  1. Default got me a nice fly box

    I saw the okuma 16 compartment fly boxes online for like 25 bux and liked the looks of them. being a cheapie and all I wasn't gonna spend 25 dollars plus 5 bux shipping to get it tho. came across the next best thing cause I am the bargain master!! this guys makes these ones and sells them on ebay! I got 12 free pimp indicators with it also! check it out! it cost 17 bux shipped! this a quality aluminum made fly box! you push the lil clips and the windows spring open and everything! sweet!! the lil compartments look like they could hold prolly 10-15 nymphs if not more in each! can't wait to start filling this one up! I tried to find the link to post it to you guys but it seems he doesn't have it listed anymore in his store?

    Default Re: got me a nice fly box

    Hi George
    Nice boxes, The only problem I've had with an Okuma Box was I had a few large stonefly nymphs & small streamers on the foam side & when I opened the box they had caught on the little wire releases & a few compartments opened & I dumped some flies because naturally it was upside down. Now I put a top mark on the outside of the foam side & only keep smaller stuff on that side so it does'nt happen again.

    thanks for the tip. my buddy told me he opened a compartment of dries in a heavy wind and created a hatch on the river! lol

    Let me see if I have this right...
    Okuma, who stole the classic Wheatley designs have now also been copied by others who can low-ball Okuma?

    Kinda makes me wonder where it'll end, them paying us to use their stuff?

    I used to use the Okuma boxes, so I have another little warning. I stored dries in the compartments and nymphs on the flat foam. Sometimes the wing or the hackle on a dry would catch in the little clip that keeps the lid shut on the compartments and when I pushed the latch and the lid popped open....you guessed it...I would instantly launch a fly (or 2 or 3) out into the stream.
