Default C & F Design Flyboxes

I was looking at maybe getting some C & F fly boxes but when I went to find their website all that came up in my search was places to purchase them. Does anyone have the link to C & F's actual website?

Also, I know some of you use C & F fly boxes. What are their pros and cons? I currently use the Scientific Anglers X-Boxes but am looking for something I can put a few more flies in without having to get a large box. I would like to be able to carry all my flies in one box that is medium size. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I think Scientific Anglers makes/distributes the C&F boxes. Check their
website.

I've used them for six years and have swam a bunch to test them out.
Finally dropped one hard enough to break the latch.
Stick in another acc. page back to back and you can stuff a dozen-dozen more. I guide with 3 boxes right now. Dries, in #1. Nymphs in #2. Streamers in 3. Buying more soon!

I picked up 3 C&F knockoffs on E-Bay.... They're alright for the money ( I think they were about $12. ea) but My C&F is definitely of a better quality.
The only trouble I have with the C&F boxes & the knockoff's too is that if you preload a bunch of flies on the threaders they get all tangled up with each other & the flies in the box. LL bean has some good boxes also & I picked up a few of them last week.

SA distributes C&F products but they are currently in the process of getting rid of the distribution, I believe another company is taking it over.

The actual C&F website is C&F Fly Box - C&F Fly Tying » C&F Design.

I picked up a C&F box this spring. I love the slit foam idea and the box holds over 300 flies. It's two sided so I keep dries on one side and nymphs on the other. Works for me.

I bought one this year and it was ok until I picked up a "Bug Luggage" box. I like it much better.
