Tech Vest

| Comments


I recently purchased a high tech fishing vest that may be the organizational design that I have needed for over forty years of fly fishing. Designed by Les Zuck, a Montana native and ardent fly fisher, his Tech Vest accommodates all the gear you commonly need in a highly engineered compact vest. I especially like the rod holder and the custom designed tool box in the center with four retractors for tools such as nipper and clamps.


I hope you will visit the Tech Vest site. You will note that on all three of my web sites I do not have product sponsors, and all the products that I endorse I paid cash for the product and enthusiastically endorse. I have been waiting for a cloth vest to wear out for over fifteen years, but I couldn’t wait more years – I bought the Tech Vest. Check out all the well thought out features.


Big River Nymph Set-up

Tip from The Fly Shop / Redding, California

One successful technique to employ during October is a strike indicator, lead split-shot, a single egg pattern and one or two nymphs. A smaller version of this set-up can be successfully used in the smaller waters of the Sierra and Cascade Mountains.
