cheaper to just go to micheals and buy some 6mm foam, spray it with adhesive, then cut the slots.

The Art Bin boxes are the exact same as the Cliffs boxes except for color and sell for $12 ($6 on sale) and the foam is $1.

Here is a picture of a Cliff's "The Beast" for comparison. You can see they are the same thing other than color. Even the foam is the same 6 mm thick stuff that has been sliced.

Interesting...makes sense.

I think on the waters I fish, throwing one of those out would scare everything to death

If you guys have a Joanne's near you they are selling the box in my pictures for $4.99 right now. I just picked up another one to use for large trout/bass flies. That plus the 6mm foam for $1 and you just spent $6 for the very same box Cliff sells for $45.

If you want to shop the online store you can get the same box Cliff use for his $60 box on sale for $9 right now, That plus two pieces of foam instead of one and you have a monster streamer box for dirt cheap.

The one in the pic above is for pike flies.

I haven't tied much this year, and frankly have not done much fishing either. But, I have enough flies already to go when opportunity knocks!

Dang!!! Well if all else fails you can always start your own tackle shop and start selling! haha

I love some of those bunny streamer boxes you have. Those would kill for big browns and largemouth. You dont mind if I copy a pattern or two i hope?
