Verified Buyer Reviewed by telern from Front Range, [...] on Sunday, August 10, 2014Like everything here on STP, if you get this on discount with a coupon, you're getting a decent fly box at a fairly great price. Sure you can pay $40+ for one with a fancy fish print on the outside but that isn't gonna catch more fish.
The inner leaf is easily removable. I ended up buying two boxes; one for dry/hoppers and one for streamers. The streamer box I took the inner leaf out to make room for the streamers. Provided you don't have a ton of size 4-0 flies you can hold a lot.
The clasp seems solid enough. Yes the hinge is made of aluminum, and therefore if you live in a corrosive environment, or constantly drop your box in the water, it will rust out. The foam inserts were a little flimsy and needed some gorilla glue help to hold one down. But they hold the flies in place well enough.
I'm not a professional guide and get out on the water about 6 times a month. I'm looking forward to using and filling these boxes up over time.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by moosaki from WV/MD/PA on Tuesday, April 29, 2014This replaced 2 fly boxes in my vest. It is just as secure in closure, holds more flies and fits easily into my wading vest. I like the folding divider. I can sort the flies and streamers on different sides and have only one place to look for what I want. I will get one for saltwater.
Reviewed by Trico22 from Mass. on Thursday, December 26, 2013This seemed like a good box at first, but after one season in the salt the hinge rusted so bad its hard to open and close.
Reviewed by Guillermo Brajovic from Chile on Wednesday, July 10, 2013The box is very well constructed and have plenty of space. Nevertheless, I doubt it will hold 500 flies in real conditions. The "deep" side of the box (for dry flies with hackle, I presume) doesn't allow to easily place flies near the border. This is my only complain. Otherwise, a very good product.
Reviewed by Ted the fly fisherman from La Jolla CA on Wednesday, May 22, 2013The capacity of this box allows me to hold all my nymphs in one place and then select those I need for a particular place into a smaller box.
