I'm not a fan of the chest boxes but I do feel better knowing that someone is spending more then me on fly boxes! Hope you really like your chest box!

I've been considering getting one of these boxes, http://www.anglingdesigns.com/DryTech.asp I haven't seen one in a shop yet, and I am not too keen on buying stuff off the net without seeing one first. Does anyone use one?, or even seen it before?

Or you could just throw one of those little packets of desiccant (that seems to come in every package with everything you buy) and not give up the room in the fly box.

One nice thing about the C&F is the flies stay in, try it sometime..you cannot shake them out....I have a downs chest box instead of the richardson, less money and its a nice green color..I have one of the first made ever, got it about 20 years ago...I keep all my Pine creek stuff in it...

Last year I had a gift card and bought a C&F fly box (#1506 I think). It’s the best box I ever owned. It’s the one with the flip page. The specs say it will hold 564 flies, but you can probably do 300+ comfortably. Who the heck needs that many flies on the stream anyway? I only use that one box now. You can get it for $32 if you look around, maybe cheaper.

My second choice is Bug Luggage. Another very good box.

I probably have a couple dozen fly boxes of all kinds stored in a backpack.. Plus most of them have flies in them. Some day I need to get organized, sort my flies, and I’ll find out I’ll never need another fly for a few years.

When you get down to it, probably any old fly box will do the trick.

salvelinusfontinalis,

That's an amazing brookie you have there.

Any story to tell about the "event" ?

I have a Richardson.
I can't break it, can't lose it, and it holds a LOT of flies.
I have a 3 tray model. It in no way interferes with my casting or wading.

And I never have to go back to the car for another box of flies.

That said, before I spent the bucks on the Richardson. I used the C&F boxes -- for all the reasons already posted.

And before that.....altoids tins!

They all work! :)

Just gotta find what suits your style best.


Cheers,
Dewey
