Re: Orvis Dropper Rig Fly Box Review
I of course have one of these boxes (one of the first-perks for working for Orvis). They are great specially in the winter when I am using such tiny flies, however, right now I use the box more for my hand tied leaders (different tapers)
I still prefer my "Y" over tying off the bend. I will also at times tie in a long tippet, slide the first fly on almost to the knot. Make a loop, pass the fly through two times, cinch leaving a small loop, then tie the dropper off the end. So basically tying dropper off the eye. Get more hook ups on both this way also.
