Plano Molding used the experience of one of the most famous anglers on the planet to help it redesign one of its top fishing bags.
The result is the new for 2015 Plano Elite™ Kevin VanDam Signature Series Bag. Plano says: “What came from the mind of the ‘world’s greatest angler’ was almost scary in its brilliance. How could a man think so deeply about lures? The answer lies in 10 Toyota Tundra Angler of the Year titles and four Bassmaster Classics.
“The result of this particular branstorming exercise is the most advanced tackle sorting and toting system to ever find the bow of a boat. It is infinitely more than a canvas bag with pockets and plastic containers to toss tackle into – it is a beautifully conceived carryall that puts everything in its place,” adds the company.
“Plano is constantly trying to improve their products and I am honoured to be part of that,” says Plano Pro-Staffer, VanDam. “This bag offers the most innovative features available for managing gear and tackle. I wouldn’t put my signature on it if it didn’t.”
The Elite Kevin VanDam Signature Series Bag sports a moulded top containing two StowAway™ utility boxes, held securely with elastic tie-down straps for quick access to baits. A clear, zippered pocket under the cover can be used to hold maps, licences or a smartphone.
The bag’s ‘colossal’ compartmentalised front cubicle and sizeable side pockets can be used to store gear and sundries like extra reel spools, trolling motor remote controls or other items that other tackle bags don’t have room for.
Slots on the outside of the front and side pockets are ideal for keeping tools like pliers and cutters at-the-ready.
A large mesh pocket on the back can hold additional items such as soft plastic bait packs or smaller StowAway utility boxes. The interior holds three included 3700 Series ProLatch ™ StowAway boxes.
Standout features include:
- Moulded top with elastic tie-down strap holds two StowAway utility boxes;
- Includes three 3700 Series ProLatch StowAway boxes;
- Large mesh pocket on the back;
- Compartmentalised front pocket for multiple uses;
- Padded, removable shoulder strap;
- Pliers and tool holder slots on front and side pockets;
- Clear, zippered pocket under top cover.
