Tackle week 2019: The year’s best new fly-fishing gear

Top fly tackle

Innovation, tradition and value are the hallmarks of this year’s best new fly-fishing gear

Best Wading Belt

SWITCHBACK WADING BELT SYSTEM

This innovative wading belt is beyond multipurpose. Held in place by a padded, removable shoulder strap, it features a five-litre pack that slides out of the way when not in use. Both the shoulder strap and pack sport tool attachments and fly holders, while the belt itself includes a net holster and the option to attach Fishpond’s moulded wading staff pouch, drink holder and Quikshot rod holder (one of my 2018 gear selections).
