Before the dawn of the kayak fishing movement, people fished from canoes. MTI was one of the first manufacturers to combine a fly fishing vest with a paddlesports life jacket. Called the Sportsman's Vest, it had 4 pockets for holding fishing reels and a tackle box. Today's Fisher offers 6 gear pockets with reinforced drainage holes, D rings front and back, and a handy pin on retractor holder for attaching accessories. 300D Polyester shell, reflective trim, and PVC free foam.
