Get both!! The Fanny Pack & the Mesh Vest.
Get a size larger Vest so you can put it on over a jacket for cool weather.

Re: Sinking Lines

The point is..it gets down to depths faster.

Sinking Lines

An old trick I learned was to "overline" a fast action flyrod by 2 weights.
This loads the rod quickly & gets your fly down deeper/faster due to the added weight.

Re: Right or Left hand retrieve?

Flip the bearing if its the wrong way.

Re: ORVIS Brand opinions

You can never go wrong with an Orvis Battenkill Large Arbor Flyreel for Trouting.
I would look at the Elkhorn Flyreel for 6wt or heavier.

Rods are a very personal feel. Do you like fast action...

Re: Taking it to a vote - How to blow $700 on fishing gear

I use a 4wt for stream Browns, a 3wt for stream Brookies, a 5wt for Pond Trout & a sinking line.

I love the Orvis BLA reel, Scientific Anglers line.
A fast rod for long casts on ponds.
A medium...

Re: Neewbie looking for Rod/Reel advice

That Orvis Battenkill Large Arbor reel is as sweet as it gets.
The T3 rod in 4wt will handle trout up to 6 pounds easily.
The Sage XP is a long caster that you will mature into with experience.

Re: Questions about buying some new flyline.

The sinking line is thinner that's why it casts easier. It cuts the wind better.
How deep do you need to fish..that will answer if a sink-tip will do.

Re: Fly maintenance

Leave 'em alone. You could steam a few back into shape but it's usually not needed.
Always let your flyboxes "air-out" after fishing, to avoid rusting the hooks.
