I'm fairly minimalist, though it somewhat depends on how far from the car I'll be, and how exhausting the conditions.

Normally, I have my Richardson, 2 spools of tippet, a wheel of shot, and that's IT. Now, the Richardson holds a crap load of flies, my floatant, nippers, forceps, and 3 leaders.

If it's gonna be a long strenuous day and I'll be away from the car all day long, I carry one of those camo fanny/butt packs meant for hunters. Carries 2 drink bottles and a lunch.

Jeeeeeeez, I think I would have to be considered the anti-minimalist! I always have way too much stuff but on the plus side, I never find myself wishing I'd have brought that!
George, you and I think alot alike LOL, well at least when it comes to the amount of stuff we carry to the stream. I also carry too much but I'm used to it and don't think I will change any time soon.

If I am going out for only a few hours, I take a lanyard (home made - yea, I'm frugal) and an old fanny pack I won at a raffle. Truth be told, this is really all I need anytime I go but if I am going for more then a few hours, I take my vest.

I prefer a vest to a chest pack. If I need fluids then I have a back pack.

I wear a vest and usually no shirt no waders, just wading shoes. Get to a good spot rig up, hang the vest on a tree or sit it on a rock and fish. I have been wanting to look into chest pack and one of those necklace things because vests are overkill for most of the fishing i do
