The original inspiration for my interest in leathework came from a vegetable tanned fly fishing satchel that Sam found online. At $300, it was easy to identify it as out of my price range. So I set out to build a better mousetrap.
Made of a chap leather wih natural pull-up, my fly fishng satchels are more weather resistant than veg tan leather coated with resolene. I've also been able to add rustc touches, like the polished antler toggle.
As a little bit of a fly fishing minimalist, I like the idea of having only three items to pack in my civic's trunk: hip waders, fly rod in tube, and my leather fly bag. The bag will hold my reel, spare spool, tippets, two or three fly boxes, and license..
It's also rugged enough to match the freestone streams in the wilderness sections of Montana's National Forests. Fish on!
Here is the original that started it all in rustic brown!

Here are three in rustic spruce. The one on the left is reserved for Maggie. The other two will be looking for caring homes.
