The Shimano Gear Bag, so beloved of fishos Australia-wide and a fixture at just about every tournament for the last 20 years, whether it be a bream, barra or billfish event, has undergone quite a transformation this year. It’s now an attractive charcoal grey colour with chartreuse trim, with Shimano stitched into the top. The big change though, is that it also folds up into itself for ease of storage when not being used. There’s also a choice of carry strap or handle. The Shimano gear Bag features a hard wearing Denier bottom, and water resistant anti-corrosion zips, so it’s not just for holding fishing clothes — it’s made to go fishing as well..
