Fly Fishing Vests are a great way to organize your fly fishing gear on the water. Personally I really like them as all of your equipment is in pockets right on your chest. Most fishing vests have a series of zippered pockets so you can hold a lot of leaders, tippet and flies.

Simms Fishing products have long been the standard in fishing excellence. This vest continues that tradition. With 19 pockets, water proof zippers and light weight material, this vet is a great addition for serious anglers.
I've found that Simms clothing is top quality and last seeming forever.
The Fishpond is quickly becoming one of the best names in the fishing business. This fly fishing vest offer 17 pockets with many gear attachment tabs, and places to for cord connections (such as for your net.)
It comes in a driftwood color which reminds me of the autumn leaf change on the east coast.
This fly fishing vest is worth taking a serious look at for a few reasons. First, if you need some serious storage, then this vest will fit the ticket. In addition to being a chest pack, it is also a backpack. So if you like to hike into locations, this vest will help you take everything you need.
Second, I hate getting water in my vest pockets when deep wading. This fishing vest has front pockets which will not get wet in deep water. That is great for carrying other fly boxes.
This fly fishing vest is a great lightweight vest. I think the vest is best used for walking around ponds and lakes where you don't need to take everything with you. If you tend to wade in a stream or river all day, then this vest might not hold enough for you.
