Looks like a wading belt + back support with just standard alice magazine pouches for doo dads. maybe a water bottle holder? I can't see the other side but it looks like some type of sling with a little man-purse for fly boxes

ps: mock if you will, works like a champ.


That ain't no Flooger.

Is that a Euro-nymphing sighter on that leader?

Ditched all that stuff.

Using a lanyard to hold tippet spools,nippers,hemo's, and floatant.

I put a snack and tp in the zipper pocket in my waders.

My waterproof camera goes in the outside wader pocket. My use a water bottle holder on my wading belt to hold a nalgene.

Make use of a fishing shirt with two big front pockets to hold 2 medium fly boxes.

If cold or wet- I wear a jacket and the fly boxes go in the jacket pockets.

I have cycled through the sling type, couple vests and a downs chest box and this is what I have settled on for now.

As for Packs- several of my buddies have this confluence They seem to like. Big enough to hold most gear but not too big to be bulky. I dont think you could pack a fleece into it though.
If you need that, why not just go to a bookbag/backpack?

This has caught my interests for the looks, the capacity, the comfort and the price.

Really, they furl up some 6# mono they bought because it was on sale? And to think, I thought they sat around and spent way too much cash on fancy imported bi-coloured thingies and then wrapped them around dowels to boil.

Well, garsh. Look at me, its almost like I can come up with the same ideas those brilliant competiors do without even caring.

I wonder what ELSE has been done for years without a fnacy name? (that's your cue, Pete)

You're telling me, I'm married with kids and already have a bromance with at least one forumite, I don't have time for this sort of unrequited puppy love with troutslammer.

troutslammer continually asserting something that simply is not true does not make it true even my 8 year old knows that but then again she is not all that competitive she is a master of capitalization and punctuation though so i should probably buy her a trophy because she won amirite

slammer - don't break gfen's bubble, or he'll mount that fancy Euro-nymphing Vivarelli reel on his Euro-nymphing Greys Streamflex rod, and string a couple of Czech nymphs on his leader under his Euro-nymphing sighter. Hypocracy knows no bounds with gfen and his state of denial.

Sucks on your Greys, actually. Isn't heavy enough. It does, however, prevent tip bouncing and wrapping the line when you pull up the excess.
