    Default Large boxes for fly storage

    I've been tying enough flies that I think it would be good to invest in several large clear hard plastic fly boxes with as many compartments as possible. Anyone know where I can find some? It should look like something fly shops keep their flies in or maybe like really big dry fly boxes. Thanks!

    For storage at home I picked up a large clear one at Lowe's', it had do it yourself dividers and I put all my old dries - nymphs - and wets in it when I settled here. It was affordable because it was not considered a fly box

    I'd probably just go with some of those big old Plano utility/tackle boxes.

    That's what I've been using. The Planos are readily available and do a fine job with compartments.

    be creative, experiment
    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    I've picked up some nice cheap ones at WalMart in the craft section.
