Vest Or Chest Pack?
There seems to be tons of fly fishing chest packs on the market. I have tried several and mostly found them to by annoying. They are bulky and stick out too much, often catching line and leader at the worst times. I end up feeling like I am trying to shove my Christmas tree through the front door, across the living room and into the stand. Just too much struggling for my liking. My solution was to go back to my tried and true regular old vest. There are pockets for tools, fly boxes and supplies and I don't have all kinds of tools dangling off of me. There is plenty of storage in my vest. A word of wisdom; you do not have to cram your vest with everything you own. Keep it light and keep it simple.
