Re: Evolution or Revolution Regarding Fishing Vests
I always seem to go back to a vest as well. The only time I go minimalist is when I'm fishing small spring creeks this is when I use a waist pack and lanyard. A vest just stands the test of time for convenience for me and everything is where I need it. I have been using a Columbia III forks vest for a few years now. For me I always carry a net (except spring creeks) and having a D ring on the back of my vest for a magnetic lanyard to attach my net is a big convenience. Vests or wading jackets seem to only be the option for this style of carrying a net. I have also lightened my load as much as possible by using ultra slim fly boxes and only carrying the days worth of gear.
