Fly Box Organization
Box #7 is my hopper box. This box contains hopper, ants, crickets and beetles. This box has lots of foam in it.
Box #8 & # 9 are my streamer boxes. I have a small streamer box and a larger streamer box. I find more of my streamers are going articulated
Box #10 is my eggs and worms box. This box has various types of san juan worms, pig stickers and eggs
Box #11 is my still water box. This box is full of chironomids, scuds, damsel nymphs and various other still water patterns.
Keeping your fly boxes organized can be a plus in a lot of ways. My boxes are continually evolving. You can organize your boxes by fly type or by water way. What ever you choose can make your time on the water more enjoyable.
Also take the time to put your name and phone number on your fly boxes. 95 percent of all fly fisherman would return your fly box to you if you lost on the river.
So take the time this winter and devise a plan for your fly boxes and you can reap the benefits this upcoming fishing season.
