There are two types of river kingfisher. One has lots of brightly coloured plumage, a long beak, and vision allowing it to see underwater. The other is built of tan recycled commercial fishing net material called Cyclepond, has three hard pockets on the front for flies, two pockets on the back, a rear D-ring for a securing a net, plenty of extra zippered pockets for storing odds and ends, a nifty Hypalon tab for securing hemos, fleece lined handwarmer pockets, and is worn by a creature that must wear special eyeglasses to see what lies sub-surface.
Both are sleek and specifically designed for catching fish, but Fishpond only offers the latter.
