As anyone who fishes with me knows, I am a big fan of C&F design boxes. This patch will replace my old C&F MSF Fly Patch and Protector that is now on the bottom of some Deep Creek pool that fell off my vest years ago. While the ideal of that product was good the execution was poor. The patch is connected by a pin that is glued on to the system insert. The glue is weak and failed on me, thus I lost several awesome flies that slay the local waters. The Chest Patch design is similar as it appears to use the same glued on pin system it also has clips that can be attached via split rings for fail safe in case the glue from the pin fails.

C&F Design Chest Patch
Arriving just in time for my weekend trip, the C&F design Chest Patch will be my primary local water fly box. Fly selection is of no real consequence with out local trout. They are aggressive and will generally take just about anything you throw at them. As a result, I refuse to cast anything but dry flies at them. Sure I could catch more fish and larger ones at that if I went subsurface but I'm content with fishing them "properly." But how I look at it is, if I wanted to nymph I would just go to the Sierras and catch some fat fish instead of trying my luck at the local dinks.
