Default No more lost flies!

Do you have a problem dropping dry flies out of your box or having the wind blow a dozen of your precious hand-tied dries out on the river?
I have discovered a solution!
Cut some of those plastic sheet refrigerator magnets into pieces and use a Glue-stick to glue them to the bottom of the compartments of your dry fly box. Problem Solved!

Nice, I've been doing something similar for years. Works.

If your mayfly patterns are more ephemeral than the real thing, this will help!

That is a good tip! I did something similiar to the base of my Peak vice to hold hooks from wandering off while I'm tying.
