Fishing Bags for Every Fisherman

No matter what you fish, taking it home is the most rewarding part. Pick up a Chapman Bag to give your catch of the day the ride home it deserves.

Chapman Bags first began with traditional fishing bags – the same ones we continue to make today, using our original techniques and the highest quality materials. Whether you catch trout, salmon or carp we have a bag for every fishing fanatic. Fishing is a relaxing sport, with great rewards that challenge few others – with an efficient fishing bag the experience is that much more enjoyable.

Fishing Tote

This  fishing bag is great for impromptu fishing trips; it is available with a detachable rubberised lining, can be used for other purposes whilst not fishing and can be easily stored in the car just in case you find yourself near a river.


Our traditional fishing bag is the perfect statement bag for the old-style fisherman and is also available with or without a detachable lining. This classy bag can be used for many alternatives when not in use for fishing trips.


Our unique and traditional Troutbeck bag is perfect for medium sized fish such as trout and comes with large pockets for accessories and equipment. The hardwearing bag is also available with a detachable inner lining for easy cleaning to keep the bag in pristine condition.

After bags, every fisherman needs his equipment along with a way to bring home the catch. Fishing equipment is susceptible to wear and tear due to weather, use and storage – so using the best storage for your expensive tackle helps to keep your things in prime condition for longer.

Bass Bags

Our bass bags come in two sizes, one for smaller river trout whilst the larger bag will accommodate larger fish like salmon. The bag is produced from a washable material that uses evaporation to keep fish cool, preserving them perfectly until you can get to a fridge.

Fly Reel Cover

Fly reels are an expensive and essential part of a fisherman’s kit. Keeping them protected and safe is important at all times – having one break or end up damaged due to bad storage could mean the end to a fishing trip. Our Fly Reel covers come in two different sizes and are fleece lined for optimum protection – even when travelling to and from the fishing site – and are water proof to protect from the elements.

The Fly Wallet
Keep your flies safe in our fleece lined canvas wallets with zipped enclosure. Our wallet will protect those delicate and lucky flies from being damaged by the rest of your equipment.

Whatever you catch and wherever you fish, our traditional and durable bags have long been part of the British fishing community. It is a brand you can trust for quality and luxury, every time.
