Default saltwater fly box

I am looking for a warmwater/saltwater fly box that can hold flies up to 6 inches long. I like double bunnies and huge deceivers not to mention the synthetics. Are there any Allens that fit this? I am not looking to make one. I have tried that and they all dont come out that well i have the cash to buy one so why not?

To answer your question, there is an Allen Guide box that is similar in size to the Cliff's Bugger Barn.

Talking Re: saltwater fly box

I'd go with the Cliff myself except that after looking one over I made my own. I recyled an unused pistol case I got in a transaction, traced out the outline of closed cell foam from the foam that came with the case, cut 1/2" deep slots lengthwise, applied some gorilla glue to the bottom, replaced the original foam with a book in between and closed it for 8 hours. The only thing I paid for was the glue cause I needed a new bottle anyway. I put a fishing sticker on the front and saved myself $45+. It was almost harder to tie some saltwater flies... But it isn't bright yellow?!

Plastic pencil boxes by Playskool. Just add your choice of foam.

Stl_geoff posted this DIY box from Joann's awhile back, at $7.19 each they are hard to pass up, and look to be the same plastic box as the Cliff's Bugger Box, all you need is some of that sheet foam from the craft store and you can build your own.
