Default Cliffs bugger box

Is it worth the money for one I will be musky fishing and need some big flies and lots of room.

Thanks

Ask yourself these questions? Is a $30 to $40 fly box worth it to protect hundreds of dollars of flies? Is it worth it to protect the one fly that can help you catch the musky of a lifetime? If you tied the flies, is it worth it to protect the time and effort you put into tying them?

Cliff's Bugger Beast Box should have enough room for Musky flies.

Other boxes to look at is the Fly Fitters Ontario or Superior boxes. You can get them through specialty shops like Bear's Den. I don't own any of these, but I plan on putting all my Striped Bass flies and Tarpon flies in Ontario boxes and all my Baja California flies in a Superior box.

I've got a Bugger Barn and love it, but I'm not sure its big enough for surface musky flies. I've got mine fairly full, mostly with streamers, and have to carefully place the poppers to make sure it will close and that stuff doesn't get squashed too much. If you're going to have lots of stuff like those below, I'd stay away from the Bugger Barn.

C'mon Cliff... admit it! You have a vested interest in these 'Cliff' boxes!

While they do obviously appeal to me, I'm not making a nickel off them.

I've used Cliff's Bugger Beast for my Musky and Pike flies since they hit the market. I've been very pleased with them and have no problem recommending them. There is plenty of room. The flies don't get damaged and the blue foam holds them in place.

I do believe that I will have to pick up one of these bugger barns. Looks like a great box.

Seeing a box full of flies, is one of the cool things that I see, I cannot explain why I like looking at them so much.
