Prefer Wheatly Boxes but make the mistake of seeing some that catch my eye and purchasing without ever bothering to think if they will fit in my vest properly! So I end up with a bunch of boxes that stay at home for storage or have to be carried in a bag. Saltwater I like the big monster box for the boat and the cheap plastic ones for the beach in my wader pocket.

Oh, I don't know. Maybe Wheatley. Or maybe DeWitt. I dunno. Depends on the day, I guess (boy, have I gotten a log of mileage out of this pic or what?)
I liked to fell out of my chair when you wrote about the mileage from this pic, as I was just thinking the same thing. Without a doubt this is the most recycled pic on the forum and it still goes over well.
gary, every time i see that immense mound o' boxes i chuckle a bit...legendary
the other day my wife was givin me you know what for being a gear junkie. so i said "come here and check this out, this is what you have to look forward to."
I just have a thing for Altoids cans... some craft foam and glue and i have a 3$ fly box that makes my breath smell good for the ladies. For me theyre just the right size. I've found that bigger boxes are inconvenient when I fish, i end up putting things in them i wont ever use etc. one altoids box for nymphs and midges, one for surface bugs, and another for some streamers or misc things. Thats all I need
