    Default A Pair Of Streamer Wallets


    I said something in a thread a few days back about getting a fly fishing buzz when I open a wallet or box full of pretty flies and got this as one of the posts;

    For some types of fishing, my approach is more pragmatic. But for others, a certain amount of elegance seems fitting. Any tips on where I can get a nice, reasonably priced leather fly wallet?
    I responded to the post but am now going to go over the top by posting photos of a couple of my wallets with flies in them. I hope you don't mind.

    Finding a good streamer wallet is a journey. I have been blessed to have found some that have become part of my life. The little Orvis one took awhile to grow on me but now it is the one I carry. The big black book is the mother ship that stays behind and holds inventory.

    This Streamer Book was 40 years old when I got it in 1980

    There are ten thick cotton felt pages & two leader pockets.

    This is a mid 90's wax cotton wallet from Orvis with a full brass zipper and shearing lining.

    These are the trout streamers that get used, as they become too worn one from the Mother Ship takes their place.

    If you have a cool wet fly wallet or book please feel free to post it up, I love seeing this stuff.

    Thanks guys,

    George, it came out of the Catskill region of New York, remember I'm a transplanted Pennsylvanian.

    Larry, I usually leave the big book at camp or at home. It serves mostly as a warehouse for stocking the little Orvis. When I used to carry it in a est pocket I kept the lanyard attached to the vest always.

    Hi to All,

    Wow, some nice stuff in this thread. Ard, I haven't seen a streamer waller like that for years. Of all the flies I think streamers are the most beautiful. Salmon flies are right up there but I like streamers.

    Hi streamertyer, welcome to the forum. I hope you stick around and get to know our great members. Very nice streamers.
