at the International Fly Tackle Dealer show in Orlando at booth 433, Fishpond will bring its new products to market in fall 2016.
Creating products that keep up with adventurers on the water and during inclement weather, Fishpond designed the Thunderhead Submersible Duffels, available in two sizes, to withstand any environment around the world. The TPU welded 840 denier fabric and TIZIP submersible zipper ensure valuable gear stays dry and safe. Braided climbing rope handles on both sizes and tuck-away backpack straps on the large model easily carry a variety of loads. The signature welded bottom creates a sturdy platform to easily open and sort gear, and provides extra durability and a higher level of protection from abrasion. The smaller version is carry-on compatible, while the larger version can fit 9 foot, 4-piece fly rod tubes inside. At 2.6 and 4.2 pounds, respectively, the bags will be go-to options for kayakers, anglers and those who demand a waterproof and submersible carry system. MSRP: $299.95 and $399.95, respectively.
Another submersible bag is the new Castaway Roll Top Gear Bag, designed to fit in the hatches of most flats boats and to efficiently function on rafts and drift boats. The roll-top closure and TPU welded construction ensure camera gear, optics and fly gear stay dry. The removable, padded interior means the bag can pack flat in luggage, while the signature molded bottom provides structure without the padded interior. Ample accessory pockets make it supremely functional for hard-core river time. MSRP: $189.95
Fishpond’s Jackalope Rod Tube Case allows anglers to ditch rod tubes and carry up to six 9 foot, 4-piece rods in their socks for fishing adventures around the world. The molded and lockable zippered top and bottom allow easy loading and surround a lightweight, yet rigid, tube designed to protect rods and easily fit in carry-on compartments and many of fishpond’s larger luggage pieces. MSRP: $109.95
Another net joins the Nomad collection with the new Emerger Net. Its size has a slender opening with a slightly longer handle than the Hand Net to easily slide into fishpond packs’ net slots. The net will come in original and brown trout colors. Dimensions: 32 inches from handle butt to tip of hoop, hoop size 9.8 inches by 18.8 inches. MSRP: $149.95
A couple of accessories join the product introductions for 2017, including the Beavertail Fly Patch. The molded patch has high visibility foam and two-sided Velcro for multiple configuration options. MSRP: $12.95. The River Rat Beverage Holder is every river user’s dream beverage caddie. The EVA insulated side-walls keep beverages cold, and the YKK zippered top cap offers easy access and a snug fit. The sticky rubber molded bottom prevents sliding and the removable, adjustable webbing neck strap provides hands-free carrying. MSRP: $29.95
Fishpond’s new FP collection of waxed cotton canvas inspires travel, adventure and a journey defined by a purposeful lifestyle. With five new pieces in the 11-piece collection, Fishpond thought of everything a traveler would need. Each piece has 16 ounce waxed cotton canvas exterior fabric and CYCLEPOND® recycled interior fabric.
The Jagged Basin Duffel and Half Moon Weekender Bag are ideal for quick trips thanks to hidden backpack straps and carry-on compatibility. The duffel fits in in the back of a truck just as well as it does in the cargo-hold of an airplane. The weekender has three compartments for the utmost detail in organization. MSRP: $179.95 and $189.95, respectively.
The Horse Thief Tote is rugged and utilitarian thanks to its signature molded bottom to stand on its own and well-designed interior and exterior pockets. MSRP: $89.95
Both the Blizzard Soft Cooler and Ice Storm Soft Cooler have been redesigned for ultimate functionality. The Blizzard holds up to 18 beverage cans with a quick-access flap on the top. The Ice Storm is a larger cooler designed to hold plenty of food and drinks for days fishing, hunting, road tripping or camping. Both have multi-layer insulation to keep items cool for hours and exterior pockets for maps, cutting boards, utensils and other accessories. MSRP: $79.95 and $99.95, respectively. (Both coolers are also offered with CYCLEPOND recycled nylon in yucca for $10 less per style.)
