About this project

Our product the SimpliFLY is a sleek, compact octagon-shaped box that holds EVERYTHING needed to enjoy a day (or multiple days) fishing on the river or lake.  Since it attaches to our adjustable shoulder harness, it can be optimally placed near the torso of the angler allowing easy access to all the tools & gear needed.  It’s the smallest and lightest product on the market, yet boasting the most functionality!

All fly fishermen and tenkara fishermen we know have the same complaint: "It’s not quick & easy to get ready for fishing."  The current option of a vest/pack for holding gear is bulky & disorganized; it limits choices to dress for the weather and inhibits their ability to move & cast freely.   In other words, it cramps their style!   Our product’s compartments are fully customizable & though initially designed for fly-fishing, will be a handy & essential tool for all fishermen including tenkara.  Get the SimpliFLY and simplify your fishing trips!  We hope to build a brand as we have several other innovative ideas to ease the lives of fisherman everywhere.

We have currently chosen our factories to build and develop our product, we just need your help to pay for the molds and get our first order placed and shipped.  We welcome any ideas you may have to help us improve our service to you.  

SimpliFLY patent pending.

CONVENIENCE AT YOUR FINGERTIPS  The SImpliFLY comes equipped with 3 zingers.  One has a pair of hemostats attached to help with de-hooking fish and grabbing small, pesky components.  Attached to another zinger is a pair of nippers, every fly fisherman appreciates nippers as opposed to using their front teeth to cut line, ouch!  The third zinger has an O-ring so you can attach your favorite floatant (not included), line straightener (not included) or whatever item you’d like to "hook" to it.

THE BACKSIDE FLY DRYING PAD  Sometimes you’ve got to move quick when you’re matching the hatch.  Instead of spending precious time trying to find where the heck to put your wet fly, you can throw it on the fly drying pad and put it where it goes later, then get back to reelin' in the next big one.  In the meantime your fly gets nice and dry, bonus!

THE DINNER TABLE  We thought why not make it super convenient to access the equipment you use most?  Flip the SimpliFLY open and welcome to the tabled-design work station.  Here you can access the seven fly bins, the integrated sinker divider, and your strike indicators (sinkers & indicators not included).  When you’ve got what you need, just toss it up and let the magnets do the rest of the work so you can get back to fishing. This feature is simply awesome, you’re going to love it!

TIPPET DISPENSER  Flat-out genius!  Ever open your pack to go for more tippet and find a giant rat’s nest?  With the SimpliFLY’s patent-pending tippet dispenser there’s no need to worry about that again.  The tippet dispenser is another super convenient feature the SimpliFLY has to offer.   You can load up to 3 tippets in this bad-boy and have them at your fingertips without even opening your pack!  Load the first tippet spool onto the peg, and add divider no. 1, then load your second tippet spool, add divider no. 2, now throw your third tippet spool on, thread the lines and close ‘er up (the dividers are keyed to keep the tippets from rotating together).  The best part of this feature is that it is accessible when the pack is closed!   Now you have 3 different tippets available to you at a moments notice.   Oh, and by the way it also holds 2 leaders & is tenkara-compatible, another bonus!

EXPANSION BOX  Feel you don’t have enough fly storage capacity?  That’s why we added the expansion box.  The SimpliFLY’s hinge has been designed to snap apart so you can add fly capacity if desired.  The expansion box is larger than most fly boxes out there so no worries about running out of room to bring along your favorites.  Heck, keep your salt flies in one and throw your big freshwater streamers in another.  Customize each expansion box for the various places you fish.

EMBEDDED NEODYMIUM MAGNETS  You can count on the SimpliFLY’s latch never wearing out since it consists of embedded extremely strong neodymium magnets that make it very convenient to open and close tightly.  We’ve also embedded two magnets to hold the hemostats firmly in place.

ADJUSTABLE YET COMFORTABLE  With other packs, you’re very limited to what you can wear, that sucks for winter fishing, booo!  With the SimpliFLY’s adjustable shoulder harness you can literally wear what you want, adapt to any weather condition and stay dry and comfortable.  Since the harness is elastic it holds the pack comfortably against your chest so it’s not dangling in the way messing up your cast.

 SimpliFLY vs. Brand X  With other packs they can be too big and heavy, check out how compact ours is and weighing in at 1lb 1oz, it still gets the job done without compromising what you need.

Risks and challenges

CAD design is done. Prototyping is done. We have already spent time with our factories and have chosen the right partners to develop the SimpliFLY. We have a mandatory initial start-up cost of $87,500 (which includes the costs to ship our product from our factory). We have already invested what we can, & need help with the rest!
