Cruising through MEC yesterday, I was looking for something I could use as a tying travel kit. I found it.

Small carry-all

It's got lots of storage space and it should hold pretty much everything I need to take with me on a trip. At roughly 1/8th the price of the FishPond bag (albeit not specifically designed for fishing) it's a great deal.

I've got a fancy shoe box that my Merrell hikers came in, for my "home" kit. I needed something I could pack in a suitcase for when I travel and the MEC "man-purse" certainly fit the bill :)

I have had many different travel kits through the years.
Some were good, some not so much.
Right now I have similar materials in clearish rubbermaids which go into a rough tote.

I will be building a nice wood one over the winter.

The only time it will come out is when I'm in the hotel room, so public scrutiny will be minimized. I was really amazed at how much stuff I could put into it without it bulging at the seams.

I had a problem at the airport though...when I checked my suitcase, I forgot I left the head cement in the man purse...I ended up going "behind the scenes" to take it out after they x-ray'd it. It's considered "hazardous material".

Mrmugs: Would that be the "bro" or the "mansier"? :D

Anyway...that small bag ain't going to cut it for what I take with me to fishing trips. I have an old Plano saltwater tackle box that I use as my portable tying kit (it's always packed and ready to go, just have to grab it), and it barely has enough capacity as it is.

I picked up a dragonfly reel case. And it holds all I need for a trip. Shoulder strape and handle and comes with dividers to keeps things seperated. Soft cover but sturdy enough so that things do not get crushed.

I could make the thing fit, but this one won't.
20 some odd years ago I met a fellow on the Skagit who had the nicest portable tying desk I have ever seen.
I never measured it, but I will use the same basic design to create my own.
Usually I bring enough materials to stock a small shop..
