    Nice Box - 11/13/2015
    By: from Eastern NC

    Small, light and very nice looking. However, the box is not easy to open and requires a slight twist to get the magnets to release.

    Fantastic lightweight fly box - 9/28/2015
    By: from Glasgow.

    I bought the medium sized fly box. This is the perfect size for fitting in my fly vest pocket. Excellent design. Great shape and very lightweight. Magnets at each corner inside keep the lid closed tight. Label on the back for printing owner details / contents of box. I will be buying more of these.

    Finally found a fly box that puts functionality over form. Light, good looking and easy to operate every time, these boxes will continue to occupy a place in my vest and freshwater tackle bag.

    Very Practical Product - 7/6/2015
    By: from Uniontown, OH

    The Lightweight Floating Fly Box will allow the user to significantly reduce the weight carried in his or her vest. I carry two of these boxes. A large size for streamers and a small size for nymphs and dry flies. I recommend the ripple/ripple style. I am prone to back problems, and using these ultralight fly boxes helps reduce the strain on my back!

    Very Useful - 4/30/2015

    I'm not a fly fisher, but bought this as a gift. It seems very useful, and I had great fun populating it with the flies I also bought. Loved the service, delivery, and quality of everything I purchased.

    I like this because it can float if dropped. I have purchased waders so I've been looking for a fly box like this.

Orvis Lightweight Fly Boxes

The Orvis Lightweight Fly Box is made of indestructible foam that floats, so you’ll never again lose a collection of flies to the bottom of a river. The foam protects your flies and will not break. Stepped on, folded in half, or run over by an SUV, the box springs back into shape.

There are no hinges, latches, or inserted dividers to crack, lose, or rust. The ingenious magnet system locks the lid in place; simply shut the lid and the magnets keep it snapped securely shut. Inside, on a choice of rippled or flat foam, your flies are displayed in the open. No digging around in tiny compartments through an assortment of entangled flies. Your flies are laid out right in front of you, by size, color, or however you decide. The ergonomic shape of the box is designed to fit well in your hand as you deliberate over your next selection.

The exterior covering resists abrasion and sports a handsome Orvis logo.The back of the box features a label for your name, address and phone, so even if you leave your box streamside, odds are you still won’t lose it for good. In three sizes and configurations for every fresh or saltwater need.
