    You are correct...sewing needle cases. I used to have a few, but unfortunately, they're long gone...

    Hi MikeyBob365,

    If you just want to have containers for your flies you can get good ones at your local pharmacy. Find a prescription bottle you like the size of and as your pharmacist to sell you a few. Don't get the child proof lids. Now if you want the wood ones then I can understand that.

    Another very good way to carry small flies is in Altoid metal boxes. You get the added benefit of eating the mints.

    plastic 35mm film canisters work well, too. they're also fairly waterproof.
