Mystery Solved



Finally I've gotten to the bottom of a little mystery that has bugged me ever since the Fermanagh trip. I had bough a whole rake of new flies for this trip, tonnes of them, mainly drys like daddies and sedges as i was looking forward to some great dry fly action. The problem was, once i arrived at the lake my new fly box had disappeared. I searched everywhere for it. Finally I came to the conclusion It had dropped out of my pocket at a previous lake. Only today i got the urge to investigate all the hidden and not so hidden pockets on my vest, lo and behold there it was. The whole time i had cursed my bad luck at Fermanagh the bloody box was on my person. Considering that the box is a fair size, i am now questioning the usefulness of my vest's 20 odd pockets

it's a bit overboard alright. it has two zingers on it so i can get to clippers and pliers quickly, everything else is a struggle

Sometimes technology and advancement just take us in the wrong direction. Remember the KISS theory, Keep It Simple Stupid. I live by it.

@ Fish whisperer - I always have the intentions of folowing the kiss principle but it always gets complication at some point :)

@ Mizlan - it's important to be able to laugh about the little things in life.

Usually you can't have enough pockets... Unless of course you lose things int hem ;)

actually it look like a great vest to have fishing. I should get my husband one of these, but warn him of the side effects. lol

That's pretty funny but you know, it would be even funnier if it hadn't happened to me with my fly dope this summer.

Cheers,

Since writing this post i've recently found there is another two wee pockets for holding line with line dispensors. Is there anything this vest won't do!
