vest or chest pack
I wore vests for many years, then got tired of the weight and the warmth. Switched to a FlyteDeck, which is based on an Okuma aluminum fly box, and a fishing shirt with two more Okumas in the pockets, along with some other stuff. After a few seasons decided I didn't have enough room for other necessities. Now I'm using a JW Outfitters Trout Plus chestpack with the Turtleback pack option. I can carry everything I need for fishing in the chestpack, and food and miscellaneous gear in the backpack. JW Outfitters doesn't exist any more. A similar product which is sold by our host, Little River Outfitters, is the William-Joseph Confluence pack.
