Man, liking the leather pouches. How about a you make me a tinder bag ? Lol. Seriously I would commission someone to make me the draw closure leather tinder/ fire kit bag. Looking for something more traditional than the molle bag I use.

I have been driving around alot lately looking for places to camp and or hike that doesn't cost money or at least not alot of money. Iron bridge is a nice area just got to call Corp of engineers to see if camping is allowed out there. there is another spot out off of 2410 by stillhouse hollow that has a small parking area and a nice hike to the water but again not sure of camping regulations. there used to be a place between kempner and lampasas called gunderland park my family used to go there when I was a kid. Really nice area lots of big shade trees picnic tables and a few rope swings out into the water. That was back in the 80's tho.
Gonna repost this reply in another section as well to see if we can get something local going .

Let me see if I can dig up the rest of the leather I used for that bag and I'll make something up for ya.. really don't sell all that much of my gear other than the jigs that I make but pretty sure we can figure something out for barter.

Sounds good man, if there is anything lacking in your kit or many leather working tools let me know. We can find something for a fair exchange

Made a new leather fishing kit wallet.. it's bigger than the first ones I made which are mainly pocket carries, but the new one still fits in a cargo pants pocket and can hold a little more gear..

Also got bored and tired of buying cheapy Walmart wallets that fall apart after a little abuse and use so took some scraps and made this wallet for myself.. might just hold up long enough to hand down to my son if he ever wants it.

What I like most about leather is that it's an easy hobby to get into. You don't need a lot of fancy expensive equipment to get started. An awl and some bank line and you can make whatever you want.

These posts make me want to try my hand at it again. I've got too many things on the burner though.

Awesome work.
