^^There, I splained it in 3 words.

Anyway, towards the OT. I've settled on a Richardson chest BOX. There's a similar product made by Downstream.

I don't bother with outside drying patches, I just put used flies back in the box they came from, which is easy with these things as you don't have to fumble around for the fly box. They aren't air-tight so they'll dry just fine in there. If you wanted, they have little rings designed to hold the floatant of your choice in a handy location. You could probably resize that for a pill bottle or container of your choice.

You can also get pouches to attach to the straps for whatever tippet, shot, etc. you want to carry. Or skip the pouches and put that stuff in your pocket.

They are expensive compared to a chest pack. But you only ever have to buy one.

are you not worried that if you catch a vine or creeper with your foot and fall flat on your front, that that hard box could puncture a lung or something ?

i take at least three swallow dives on the riverbank each year, so that would concern me.

You strike me as someone that is a tad clumsy.

You are joking right? " puncture a lung or something ? "

I just can't see any of my fly boxes put'n a hole in my lung, less I was parachuting into my fishing zone and landed wrong. You do seem to fall a lot. Do you carry a flask?

Puncture a lung? Might bruise your chest a little if you hit just wrong, but that's true with anything. It ain't puncturing anything. There's nothing sharp coming out the back, it's flat. It's no different than having fly boxes in a chest pack and falling on them.

I can't see my feet, that's true, but then again, I can't do that even without the box!

i have been looking at upgrading to the william joseph confluence, but my 10 year old wallmart chest pack will not die and it holds 2 cans of beer for when i get thirsty.

if you guys are having trouble seeing your feet buy bigger boots or eat 1 less cheeseburger.

Don't think I can change my foot size. But yeah, the cheeseburger thing, I resemble that remark. It'll take far more than 1 less, though....
