So I'm an avid fisherman, but have recently become enamoured with fly fishing. I've been wanting to try a small chest pack to hold a fly box some tools and my tippet spools. I didn't know if I would be happy with the feel of the chest pack, I'm used to a waist pack(fanny pack), therefore didn't want to shell out the cash for one. My answer was to just make myself a chest pack to try out. That way if I don't care for this style pack I'm only out a few dollars and a few hours.
I used the 200d silicone backed oxford nylon from DIYgearsupply, some scrap silnylon, 1/2" grosgrain, 1/2" webbing, 1/2" buckles, and a leftover zipper. I modeled it after Zimmerbuilt's Tenkara pack to the best of my ability.
Here's what I ended up with. Comments, criticisms welcome.
