Wooden Fly Boxes

I have gone through maybe a dozen fly boxes. I want something small and with some character. I only carry around 5 patterns at best so I don’t need anything crazy. If I can’t catch something with one of those 5 patterns then it’s not the fish it’s my presentation, or lack thereof.

I searched the internet and came up with a few options. The first option is a four compartment box made out of maple. I don’t really like the hinge on it but it’s something I can live with, and is my current “in use” box.

The next is one I was recently turned onto by a fellow Tenkara Angler. I like the leather hinge in this much better but it’s a bit deep for my liking to carry in my pack. I think this one will hold the two Tenkara style flies I use and tie.

The last option isn’t much of a fly box, it’s more of a fly container. It’s round and would work in my pack but i’m going to use it keep a stack of flies I recently tie. So ultimately the last two will end up on my fly tying bench.
