Re: C&F Fly Boxes: Are They Worth It?
Just too literal. One can't write about fly boxes without getting into flies and the gear we cast them with...the point of quality and creative property is just being broadened out a bit. And there is nothing wrong with a Plano, as long as it is a real one. Many of us, including me, have Dremel tooled out some hinged plastic box and lined it with cut-to-shape dense foam with fine results. WT, you love cane rods so surely you are an admirer of quality work. This thread, a still snow flying riff on the Nipper thread, is not about if you like C&F boxes or not. Really it is about authenticity verses fake and fly fishers responsibility toward the conflicting economic forces of product produced by fly fishers for fly fishers vs. those who steal ideas and make money by copying the idea in an Asian factory that wouldn't know a trout stream from a sewage ditch.
