The reason i prefer those over other styles is because the clip is really good on them. Ive had others that have popped open in my bag before and picking loose trebbles out of a tackle bag is no fun.
I think snowbee do a similar box to the one you describe from c&f. I got one a few years back from john norris. Foam in the top for hooks, waddingtons and drying flies. Then a latched compartent on the other side for the tubes.After my small Snowbee (no longer made) disintegrated I bought one of the C&F small boxes, which is an ideal size and very convenient in in use. The foam in the lid holds hooks securely, while the magnetically secured flap keeps the tubes in their compartments. It's slightly expensive but very well made and robust. The strongest point is not having to worry about the tubes when you have the main lid open.
Glad to hear it - just ordered one with the Black Friday discount!Got a loop one recently, really lovely. It was £45 but you can get 20% off that just now. Managed to get all my tubes and cut down my dressed flies (to the ones I actually use) to all go in, which 3 compartments for hooks, it’s fully waterproof. Really impressed but it is at the top end of the price range.
Arrived today and I have to say it looks like the business for a single box to hold all the flies I might need for a day’s fishing - tubes and singles ‘ doubles. Very impressed!
Glad you liked it, now all we need is for it to be 1st Feb!
Just stick your chosen hook on the tube and secure in an ethafoam fly box , you can carry all your flies,singles doubles etc in 1 box ,less clutter in your jacket, I see pockets bulging on videos , at the end of a fishing day seldom I use more than 4 flies or tubes ?
This is true, I have just got the one box now and happy with that. Trimmed right down
