Inspired by guides who spend countless hours on the water, the Thunderstorm Gear Bag from Fishpond is raising the bar for tackle bags that must perform day after day in rugged conditions.

The main part of the bag has 17 pockets and compartments, as well as adjustable (and removable) padded dividers, so you can custom organize your things; 11 exterior pockets allow easy access to frequently used items.

A fully padded water-resistant, ballistic nylon outer shell provides maximum protection for your gear, while a waterproof molded bottom keeps shallow standing water from getting into the bag. In addition, the Thunderstorm comes with a waterproof, nylon rain cover with taped seams that completely protects your equipment under extreme wet-weather conditions. These features also make it a great way to tote your camera or video gear.

Other key components include an exterior tippet spool storage cord, rod tube compression straps, an outside pocket for storing a hemostat or pliers, and the Fishpond signature "zip-down" fly bench with replaceable rippled foam.

The Thunderstorm Gear Bag retails for $140 and comes in midnight blue with carbon accents. For more information, contact Fishpond at 970-468-2056; or visit www.fishpondusa.com.
