maybe minimalistic would be better, shirt pocket for fly box and a neck lanyard for tippet and basic tools. Anyone using this system?
I tend to be minimalistic also. I wear a lanyard with tippet and basic tools and a couple a small flyboxes in shirt pockets for mtn fishing. If hiking any distance, I wear a small waistpack with a water bottle and a snack. For warmwater wading I have a small vertical chest/over shoulder pack big enough for a couple of fly boxes for poppers and streamers and tippet.
You might want to check out a vertical thin chestpack like the new Orvis one or the fishpond san juan pack.
