Attempting to be a minimalist...I've carried on average 2, but this year I'm going to try to keep it down to 1. I'll keep others in my car or at camp to transfer into my Cliff Super Days Worth.

I carry varying numbers depending on what and where I am fishing but seldom no more than four. In my bag there's usually another four or five minimum and at times up to ten or more.

Most times I carry one or two but lately I pick a handful of confidance flies stick them in my hat (and call it macaroni).

I carry two, a leather wallet for streamers and a small wheatley for wet and dry fly's. I should only be carrying a streamer wallet, still learning how to fish them properly.

I carry 2 really small boxes. 1 with wolly buggers and nymphs, plus a couple of indicators and split shot, and another with dries. So far that's worked ok.

Default Re: How Many Fly Boxes Do You Carry In Your Vest/Pack?

Usually I carry two boxes. Either one with nymphs and one with dry flies or one with bigger streamer (for pike) and one with smaller streamers (for perch). I try to keep the weight of my vest or bag as low as possible.
