    Default Fly tying kit

    Anyone ever put together a small light weight kit to put in their daypack or backpack for backcountry trip? Just something to tie a few flies around camp. If so, what did you include in it?

    My kit is small enough for car camping but not small enough for a backpack but could easily be downsized enough for a backpack. I'll do a full run down today and post it up.

    I carried such a kit with me when I went to Montana several years ago. I had the usual in it such as a small vice, some black thread, small tinsel, and a few assorted feathers. I was fishing way up in the mountains. One morning a small tan generic mayfly was hatching. I didn't have anything that I felt was close enough to match it, so I tied up a dry that was close, using only hackle; i.e., hackle fibers for the tail, a stripped quill for the body, hackle tips and hackle for the wings. The brook trout really slammed it. Most hit as soon as the fly hit the water.
