Whats in your vest to tie with?

#1
So today I put togather a little on river kit, its 3" round, 2 inches tall and holds hooks, beads, swiss army knife, and a ton of random scrap pieces of tying material. Im wondering what materials you feel are usefull enough for a kit on such limited space?

If I were going to carry a small kit on stream with me, I'd have some pheasant tails, copper wire, peackock herl, beads, some grizzly hackle, moose main and dry fly dubbing. For me, that would cover what I would feel like i'd need in a pinch.

So are you going to use the tweezers for a vice? What about a bobbin?

I have never been fly fishing and needed to tie up a few quick patterns right on the spot. With boxes filled to the brim, I don't have that kind of need. I do however take a traveling tying setup whenever I am going on a week long trip, just in case I run out of a specific pattern in my box, or discover a new pattern that might be more effective for the next day.

for a vice i usally use a small piece of wood and sink the tip in, and i just wrap thread onto my finger for the bobbin.
