Fly Boxes

HannanHannan Posts: 11 Greenhorn
Any recommendations for a new box? Travel friendly is best, and its gotta be slim cause Ill be wading with it. I need to get a new one for a trip to Andros next month

Im lookin at either the Morell or Cortland foam, or maybe a Cliff box...

    The Cliff boxes are probably the best value in fly boxes out there, the crab shack's & **** barns are outstanding for smaller patterns. If you want a sealed box, I've been using both the C&F grand slams and the Umpqua double wides and they're great too. I don't really understand the point of making something waterproof when you're going to be throwing wet stuff in it from time to time, but they're still nice boxes.

    CF are great and bulletproof. As ODC says make sure you air dry anything used before putting em back in. I think the ones I have are Grand Slam and Permit. A little big for wading - I would also get something tiny for your pocket that holds a half dozen flies and leave your bigger boxes in the boat.
