Default Re: What's in your vest?

I opt for a jacket with lots of pockets, small backpack or sling pack. Along with the two pockets in my waders here is what I carry:

• nipper on zinger
• hemostat sometimes on zinger
• spare hemostat (see above)
• small folding knife
• extra rod in rod bag, no tube (sometimes tenkara)
• extra reel
• cell phone in waterproof case
• just the car key (manual not electronic one)
• waterproof camera and mini tripod
• depending on season (gloves/stocking cap)
• all round fly box (mix of nymphs/wets, dries, streamers)
• depending on season an extra box full of (streamers, nymphs/wets, dries, terrestrials)—sometimes I have up to 4 boxes.
• 2 clif bars
•*depending on length of trip; a samich
• collapsible poly bag of water
• depending on season - bug spray/small sunscreen, snakebite kit
• pack of gum
•*chapstick
