    Weak magnet - 7/14/2015

    Just loaded the 8 compartment box with small midges last weekend. Turned it over like the person did in the fly shop but my flies fell into the lid (luckily, the lid was closed). I am hoping the flies become more magnetized as they sit in the box so I don't spill them in the river.

    Super Slim Box is Best Box Ever - 6/19/2015
    By: from Driftless area of Wisconsin

    This has become my go to box for all of my smaller trout flies. It's the perfect size for vest or pocket. I can preview the contents through the clear cover and the magnet holds all in place even in the wind.

    Super Slim Vest Fly Boxes - 4/29/2015
    By: from Colorado Springs

    These boxes take up far less room in my vest than the klunky ones I've been carrying for years. I bought these so I could carry fewer flies in the stream but have just as much choice in what I used. They worked great and for the money, these boxes are just about the best thing going.

    This box works great for holding small nymphs and midges. Fits nicely in your vest, chest pack, or shirt pocket.The magnetic bottom holds flies securely and the 8 sections can keep flies sorted by pattern or color.

    Purchased this box for all of my small flies that I just purchased. Works perfectly. I'm impressed with the detail. It will also work well for short trips to the stream. Can fit into my front pouch, or backpack easily.

    Nice fly box. Size fits in your hand easily, and easy to open. I got the eight compartment, and the open compartments work well for me to pick out flies.

    Versatile Box - 2/26/2015

    I have been using these boxes in various sizes for a few years now becasue they are slim and take up minimal space in my vest or pack but they also work great with my portable fly tying kit. I stock a magnetic sectionaled box with a specific hook type and range of sizes. I.e. barbless dry flies sizes 10-22. This way instead of sorting through multiple packets of hooks I have what I need in a few magnetic boxes.

    Just the job - 2/3/2015
    By: from Oxford, UK

    Like many fly fisherman I'm a magpie when it comes to flies: I collect pretty, shiny, drab, novel - anything that might work. So a small fly box is the ideal aide memoire that 'less is more'. This box is neat, well constructed and slim line - ideal for imitative wet patterns, small nymphs and buzzers. I like the clear lid too - you can keep your hands warm until you decide what to use next! An excellently thought out piece of kit.

    Love this flybox. Fits in shirt pocket as well as jeans pocket. Slides in where seemingly no more room in the vest.
