It's 12 degrees outside, with a wind chill of 1, and so it's that time again! What's in your vest? Yep, I got the bug and decided to clean out from Fall and actually switched to an older vest that for some reason (it was probably cold outside some night...) I switched out of for a new one. Here's all the stuff in my vest not counting the flies and my net. On the lower right, WAY too many ways of floating flies, including a bottle of Gink adn a bottle of Frog's Fanny. Just above those, a container of sinkers and a ball of moldable weight putty. Above those are a couple of speciment bottles (I actually do use these when I catch something I know the fish like), and a stringer just in case. Down the middle are a busted multi-tool (in cheap ones a screw always comes out eventually. Don't buy cheap multis!) and a foreceps. Next are some sanitary hand wipes, and below those, a stack of leaders and some line/leader connectors just in case someday my whole leader and connector get pulled off (yeah, I know, the odds are against it, but it could happen!). Below that is deliar #1 a measuring tape, and below that a Fenwick tippet wallet holding 4 spools and 3 spools that don't fit. To the left of those is deliar #2 a Berkely scale, and above that is a stomach pump which I use rarely and very gently I promise! Um, please don't tell that I did all this on the couch! Oh, by the way, there was a #6 Zonker, a #4 Black Ghost, a #4 Dragonfly nymph, a #4 Sheep minnow, and a #10 Stimulator all loose in one pocket. That doesn't count as "flies" though, 'cause they weren't in a box! They also are a the reason why I reach very carefull when I go deep into my vest pockets. So, beside fly boxes and your net, what's in your vest?
