Not a bad idea there. Makes the bugger beast look like a damn ripoff, which it kinda is.

Nick: The bugger beast is the same exact box, just a different color and has the foam pre-installed.

I think this Allen fly box is actually great dimensions and style. Might pick one up eventually.

Would not surprise me if Flambeau is not supplying their boxes to some of these other brands!

Personally, I still can't see paying that much for a plastic fly box.
But, that's just me!

$6.49 plus a couple dollars for foam is more my kind of box! There's a Joann's about a mile from my house too!

Did I not post these pictures here?

The box with the red foam is an artbin box the size of a Cliff's Beast.

These other boxes are from Flameau. The biggest box is 17" wide and the two smaller boxes are the same boxes Cliff uses for his Bugger Barns.

Where did you get those flambeau boxes? I checked their website but you have to order a case of 24......

I ended up getting the Allen Guide fly box. Awesome large fly box and for 1/3 of the price of their competitors. Check them out.

I just swapped all my bass flys into a single partitioned box I got at Harbor Freight for under $4.
They had been in two boxes-one, a 4X8" Flambeau foam lined box and the other a 4.5X7.5" two inch deep pencil box I got at the dollar store and lined with foam.
The new box has 18- 2X1.5" spaces with removable partitions.
With some of the HUGE deer hair,balsa and foam bugs I got in last year's swap I needed to condense. Now the box has 2- 7" X1.5" slots and a dozen smaller slots.
I actually wanted something without foam so the weed guards wouldn't get bent.
I think my dry flys are going into something similar but smaller that won't smash hackles so much as the foam boxes.

I used to use the big saltwater partition boxes like you are talking about. Didn't like them much after a while. The spots are too deep and the flies jumble around, crushing and drying them into weird positions.
