Greys Fishing Vest
When fly fishing, you need to make decisions fast. For example, the wind can drop, and Trout start feeding sub-surface. All of a sudden you need to swap lines or maybe even change fly line and leader. If you end up taking too much time to switch, you could miss out on all the action. Therefore having all the right fishing tackle and fly fishing accessories to hand is essential.
It might not be practical to carry a tackle bag because the water you are fishing may require an agile, stealthy approach. Or, you could be fishing a small Stillwater and only need - in addition to your fly rod, fly reel and fly line - a little fly box, some tippet, line cutters, and some floatant. With this scenario, a fly fishing waistcoat is perfect, and the Greys Fishing Vest falls into that category.
It has all the room you need for the items mentioned above, but besides, it will afford you the place to carry, some more spools, bite indicators, snips, retractable tools, sinkant and a retractable landing net. It is the perfect solution for the game fisherman on the move. It's not exclusive to Trout or Salmon fishing. Use it for Pike or Grayling fishing, or any other type of fishing that requires additional pockets and handiness. Or maybe, you have a fishing jacket that lacks pockets; in this case, the vest can be worn over your existing coat to give you easy access to all your fly fishing tools and gear.
The vest features two chest pockets, a foam fly patch, two main pockets with blue zips - which have additional outer compartments, and plenty of clips for tools and retractors. There is also a clip a the back to attach a scoop landing net on elastic or retractor. Additionally, there is plenty of room for bits like leader rings, poly-leaders, flies and medium-sized fly boxes. The zips are fantastic quality and feature convenient zip pulls to avoid fumbling around, especially if your hands are cold.
Competition fly anglers would especially find this vest useful because time is of the essence and quick fly changes are the norm. Therefore the handy foam fly patch can speed things up, or, allow you quick access to a fly that you were using earlier. Organisation and comfort is the goal of this garment. It will help you to be a better-organised fisherman so this vest will enhance or improve your efficiency on the water, bankside, boat or loch-side.
