Default Re: Essential fly fishing gear

I believe in simplicity, maybe because of my life at home is so crazy, but I try not to take much at all, rod, Simms fanny pack with flies, nippers (finger nail clippers lol), forceps, extra tippet, a drying cloth and sometimes I buy floatant, but rarely and my net.

For clothing it all depends on the weather, but I never go without my Ray Ban sunglasses and goat sleeve.

It's a fish release gizmo, works great, eliminates the need for a net, here's a link to a previous post on this forum with a little more detail -

Also for anyone interested, if you look at the bottom of my blog there is a video showing how to use the rubber band to magically restore your fly to brand new condition -

Sorry for all the links, I couldn't figure out how to post the video directly here.
