  1. Re: How many boxes of flies ??

    I like the Scientific Angler boxes with the clear plastic so you can see what is in the box you have pulled out of your vest prior to opening it. I carry 2 of these for nymphs & 2 for drys. I also carry a 5th box for streamers. Need more pockets!

    3 Wheatley boxes.

    1 small metal box w/ clasps for nymphs and wets

    1 medium sized black metal box w/ foam for small dries and small terrestrials

    1 large green painted box w/ one side of clasps for streamers and one side of individual compartments for large dries and large terrestrials.

    Probably about 175 flies all together.

    3) salt water
    1) South Platte
    1) Small Streams
    2) Lake boxes
    1) Arkansas River
    1) The one I pray I never loose, small nymphs and drys box that I take every where when I fish fresh water. I have probably 150 flies in it.

    They all have my name and phone number just in case I loose one and a honest person finds it.

    Give a man a fish, he will have dinner. Teach a man to fish and he will be late for dinner. Quote by Someone. *L*

  4. Default Re: How many boxes of flies ??

    While fishing off a bridge on my lunch break on Tuesday I leaned over and my favorite Wheatley box (the one with all the little individual spring-loaded compartments) fell out of my pocket and into the river.

    This bridge is on a fairly busy road and I resolved my situation by stripping down to boxer shorts and taking the plunge. I picked the box up off the bottom of the river and fished another 10 minutes while my boxers air-dried, in which time I caught a nice 7-8 inch rainbow!
