Default Large boxes for fly storage

I've been tying enough flies that I think it would be good to invest in several large clear hard plastic fly boxes with as many compartments as possible. Anyone know where I can find some? It should look like something fly shops keep their flies in or maybe like really big dry fly boxes. Thanks!

For storage at home I picked up a large clear one at Lowe's', it had do it yourself dividers and I put all my old dries - nymphs - and wets in it when I settled here. It was affordable because it was not considered a fly box

Been a while since you've posted,

I'd probably just go with some of those big old Plano utility/tackle boxes.

That's what I've been using. The Planos are readily available and do a fine job with compartments.
