we talk a lot about flies but not about what to put them in. so heres an easy home made fly box that takes about a 1/2 - 1 hour to make
1/4 inch foam sheet
tin box or altoids box (i used a cabelas gift card box $2)
measure the box and cut the foam into strips to fit the box.
pinking shears will give you equal indentations to make the slit to hold the fly and will look like the more expensive boxes.
apply the glue and install the foam strips inside the box
stick your flies into the slits in the foam. close the cover and shake the box vigorously to ensure the flies stay in place.
most folks dont believe they will stay in place because its not one of those expensive c&f style box
here is another one with 1 piece of foam. repeat the measure, cut, glue, install process as above.
thanks for looking
