Founded in 1870 by John and Albert Brady, Brady was originally a manufacturer of high-quality gun cases and leather bags for use in field sports. Brady gun cases were greatly prized throughout the world; they made cases for the Sultan of Oman and the Duke of Westminster. In 1928, when John’s son Ernest took over the business, Brady first introduced a range of fishing bags, which would grew out to become the mainstay of the company.
Introduced in 1928, the original Brady Ariel Trout fishing bag (as pictured above) is the most iconic bag in the product range. It is made from durable triple-layered water resistant canvas with a beautiful English bridle leather trim and has a rubberized liner.
