How do you carry a fishing net with a sling pack?
The Guide version of the Orvis Sling pack has a built in padded net holder. The smaller versions of the sling pack do not have a net holder. They do have a D ring where a net retainer could be attached.

How do you set up a fly fishing sling pack?
You can set up your sling pack however is comfortable for you. Typically, tippet spools are put on the tippet whippet bar. Nippers are attached to a zinger via the zinger port. A forceps can be attached at the shoulder docking station. Smaller items are placed in the smaller compartment pockets and fly boxes are in the larger compartment. Lunch or raingear can also be stowed in the larger compartment.

Great pack that will hold everything you need for one day and more. There are a lot of features and lots of easy access points for the items you use most. Sling can be worn on either side.
