|Wychwood Boatman Bag, designed specifically for the boat angler, this is a versatile 55 litre carryall with a semi-rigid frame, predecessor to one of the most famous boat bags of all time.
The Boatman Bag is improved by adding new features such as a fully waterproof and lightweight EVA base, a neoprene kidney protector and a full rain cover to the original award-winning formula, this bag is worthy of its heritage.
Along with a full fabric upgrade, it features unique fishing specific functions such as a tippet discard pocket, rod tube holders and a quick-access 'boat-shelf' compartment. This compartment can safely house several fly reels or spare spools, various tackle items in several other tackle sections and contains a giant, removable foam fly patch that doubles as a boat seat cushion.
The Boatman offers cavernous storage, providing enough space for most tackle, food and spare clothing needed for a day session in the boat.

TACKLE TESTERS CHOICE - Trout fisherman - Bankman & Boatman - WHEN Wychwood bring out new gear they really go about it the right way, often taking designs back to the drawing board to come up with new and innovative features. The Bankman and Boatman bags are good examples.A theme running through all the new Wychwood luggage is the bright yellow linings to the sides and lids of the bags which highlight all the contents, although why they didn't make the inside bases yellow as well I don't know!Both bags are made from hard-wearing materials including heavy-duty cordura nylon fabrics and waterproof moulded EVA bases. The stitching throughout is of top quality and all the trim is faultless. The zips have good chunky pull tabs so are easy to grip and both bags have pull-out rain covers which make them totally waterproof. The lids are secured with a two-way zip and a quick-release bayonet fitting, keeping everything secure. But if you need to frequently access the bag's contents you don't need to undo the zip and bayonet fitting every time, as the lids will also stay closed with a little magnetic catch, a simple but practical feature. The pocket which houses the pull-out rain cover is faced with a soft neoprene and provides a padded protector panel against your body when you are carrying the bag. Incorporated into the substantial stormflaps is a waste tippet pocket - stuff unwanted nylon into a semi circular hole on the front, and then take it out from the other side of the flap when you get home. The bags are heavy and while this doesn't really matter for the Boatman bag because you won't be carrying it far, it might be an issue with the Bankman. But these bags have been built to last so I suppose that's the compromise. And they are still some of the best-designed bags on the market, keeping all the contents dry and well protected."
