Here's the thing. C&F lost their patent. C&F equivalent boxes now are $10 all day long. My boxes are $10.

Add me to the list of resident PAFF tools, I'm a C&F box fan. Apparently there are a few of us. I've been through almost every type of fly box and keep going back to C&F. Why? They've lasted longer than the others and kept my flies in better shape--not to mention I don't lose them. YMMV.

Yes, it's true they have lost their pattent, but only as recent as sometime this year I believe. Hence why there's an influx of similar style boxes this year. Perhaps in the future I'd look for a C&F alternative, but I'm of the school of "don't fix what ain't broke". To each their own.

I almost lost my mind when I dropped $25 on a SA nymph box last week. $750 rod, $300 reel, $100 line w/ a $5 fly box. :)

I think spending the money for expensive fly boxes is ridiculous.

I'm in the <$5 camp.

Oh, and best dry fly storage?

I like the cheap Basspro foam boxes. What I would pay good money for, however, is some tool to come organize them for me.

I went to Wal-mart in there sewing section/craft section and found a cloth case that holds 6 plastic boxes with about 27 slots in each box. Cost......$20. also cloth case has pockets for smaller boxes. stores bass flies in one, tippet spools in another, Pa. Pocket fishermans Fly book in another. I thought from what i have seen it looks like a good deal with plenty of storage. I picked up a second for Regular Hatch Flies
