    Guideline DW fly vest

    I have one and like it - sufficient room for 4 fly boxes & line, Buttties in the back. Good & lightweight, and has had a fair use this year one the Spey, Tweed & Wye.

    Thanks James, I won't be doing spools this year - too busy with vices & fishing, and anyway, it's easier to just pull off the shooting head and reload another, takes but seconds. Jim
