Almost 20 years ago I bought this Orvis adjustable fly box for my dry flies. After years and years of repetitive usage the latch finally broke. Best dry fly box I have ever owned, so I ordered 2 more of them and had Orvis put my name and phone number on them which I think is a great option.(if you have ever lost a fly box you know what I mean)

These boxes are simple but are solid, well made and with hinges that are made to last, the lid closes well and the compartment deviders fit perfectly. I have now bought some, not for fishing but I know they will be handy to have around.

I use these boxes mainly for my bass bugs. The flies with weed guards don't play well with slit foam, so these boxes work well. I also use them for my fly "warehouse" that I use to fill my boxes for river use. Good quality build and very durable.

I like these boxes and prefer them over foam slit ones as my flies which I tie with attention to detail do not suffer and don´t get squeezed by foam. I like them a lot. No issues with them at all.

I've used every manner of fly box on the planet but this is , for me, the Holy Grail of on stream fly boxes. I like being able to see what's in my box and reach in and grab a fly with hands shaking while surrounded by fish rising all around me. I do admire folks who can arrange their flies in neat orderly rows and pluck them from their little groves without creating a disaster. Unfortunately, I'm not one of those fisherman.These waterproof adjustable boxes are the essence of simplicity.
Very sturdy and flexible box -
Can be used for several different sized flies. One of the few boxes around for larger flies.

Fly boxes come in may shapes and sizes but when you are on the stream you need a box that performs. How much performance can a fly box offer? A lot, IF it's the adjustable fly box. A fly box that allows you to see what is in it on the first glance. A fly box that is light and easy to open. A fly box that stays shut and keeps water out when it takes that inevitable swim in your favorite stream. This fly box keeps dry flies in perfect condition and doesn't smash hackle like foam boxes. we spend our time making beautiful flies with perfect hackle only to smash them against foam and ruin their effectiveness and buoyancy. NO LONGER! This box keeps our arsenal dry and looking good. fishing bigger extended bodies? no fear! the adjustable fly box allows easy removal of dividers for perfect fitment of your favorite big flies. I use the small size to keep all the life phases of my most used flies together. From emerger to spinner, I got them all in the same box for easy reference and access. never miss matching a hatch again with his box.

Well, I finally broke one of these boxes after 20+ years, so I ordered four more of them to replace it. I'm very fond of these boxes, for several reasons: 1. Semi-waterproof, and they float. 2. Durable 3. Various sizes; and 4. Drop-in compartments Most boxes wind up squashing my flies. These do not. I use several of the large boxes to warehouse and organize my flies, and i carry a small one with me on the creeks.
No Frills, Great Value -

By far the best value for a waterproof fly box anywhere. The adjustable compartments and tough, clear plastic box are just what the doctor ordered for those of us who do not like the tedium of trying to place small flies in a tiny foam slit. I organize my boxes by season and they are stackable! I have never been more organized.
Great Organizer -

Box is strong, and the adjustable dividers make it easier to store flies of different lengths. Heard about it on Tom's Podcast. His recommendation for dry fly storage was solid... this is the right box to keep them from getting crushed.
