Typically when I fish, I like to pack light. I bring my Orvis Safe Passage Sling Pack, waders (if needed) and boots, rod and reel, polarized sunglasses, a hat or my Buff, clothes for the weather, my drivers (and sometimes boaters) and fishing licenses, my National Saltwater Angler Registry card (needed for fishing in saltwater in Maryland and a few other states now...Found Here), my debit card (just in case), my camera, a net, a tape measure, and some other small miscellaneous items depending on what in fishing for or where I am. Okay, I know, it doesn't sound light but really, I promise, it is.

Inside or on my sling pack (for freshwater) is which ever box(es) of flies I need for the outing, my waterproof wallet, a extra spool of Orvis 5X tippet, my fishing log book, a pen, my camera, a knot tool, my nippers on a zip line, forceps, my Leatherman, extra pre-tied leaders, Frog's Fanny, some lead weights, strike indicators, and a few other little stream-side tools. For saltwater, I add in some bigger leaders, change out my flies, add in a few extra hooks, a glove, hand scale, circle hook remover, and some other small miscellaneous tools.

One great tool I love, is easy to pack and efficient, is my Gorillapod. This thing is perfect for the times you go out to fish by yourself and want to get some sweet pictures.
