I have to admit it-I want to carry everything. I know there are good arguments to go minimalist, but empty pockets must be filled! I need help. But you never know when a green drake hatch or salmon flies could crawl on the east-west prong of the North-South River. When it happens I will be ready. I have been hauling around those Montana fly patterns for 10 years and I might have my day in East Tennessee. I use a vest to carry around my micro fly shop.
