Thought I would bring this thread back to see how many folks use wallets instead of boxes. Just won a bid for a leather wallet on Ebay and am thinking about making some this winter. Leather wallets have a cool retro look about them and appear to be good for the streamers.

Here is a Richard Wheatley Wallet I picked up somewhere in the 70's for wets and streamers...

I believe I got this wallet at Chuck Fothergill's Shop in Aspen, CO in 1975...

That gave me a chuckle. I have never heard it put quite that way. Those are great Ard. I can see why the black one stays home..

Nice looking streamer wallets, I'm going to have to do some looking around and see if I can snag one.

Dave: How about posting a photo of the one you purchased off Ebay?

Hi Larry,

We have not left yet................ Anyway, just type in Fly Wallet on the auction site and then scroll through the offerings if you want a vintage wallet. I took a look and there is one very similar to the old black one of mine there now. Some look like they need some cleaning up but there will sometimes be a nice one on there.

You know Dave, I've been pretty patient waiting for the picture

I fixed the attachments on the first post, we have a thread up now about the eyes of hooks and what knots, etc. If you check the hooks in the working streamer wallet you'll see ball eyes pretty much all around.

Glad you liked that Dan, I just spotted your post, this thread has to be almost 2 years old....................

Just found another picture hanging around, this is just like the big black one but was made with red leather. It is old but in like new condition.
