Fly anglers tend to be gear heads so there is always a need for storage and organization. Here are four fantastic options to consider:

Keter Signature Collection 150-Gallon Deck Box: Dry Storage for Lots of Fishing Gear

Dry storage for lots of fishing gear.

The Keter Signature Collection 150-gallon Deck Box isn't specifically designed for fly-fishing gear, but with 150 gallons of storage space (25”x25”x56”), the Keter Deck Box offers ample space for waders, boots, nets, and broken-down rods. It is built from durable, weather-resistant resin that will shield your gear from rain, sun, and dust–especially helpful if you lack a dedicated storage room for your equipment. And the lid can be locked to deter pests and keep your gear secure. It can double as a bench and has hydraulic struts that create an easy lift and soft close opening system. And assembly is easy–only a screwdriver is required.

Unlike boxes with compartments, everything gets tossed into one big bin, making it a little inconvenient to access specific items quickly.

If you need a large, secure bin for bulky gear and prioritize weatherproof protection, then the Keter Deck Box could be a good value.

Rux 70L: A Compressible and Convenient Wader-and-Boot Hauler

A compressible and convenient wader-and-boot hauler.

The Rux 70L has answered some prayers for me–I finally have a workable bag for my and my kids’ waders and boots. It is a unique gear bag that blends aspects of a duffel, a storage bin, and a backpack. The Rux 70L is built tough, with weatherproof 840D TPU coated nylon that can handle rain, splashes, and rough handling on the boat. This material is also easy to wipe clean if you get fish slime or rock snot on it. Unlike traditional gear bags, the Rux 70L collapses flat for easy storage when not in use. With 70 liters of space, it can swallow a ton of fishing gear. While not brimming with internal pockets, the Rux 70L does have a clear vinyl window on the side that allows you to see what's inside without unbuckling everything. You can also use internal dividers or external pouches (sold separately) to create compartments for fly boxes, tippet spools, or spare spools.

The Rux's boxy design could be awkward to maneuver in tight spaces on a drift boat or raft.

The Rux 70L is a well-made and versatile gear bag that can be a great option for anglers looking for a durable, easy-to-store solution for your waders, boots, or whatever else.

Orvis Carry-It-All: A Protective Workhorse

A protective workhorse.

The Orvis Carry-It-All bag is becoming legendary among fly fishers, known for its ability to swallow an impressive amount of gear while keeping it safe and organized. It comes in two sizes, with the large model boasting enough space to fit multiple fly rods (up to 10'6" in the large size), reels, tackle boxes, nets, and even waders. The large compartment includes removable dividers. Built with water-resistant 600D Cordura fabric, it can withstand the rigors of repeated use and harsh weather conditions. The lockable zipper and padded shoulder strap make the Carry-It-All a convenient option for airline travel.

The Carry-It-All has just one external zippered pocket, which may not be enough for some anglers who like to keep smaller essentials readily accessible.

For serious fly fishers who need a reliable way to transport a lot of gear, the Orvis Carry-It-All is a proven winner.

YETI LoadOut GoBox 30 Gear Case: Sturdy Dry Box Doubles as a Stool, Bench, or Table

A sturdy dry box that doubles as a stool, bench, or table.

YETI’s LoadOut GoBox 30 is a sturdy, waterproof, dustproof, stackable dry box that’s usage is limited only by your imagination. It can be used for a million angling uses, and nearly any outdoor pursuit.

This storage box measures 20.5x14.6x11.1 inches and weighs just under 12 pounds. It’s as sturdy as anything from YETI, and doubles as a stool, bench, or table. It can permanently live outside and will keep its contents dry and safe due to its tight-locking clasps. It's lockable with padlocks (not included). It's certified "IP67" which means it keeps contents dry for 30 minutes while submerged in 1 meter of water, and is compatible with YETI's locks and Tie-Down Kit.

The LoadOut GoBox’s webpage lets you can scan a QR code with your phone and it will superimpose the case over whatever your phone camera is looking at, to help you get an idea of its size or where it would fit (scroll down and find the "View in Your Space" button).

It should be noted that it doesn’t quite fit under every raft frame but could still be used as dry storage–just not under a seat. It also lacks a top handle (like toolboxes have) but can be carried single-handed (or two-handed) by the grips on either end.

A box like this has a million uses and few anglers would have no use for one.
