    Maybe you mean a "fly port"? Is it attached to your pack with Velcro?

    If you do a lot of tieing and dont want to toss your attempts you can collect a lot of flies in short order. I went from 1 to filling that up and needing room for my bigger flies and streamers. Now after doing a lot of tieing (nothing else to do) I find that I need another for my proto flies and the tinkering flies. I end up doing a lot of see a few ideas on several flies and see what they all would look like together. When I sit down and just tie to tie I find I can pop out 4-5 differant flies in a few hours. Right now I got one box with small flies, one box with my big streamers and critter flies, and one box with my protos in it.

    At the moment I have a nymph/wet box and a dryfly box that are normally on my person but depending on the day, you might find a streamer box on me somewhere too.
    Warmwater days, is just one box depending on the target species.

    The other flies, n., pl.
    1. dry flies, nymphs, emergers, terrestrials, streamers, etc.

    Just went to 4 thanks to you all turning me on to Angler's Dream Fly Shop. I don't tie.
    Two about six by four inches and two small ones with large compartments for hoppers and larger dries.

    Recently started carrying a second box. I don't see myself going much beyond that.

    Usually just two small ones. I know what works in the places I usually fish and just take those. Maybe a half a dozen different flies of all types but 5-6 of each as I lose a lot and give away a lot.
