All inshore enthusiasts who like to wade-fish need a good pack to carry plugs, leader, flies, pliers and other odds and ends of necessary gear. To this end, L.L. Bean offers the Kennebec Lumbar Pack. It's built tough, with water-resistant nylon, and has two main compartments, as well as two smaller side compartments, allowing anglers to carry all the gear they might need for a day on the flats. Brackets on each side of the belt stabilize the pack and keep it snug against the body so it stays comfortable during a day of wading. Bungee cords on the outside hold rain gear close at hand but keep it out of the way when it is not needed. $59; for more information, visit www.llbean.com.
