Fly Box Tour - Box #3 Caddis and Mayfly Nymph Box

This box is still has a lot open slots in it, hope to have it filled by the end of the month. When I first got this box I didn't realize how many flies it will hold. When this box is filled you wouldn't want to to loose it. Also it hard to think about the retail value of this box filled with flies. Each leaf holds 230 flies, times 4 leafs equals 920 flies in total. At $2.00 per fly equals a lot of money.

Sides 1 and 2 are caddis nymphs. Sides 3 and 4 are mayfly nymphs.

Any suggestions to help fill this box would be appreciated.

  1. That has a ton of room! What box is that?

  2. Now Carl, you bought that box from me almost a year ago. Let's get to work, shall we? Mine's already filled, absent the few fly I gave away on the river on Friday. tee hee! My flies sure don't look as good as your though.

  3. ummm to get them full.....? stay out of them.

  4. very nice, thanks for the peek

    was curious...... and wasn't to sure how to contact you, on your biot emerger what color combos do you use for a pmd?

  5. On my PMD Biot emerger I use a pale yellow dubbing and the shrimp colored Flouro fibre form Metz/Umpqua. Same color biot and trailing shuck as the BWO verison
