Default Why are your flies in plastic boxes?

I know there is a strong percentage of fly anglers that not only love the sport, but take extreme pride in the amazing and beautiful gear they own. We stash cash for months to afford that coveted rod. we take care of those reels as carefully as our own children. we painstakingly tie flies for hours... days...weeks on end. And then..... we stick them in a plastic box???
THE MOST IMPORTANT part of our inventory. The single thing that separates fly fishing from all other fishing. Without the fly, there is no fly fishing. we tie them with pride and we show them to our friends, our families... Our dogs & cats We show them off on the internet. Yet they quietly disappear into some insignificant case until they are ready for action.

What can we do???

Might I suggest, A custom, one of a kind wood fly box?

Maybe a set for all occasions?

Maybe something from the wildest wood you've ever seen?

Maybe something completely custom that we design together?

Let me make an heirloom box for you! The woods available will make your eyes cross!

And my artistic engravings can turn even the simplest wood into something magnificent

Let me make something special for you, or for that person you know who seems to have it all. Maybe your dad or mentor that introduced you to this great sport. Do you have a guide you like to use for a certain, special fishery? Let me make a box just for him. A gorgeous wood fly box with his/her name engraved in it with a nice tip tucked inside is a GREAT way to say thank you for all the hard work!

I have all kinds of beautiful boxes available right now on my site Flygrain

Fishing season is upon us! Don't your flies deserve better?

I'd be interested in something that'd be a hybrid between a hinged fly box and a tobacco box. Where it opens up and one side is foam/cork and the other half holds your... Tobacco and tobacco pipe. The day trip fly box of sorts

I'm one horrible drawer. But something like a combo of your 3x5 and pocket box.

LOL! Just texted the kids the website and hinted about Father' Day. Is that being too demanding?
