When it comes to luggage, there are several key requirements that an angler needs. The first is space. In this day and age, we carry multiple nets, an array of box accessories, rollers, as well as smaller items such as pole pots and catapults. Then there’s durability and strength. How many times have you heard an angler complain about a zip breaking or luggage leaking? And, of course, everybody wants to look good on the bank in front of their mates, so your luggage needs to look the part!
The latest Deluxe luggage range from Daiwa has everything. Designed using tough PVC-backed fabric nylon, with hard-wearing resistant plastic on key stress areas, you’re sure to be able to use this gear year after year.
First up is the carryall, which has a large main compartment with a reinforced base, as well as two external side pockets for smaller items and a slim accessory pocket. The front features a large keepnet compartment too, with a twin net bag that also has an accessory pocket.
Next is the holdall, which is available in six and eight-tube versions. The eight-tube is ideal for the serious pole angler, while the six suits canal anglers or those who don’t take the kitchen sink. The eight-tube features a main pole compartment, with a separate internal section for storing a landing-net handle or brolly. There is also a large external pocket, ideal for items such as banksticks or longer attachments, as well as a shorter external pocket for smaller accessories. The two-way quality zips throughout make access easy from all angles, and reinforcements at the top and base prevent wear and tear in these vulnerable areas.
There is also a cool bag, another smart item that’s sure to keep your bait or drinks fresh – perfect for anglers travelling away on a weekend’s fishing. Lined with foil, foam and plastic, it features a removable central divider and makes the perfect bag for carrying additional pole-related accessories as well as bait.
