Custom Sewn Decoy Bags


Recommended Posts

One of my off-season projects was to get these decoy bags made for the boat.


I bought the heavy Cordura material last winter and I recently got a local upholsterer to sew them up for me.


They will hold about 9 geese or 14 duck floaters per side, leaving plenty of floor space for all of our other gear and up to three people.


The front sides have bungee sewn in so that when you pull them out, they snap back tightly.

They are anchored at the top and bottom with SS screws through brass eyeylets.

There are also drain holes in the bottom of each section (2 sections per bag) to allow for drainage.






In retrospect, I should have made the pockets with a little more bellow at the bottom and perhaps had the bungee side a bit taller than the attached side.

But it's not bad for a first edition, and it sure as heck saves some space in the small boat.


Incredibly, the rig cost me about $150.
