Call me a traditionalist, but I love the Brady fishing bags from England. I grew up fishing bait with my dad and he always carried a canvas creel. I found it worked great and was not very cumbersome or hot for the essentials. I used a vest for years but always longed for something like the old creel. The Brady bags are great. The one I use has a large interior pocket and two smaller pouches on the front. The most ingenious thing is the fasteners. They have leather straps but they latch over brass studs. This arrangement works great for one-hand operation! A sturdy ring is attached for the net and the large interior pocket has a rubber liner that comes out easily. I find this helps keep water out as well as it would keep fish slime and water in. I rarely keep fish, so this liner helps keep my fly boxes dry if I wade a bit deep.
