Product is fine -
By: Ocotillo from Pacific Northwest
I am an absolute beginner, feeling the water for whether or not I'll become a fly devotee, and the Pocket Buddy Fly Box, small size, is a great, compact, fly box for me. I truly appreciate the spring-hinge so I'm not stupidly opening the box upside down. However, Orvis shipping costs are unrealistic. Shippng costs too much, and it took 10 days to arrive via UPS. I believe Orvis carries the finest gear and accessoies, but I expect I won't be buying much from Orvis.com in the future. IMHO, there are too many online merchants offering free shipping, or much less expensive shipping with far faster delivery.
Nice construction -

Although light, this is a solid box with efficient and easy open/close mechanism. More than sufficient room for a good selection of flies.

Perfect fit for my vest. Holds an adequate number of flies for the day, or weekend.
Alaskan Adventure -
By: Mysport from Ft. Worth, Tx
First review ever: Trout fishing adventure for our family of 4; all equipped with Pocket Buddy Orvis fly boxes (one Midge Buddy). Just wanted to say thanks to Orvis for offering the best top quality products! I would not do this review, except our guide was surprised and said he had never seen these flyboxes and plans to order the same and provide them to his customers as they work really well when really cold hands are problematic. I gave him mine and will order another.

It's simple and compact. Fits in a smaller pocket. I use it for smaller specialty flies. The spring loaded clasp to open the case is a nice touch. Thanks Mom!
An adventure to say the least! -

We were fishing the Blue River in Southern Oklahoma for rainbows and my husband fell into a hole from knee deep water, his hip boots filled with water and he dropped his gear and scrambled again to knee deep cold water. We could not find his new Orvis clearwater fly reel with an old family bamboo rod and some of his gear. The next morning we located floating fly line around a rock and retrived the rod and reel and also the Orvis Pocket Buddy fly box floating against some weeds 100 yards downstream. Also found his cap. Glad we found the fly box because I had it engraved with his name for a birthday present. Cleaned and lubed the reel and no problem with the flys as they were all there and dry.
Perfect Small Box -

Great small box, the latch is easy to use when your hands are cold. Purchased 2 boxes, one for each of my girls to hold there nymphs. Planning on getting another for myself.

Holds flies just fine...but, I expected it to be water resistant, and it is NOT. So, it must be carried high in your vest. Cannot carry it in a sling pack or chest pact unless you carry the pack VERY high.
Thanks for a first class qualtiy fly box -

Purchased 4 for my fellow flyfishermen. Great product. Great company Orvis!
Pocket buddy fly box -
Nice fly box and I like the latch. The only thing that would be nice is a softer foam.
