Objective: Create an easy, hands-free way to transport the essential gear to go freshwater fishing.

My Story

When I was 15 I learned how to fish while on vacation with my family. From that day forward I always loved to go fishing, most of my summers throughout high school here spent fishing at Lake Cochichewick in my hometown.

The Problem

Throughout high school, I worked part-time at my local Burger King and didn’t have steady access to a car. This made fishing really difficult because on many occasions I had to walk to the lake in order to go. This made small trips before going to work impossible because of the walk and the amount of gear I needed to bring.

How Might We...

Create a compact, handsfree, and easy way to carry the essential gear in order to freshwater fish.

The Essential Gear

Over the past 6 years, I’ve realized that a majority of the gear that I was bringing fishing was unnecessary. So decided to boil down the gear to the bare basics that you need to go fishing, and that is what the product needed to be able to hold

Design Exploration

I explored a variety of wearable tackle bag options. and at the end of each round of exploration, I continued to return to a collapsable drawstring-styled bag.

I expanded on the drawstring/bindle, style of bag, coming up with three distinct concepts to model.
