Over the years the darn vest got heavier and HEAVIER.
Old sports injuries are catching up,
so I like to keep only
- a few fly boxes (5-6),
- survival pack,
- bug dope,
- 3-4 spools of tippet material
- leader straightener
- line cleaner/slick
- 2nd spool of line
- Musclin and sink
The rest goes into the kit bag, reels, spools, snacks, extra smokes, 8 more boxes flies, rain coat(s), spools for making leaders, ...
