Hi

Does anyone know of any South African tackle shop selling fish kill bags?

They a little to pricey to import at the moment due to the poor rand/ dollar exchange rate

Its a cold storage bag used to store your catch.

Its water proof, made of an outer heavy duty pvc material with an inner thinner vynil and closed cell foam used for insulation. It also has a heavy duty zip at the top and a drain plug.

You put ice or ice bricks into them and they can stay cold for up to 36 hours.

Its perfect to use on boats or fishing paddle skis as its easy to manipulate them into spaces within the boats hatches.

If you have ever watched the fishing program pacific warriors, they use them there.

Overseas these bags come in all different sizes, smaller bags for the reef species and larger bags for pelagic species.

It keeps your catch fresher and preserves the quality of the flesh when kept cold.

The problem is i cant find any one who manufactures them here in SA and to import these bags is simply to expensive with the rand dollar, shipping fees and import dutys

Also the name "Fish Kill bag" sounds a bit heavy, but if you do a google search thats the name of these bags

This bag was imported and advertised for sale a few years ago. Unfortunately the chap who imported them sold out within days of advertising. He has not imported again because its now to expensive to sell in SA

These bags seem amazing, have seen them on Pacific warriors.

Question is, are we willing to pay this price on a bag?

Necrovis, if they were manufactured locally they would cost a fraction of the price. In the US they are sold at between $150 - $400 depending on the size bag you want, then the shipping fees run at $75 - $90 then import duty at $65 - $80 now multiply all that by our exchange rate which fluctuates between R15.50 - R16 to the dollar.

Yes, of course, our currency is a killer at the moment regarding imports.

Why not just use a Surfboard bag? Get one of the decent ones, and have someone modify the zipper to your needs, and add a drain...

Hi roland, thats the engle bags. He imported them a few years back and sold out very quickly. He unfortunately does not have any anymore and has no plans on importing them again due to the costs involved

Thanks Bennie, i've chatted to Mark at fast sails. He asked me to forward images of the bag to him, which i've done.
He will be getting back to me soon, to let me know if they can manufacture it and at what price
