I also include a paper towel in the zip bag to catch any extra water on my fingers that might get transferred to the device. Just a few drops of water rolling around in sealed zip bag along with the phone can cause bad outcomes for the phone, at least without something to soak up the water.I haven't posted here for a while.....a little trick to protect your mobile while fishing,a lttle plastic zipbag for deepfrozen food,you can use your phone without taking it out except to take pics.it'll save your phone if you ever have a little bath which happens at times

You can always use a prescription bottle instead of film canister. Not as easy to cut the windows into though. Or you can do what I do. I've got an old plastic Sucrets box (they've unfortunately long since gone back to metal) into the the lid of which I've drilled 12 hole with a 1/16 bit. It stays in a ventilated inner pocket in my vest. Flies I've changed streamside are always dry by the time I get back to the car at the end of the day. Any similar sized plastic box will work.3. Years ago a fellow fly fisherman shared this tip with me and I still have this gadget attached to my vest today. He would take old roll film cases and cut a couple of windows in the sides, then glue a small piece of window screen on the inside of the case to cover the windows. These allow terrific ventilation to quickly dry out any take-off flies yet there is no chance of losing them like we all do when using foam or fleece patches. ...The problem with this is that finding old film cases is getting harder all the time.
Good idea. You can also paint them with Sally Hansen to waterproof them.I use the address labels Trout Unlimited sends you, in their "Join Us" recruitment junk mail, to put my name and address inside my fly boxes. Cover with a piece of Scotch tape, and it's a fairly waterprooof LEGIBLE solution.
Great thread BTW!
