RE: Fly tying supply storage & portability
I use a soft case brief case that has multiple compartments. I bought a small tool kit bag from Cabela's that holds my renzetti vise and tools. The other thing that has helped to organize my materials is that I made separate zip-loc bags with all the materials needed to tie a particular pattern of fly. For example, parachute dry fly bag contains different colors of dubbing to match, antron for the post, z-lon for chuck and moose mane for tail. When I take my travel kit, it is organized and I am ready to tie different patterns without having to take a whole lot of materials. If I am going to NY for salmon/steelies/browns, then I take the materials for that trip. I have been on weekend trips where I am glad I made my tying stuff portable.
