About Maxcatch Fly Fishing
Founded in 2005, Maxcatch began life as one man’s dream, a dream of a world where everyone, regardless of their economic circumstances, has the opportunity to discover and embrace the wonderous and engaging sport of fly fishing. That man was and is Mr. A.S.H.
Starting in his garage with nought but a few tools, a dream, and a single product – a fly box handcrafted by himself – Maxcatch began to flourish, quickly escalating in size, scope and ambition. Within a few years, our product catalogue expanded to accommodate the entirety of the fly fishing spectrum, with the company manufacturing and selling their own fly reels, rods, lines and clothing apparel – anything an up-and-coming fly angler could ever hope for.
With success came expansion. The simple garage and workshop set up wasn’t enough. With a rapidly expanding customer base both at home and abroad, we knew it was time to rise above our humble beginnings, expand our team, and find a new home.
Currently situated in Qingdao’s central business district, Maxcatch has grown significantly over the last 13 years. We now design, develop and manufacture industry-leading fly rods and reels, establishing ourselves as the leading fly fishing brands from China thanks to our factory-fresh prices, stringent quality control, and unparalleled customer support.

I've used this vest on at least a dozen fishing trips now (some up to eight hours on the river) and so far it's holding up very well. And I probably over pack it. But it's never felt too heavy or cumbersome.
I might try a smaller chest pack for days I want to go minimalist, or I might just use a lanyard for those days, and use this vest for all other trips. Overall I'm very happy with this. If you're a brand snob (as some fly fishermen are) and you always look to Simms or Patagonia or Fishpond, I say give this off-brand company a try. You might be pleasantly surprised.
This vest not only had more than ample room for my fishing gear, it has the added backpack which allowed me to pack a full lunch, 4 bottles of water, a thermos of coffee, my eyeglass case and room to store my jacket after it warmed up.
There is a special pocket in the main backpack compartment that will accommodate a 100 oz hydration pack with routing from compartment through shoulder strap for the hose.
After 11 hours of fishing some rough back country mountain streams, I never felt the weight of my gear!
The front vest storage is well thought out in placement, size and functionality.
The two front shell type fly storage compartments have slit foam fly inserts that are secured with Velcro for easy removing to load and unload while prepping for your trip.
The two front shell pockets drop down and rest in a horizontal table position, giving a nice stable surface for on the stream changing of flies and other tasks.
This fishing vest and backpack combo is very comfortable and extremely versatile in adjustments for fit. I comfortably transitioned from wearing a heavy jacket in the morning with low temps to shirt sleeves in the afternoon with minor adjustments of the straps and stowed my jacket in the backpack.
Great quality in this vest, with great features and really nice looking too! This is the best purchase I have made in a while in a time where we are often disappointed for things being less than advertised.
After spending a week comparing every fishing vest, with and without the backpack feature I could find online, I chose this one as the best fit for what I needed as this was most important to me.
Secondly, was the price....unbelievable quality for the price! I would put this up against the bigger names that come with an even bigger price tag just because of the name.
I highly recommend this vest!
Excellent amount of storage for fly boxes, tippet, etc.
Numerous mounting points for any accessory you could want.
Backpack has just enough storage for a rain fly, water filter, Nalgene bottle, and lunch with a small bit of room left over.
Backpack has a 2nd smaller, external, pouch that you can put some essentials in, like sun screen and bug repellent.
Integrated zingers are decent quality, and are a nice touch.
Water bladder compatible with ability to route nozzle through pack and onto shoulder strap.
Vest itself is lightweight and relatively breathable.
Nearly all of the zippers were in terrible condition out of the box. The zippers were in the "zipped up" position, but the teeth had come undone. I'm not at all confident in the longevity of the zippers, especially after having used the vest a number of days.
Backpack is a bit small. Sure, the backpack isn't meant to be used for camping and long hikes, but if you're going to wear a backpack all day, you might as well have the option of more storage. It would be nice if the pack were another 5-10 L larger. Possibly collapsible for days when all you need is a small storage.
Upper chest pockets are oddly placed so that the zippers are very difficult to operate.
All in all this is a great vest for the money. I'd definitely recommend it, but I'm still concerned about the zippers failing.
I was really hoping that my concern regarding the zippers would pass. Unfortunately, after 5 days of use, one of the zippers ripped and failed at it's base. It was the left chest pocket. I don't have high hopes that the other zippers will fare much better, even if I'm overly cautious.
I gave the vest/backpack 4 stars to begin, but after noticing poor zipper quality from the get go and a failed zipper after 5 days, I think 2 stars is generous.
I'm down grading to one star. Nearly all of the zippers have failed in typical cheap Chinese crap fashion after several weeks of full days on the river and trail.
I hate to say it, but don't waste your money. Spend the extra for a Fishpond Techpack.
